Kenneth A. “Kenney” Wesson, Jr. 71, a lifelong resident of Alstead, NH, passed away on June 5, 2018 at the Cheshire Medical Center, Dartmouth Hitchcock, Keene, NH.

Kenny’s parents, Ruby (Willis) and Kenneth A. Wesson, Sr., proudly welcomed their son into the world on February 28, 1947, in Keene, NH. He grew up in Alstead attending local schools and was a 1965 graduate of Vilas High School in Alstead.

He proudly served his country for 8 years in the United States Army as a vehicle mechanic stationed in Korea during the Vietnam War. While stationed in Korea, he met his wife, Yong Suk Song, and they were married for 49 years until his passing.

Ken worked for over 35 years as a machinist with the former Kingsbury Corporation in Keene.

He had a love of nature and enjoyed taking long hikes in the woods. He also enjoyed working around his home. Ken was an avid collector of model trains and loved to listen to music, especially classic rock. He also enjoyed watching Si-Fi movies. His family brought him his greatest joy in his life.

He will be greatly missed by many, especially his wife, Yong Suk Wesson of Alstead; his sisters, Elisabeth A. Duquette and her husband, Brian of Swanzey, NH, Judy Howard of Keene, Dorothy Torsey and her husband, Bert, of Marlborough, NH; his nephews, Chad Duquette, Shawn Howard, Darrel Davey, Daniel Davey; and his nieces, Heidi Duquette and Leslie Minns.

Yong and Family, I mailed you a card, returned..
Please accept our most heartfelt sympathies for your loss. Our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
A strange thing is memory, and hope; one looks backward, and the other forward; one is of today, the other of tomorrow.
Hold on to your Memories... They last forever..
Judy and Bill

Dear Family:

I worked with Ken at Kingsbury for a lot of years. I was in both sales and engineering and talked to him a lot. If I had a problem on the shop floor he would always help me. He was a really nice man and talked about his family a lot.
