Kenneth Eugene Rainwater of Richardson, TX, passed away May 8, 2018. Born in Checotah, OK on October 8, 1925, he spent most of his youth in Council Hill, OK. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Mildred "Kay" McKay, with whom he enjoyed 54 years of marriage. After proudly serving in the US Army in WWII, Ken graduated from Oklahoma State with a degree in Business Journalism. Ken enjoyed a career in advertising, marketing and sales and won several honors for editing award winning publications. He held the President's office in multiple trade and business organizations during that time. The most enjoyable stage of his career, however, was the 15 years spent working with his son, Don Rainwater, at Southwest Incentives. Ken was an enduring fan of the Texas Rangers and spent many seasons enjoying baseball at the ballpark with his family. He grew up loving sports and especially enjoyed golf in his later years. He stated once that his proudest family moment was the birth of his two fine sons, whom he proudly watched grow in character and stature, especially in their Christian faith. A member of Community Bible Chapel of Richardson, TX, Ken was a faithful and much-loved servant of Christ. He is survived by sons Donald Ray Rainwater (Heather), and Richard Charles "Chuck" Rainwater (Charlotte), of Richardson, TX. Grandchildren Jessica (Rocky) Schaller; Joel (Claire) Rainwater; Alicia (Timothy) Hanchin; Stephen Rainwater; Kevin "Jake" Rainwater; Katie (Kenny) Freeland; and three great-grandchildren, along with sister Dorothy Warren.
