Ken was also the president of Grant County Farm Bureau for many years and the local Jaycees chapter. Ken loved to garden since his first job until his death. There was always plenty for family and friends. He began collecting in his later years. He treasured every collection. In his life Ken collected many colleagues, friends, and acquaintances. Everyone was part of his personal collection and loved. Ken and his wife, Barbara, traveled a great deal, and he was very proud that he had visited all the states in the United States.
