Ken worked for 30 years as a firefighter reaching the rank of Battalion Chief. He also ran his own drywall business. He was a gifted carpenter who built his own houses, as well as numerous projects for family and friends.

He was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and it was his great joy in serving many different callings.

He also spent as much time as possible in the great outdoors, hunting and fishing. He went salmon fishing in Alaska nearly every year after retiring from his firefighter position with Ogden City.

He loved Christmas and always decorated his home elaborately. He was given an award by North Ogden City for the joy his decorations brought to others. Many in the city called his house “The Christmas House”.

He will be greatly missed, and the void left by him, will never be filled.
