Ken was a family man. He was a phenomenal chef who enjoyed cooking for his family. He loved music in all forms, from collecting vinyl, to serenading his loved ones with his wonderful voice and guitar skills. He enjoyed traveling with his family, camping, hiking, spending as much time outdoors as possible and working with his hands and remodeling homes. Ken was a 1994 graduate of Bellefontaine High School. He worked in the foundry of Tool & Technology in Ft. Loramie for over twenty years. He had recently realized his dream of starting a business with his wife, RPS Ventures, and becoming a general contractor. Above all, he adored his loving wife and partner and the family they created. He was a dedicated husband and father who always put his family first. He will be sorely missed by his loving family and friends.
