Ken loved growing up in Ireland. He was active in sports during his school years, especially Rugby and Soccer, and graduated from Wallace High School. He loved his homeland. Memories of friends and loved ones there were dear to his heart. After moving to America he thoroughly enjoyed his many visits back home.

In recent years he had the privilege of travelling on the Honor Flight to Washington, DC, and enjoyed breakfast gatherings with veteran friends. Ken worked as a mason for many years perfecting his craft. He was a proud second generation bricklayer and worked alongside his father William and brothers, Brian and William Jr., constructing many buildings throughout the Hudson Valley and New York City. Even in his 80's he built a beautiful chimney and fireplace in his home. Ken was a member of Leptondale Bible Church and spent many years loving and serving the Lord. He enjoyed studying Bible Prophecy and reading the Word of God. He is survived by his loving wife Tonya of 43 years, daughters Iris and Jennifer, and his brother, William (wife Janet).
