Kenneth G. Kvanvig, 90, of Raleigh, died on September 3, 2019. Ken was proud of many things, especially his three boys and their families. He was a committed Christian who played an important role in the early formative years of First Assembly of God in Raleigh. Later, he joined North Haven Church in Raleigh. He consistently made a point of affirming his confidence and trust in the life and death of Jesus for his eternal destiny, and made this affirmation a foundation for his life. Ken is survived by his wife Edith Kvanvig; sons Timothy Kvanvig (Marilyn), Jonathan Kvanvig (Carol), and Paul Kvanvig (Aletha); grandchildren Anna, Jordan, Brittany, Jared, Eric, Ryan, and Ashley; great grandchildren Logan, Natalie, Harrison, June, Weston, August, and Anders; and brother Clifford Kvanvig (Ferne). Ken was preceded in death by his first wife Alice Mae Kvanvig, parents George and Mae Kvanvig, and brother Alvin Kvanvig. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, September 7 at 2:00pm at North Haven Church, 6620 Six Forks Rd, in Raleigh.

Mr. Kvanvig hired me in 1969 as a medical secretary at Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic. I was 20 and just out of medical secretarial school with no experience. I worked there for almost 46 years, retiring in 2015. Mr. Kvanvig was always so kind to me and helped me learn on the job. He was so patient with me. I’ll never forget him. I knew he was a Christian as I am also a Christian. I am so sorry for Edith’s loss and the boys that I saw grow up.

We remember Ken and Edith with affection and high esteem. Praying God's comfort and care for the family during this time of sadness. Joy cometh after...

I will always remember Uncle Ken's smile and a quiet laugh. We didn't see him very often but my Dad certainly shared many stories about growing up with his big brother. There always seemed to be some kind of "shenanigans" involved.

Uncle Ken was a godly man and will be missed by all that knew him.
My heart and prayers go out to the whole family.

Brother Kvanvig was my second father growing up as a child and it was always a blessing when we saw him and Edith on our visits to North Haven. Sissy and I send our condolences to Edith and the family. You will be in our prayers. I can hear hear Ken and Elwood singing a duet in heaven now.
