After 30 years, he retired from Caterpillar, and then Ken had his own business (Ken’s Repairs).\n\nAs a member of Harvest Christian Church, Ken served in Missions.

The family will miss family get togethers and daily phone calls to his children to greet them for the day.\n\nSpecial thank you to Gene Campbell, son-in-law, and daughter Robin Campbell for loving care of Kenneth.
