He was married to Betty Williamson. They have one daughter, Jessie Diffee, her husband Ray and two grandchildren, Tamas and Leah.
Ken is also survived by his parents Lauretta and Mercer Buchanan of Waco and Frank and Aileen Williamson of Grandberry. He has two beloved brothers, Scott Williamson of Leander, and Merchant Buchanan, of Austin, his wife Ann, and their children, Ainsley and Brayden, Ken's loving sister Elizabeth Dietz, with her husband Bill Dietz Jr. and their children, Liam and Alex. Ken graduated from Waco High School and California State in Long Beach. He is presently the President of Texas Cardiovascular Medicine.
Those who knew Ken, knew that he never met a stranger, was loyal to a fault, loved life, friends, and family. As a young man, Ken loved nothing more (other than having a great time with friends), than being Crucifer and Server for St Paul's Episcopal Church for four years. Ken was an amazing, loving, and mischievous son, a wonderful, devoted husband, and an unbelievable adoring father and grand father. PawPaw was the name he loved most to hear. He doted on his grandchildren, and they thrived with him. Ken openly loved his extended family and friends. He relived memories constantly. His was a life cut too short, and he will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved him.
The Memorial Service for Ken will be at the Crawford-Bowers Funeral home, 3220 S. 31st Street in Temple on Monday, August 26, at 2:00 p.m., with the Reverend Richard Johnston presiding over the service.
