He loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman, enjoying fishing on Lake Michigan and many trips up north and to Canada with friends, his son, and grandsons. Ken was a good cook and enjoyed time spent tending his garden and having friends and family over for his "wild game feeds".

Ken is survived by his son, Kenneth "Mike" Kohn; two grandsons, Christopher (special friend, Ashley) Kohn and Peter Dobrzynski; great-grandchild, Austin Kohn; two sisters, Mary Kuhfuss and Sharon Knopp; special friends, Lee and Dee; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.
In addition to his parents, Ken was preceded in death by his dear friend and companion for many years, Char Nelson.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date at the Sheboygan Outboard Club in Sheboygan. Details for the Celebration of Life will be posted at the Outboard Club on Labor Day.
In lieu of flowers, funds are being accepted towards a memorial park bench.
Ken's family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the caregivers at Golden Harbor, in particular Linda and Dawn, and Grace Hospice for the care and compassion shown to him.
