A boy officer, Class of 1965, Lowell High School. After graduation, Ken served in the United States Air Force from 1967 to 1971 and was a life member of the DAV. Ken’s many enjoyments came from buying and selling collectibles (much to Michelle’s chagrin), hiking the “big” desert and tending bar from Massachusetts to Arizona. All the people who are blessed to have known Ken will agree “A day without laughter is a day wasted.” Charlie Chaplin.
There will be no memorial service. Ken’s ashes will be interred along side his family at St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Chelmsford, Massachusetts, at the family’s convenience.
