He graduated from Alfred University with a BA in Business. He went on to have a fulfilling and distinguished career in the flooring industry. His travels took him all over the East Coast and New England, where he met many people he enjoyed and whose lives he touched.
As a father, and a former Eagle Scout himself, Ken was very involved in the lives of his sons as they grew up through scouting, little league, church memberships, and school athletics.
Ken loved his pontoon boat, “The African Queen.” He made many special memories at Conesus Lake.
His family and friends were most important to Kenny, and a hole is now in our hearts.
