When not working, Ken enjoyed working in his garden, growing his Christmas trees, helping his neighbors, and hunting in New Hampshire and Montana. His greatest pleasure came from watching his grandchildren (Jessica, Jan-Marie, Andy, Jordan, Janelle, Rebecca, Lauren, and Madison) and recently his great grandchildren (Macey and Jackson) grow into wonderful individuals. Ken also enjoyed the family’s home in Eaton, New Hampshire, near where he grew up.

I have many happy memories growing up with the Rancourts and I'll always remember Mr. Rancourt for all the help he gave my mom & I after my dad died. He was always there for us and watched over us. I will miss him terribly and our backyard chats. He was the best neighbor anyone ever had and dear friend. He is in a special place in Heaven.
