He first married Diana Linn and later married Peggy Thompson. Ken was an Army veteran and retired at 48 years old from Navistar in Springfield, OH.

Kenneth is survived by his children Wendy (Andrew) Holmes, Heather Rosmann, Melissa (Peter) Jeffers, Jennifer (Charles) Cole, Todd Wesley (Laura) Bowman; ten grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; many nieces and nephews; two brothers-in-law, Elmer Hepner and Clarence VerSluys.
