Ken was born with a congenital defect in his heart and his fighting spirit and strong will kept him strong. In his younger years, Ken enjoyed bowling. He was an avid computer gamer and as a child through the Make A Wish Foundation, he met the WWF Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan.
As an adult, he loved to play darts, and over time, he became an excellent pool player and traveled all over playing 9-ball tournaments with his team. His extensive collection of trophies came from all over, even Las Vegas. He also attended World Harvest Church in Elkhart where he met many friends.
In his memory, donations may be made to either Riley’s Hospital for Children or the Make a Wish Foundation to fulfill the dreams of another child.
