Ken was a well-known cattle rancher in the area. He was an experienced Teamster who handled draft horses, and he received a lifetime achievement from the Inland Draft & Teamsters Association for his long-time involvement with their organization.
He loved all animals, especially his dogs. He was a family man who cherished spending time with his family and friends. He had a very generous nature and a natural gift for storytelling.
