He was a lifelong resident of Crystal Falls. As a young boy Ken lived on Swan Lake before moving into a home that his dad built in the City of Crystal Falls. Years later he and his wife Teresa were able to move back to beautiful Swan Lake. Ken loved the tranquility of the lake and his camp. He also cherished spending time in the solitude of his deer blind at camp. Each week Ken looked forward to golfing with his regular "golf buddies" on Tuesday night. Ken's greatest pleasure came from spending time with his family.
