He loved hunting and fishing, being outdoors and working in his garden. Ken had a great love of his extended family in Waynesville, North Carolina and the Great Smoky Mountains. He spent many family reunions and vacations there and would always feel the need to come back to his roots. It was there that he felt most at home and at peace with himself. He was quick with a joke to cheer you up if you were down but most of all he loved his family. There was nothing he wouldn't do to ensure their well being and happiness. He was the rock and the glue that held it all together.
