After serving in the U.S. Navy during World War II, Kenneth spent his career as an educator. He was a teacher, Jr. Hi. principal in Sunnyside, WA and high school vice-principal and principal in Edmonds, WA. Kenneth was a beloved father, brother and husband. He loved playing baseball, camping, riding his trail bike in the hills above Lake Chelan, road trips on his Goldwing. He was a great story teller around the campfire and a good camp cook. He was a not so fearless hunter. Kenneth was steadfast in his friendships, a principled leader as a school principal, loyal, dutiful, displayed exquisite penmanship and had a wonderful sense of humor. He was a rock on whom others depended. In his words "Trying and failing is OK, but failing to try is not OK."
