Ken was very active in the Canadian Lakes Community where he and Barb first bought a weekend getaway home in 1978 that they eventually occupied year round after his retirement. He cofounded the Canadian Lakes Ford Club with Bob Emerson, sponsoring an annual Golf Outing that raised tens of thousands of dollars for Mecosta County Hospital. Two years ago, at 82, he conceived, funded and oversaw a team of talented people who donated services for the construction of the Reuther Music Pavilion as a gift to the Canadian Lakes Community. In his spare time he enjoyed home improvement projects and gardening.
