Ken retired from the Post Office with thirty-three years of carrying mail. He spent a lot of time on camping trips with family and friends. He enjoyed fishing as time would allow, and loved to cut wood for the wood stove. Taking care of his home and wife were his priorities in his life, besides making sure all of his family was well cared for. He enjoyed seeing everyone as often as possible. Ken's pastime was doing word find puzzles.
