Following in his mother’s family footsteps, he became a licensed barber for almost 20 years, spending most of those years as owner/operator of the Village Square Barber Shop in Union Lake. He was an avid sports fanatic who lived for March Madness often spending the week before in Las Vegas getting ready. A baseball player in his younger years, Ken was a walking encyclopedia of sports knowledge. He was the most genuine person who was loved by everyone and “Baby Kenny” will be missed forever.
