Ken died July 31.
He was many things to many people. He was an amazing father and grandfather, and a wonderful brother to all of his sisters, and his love for his family and friends knew no bounds. He was a devout fisherman, an outstanding mechanic and an all-around great man. He served in the U.S. Air Force with the same passion he had for life and was a true patriot until the end. No matter what life threw in his path, he may have stumbled, but he never quit getting up. He defied the odds time and time again. If someone told Ken he couldn’t or wouldn’t be able to do something, he strengthened his resolve and did it anyway. He had a great positive outlook on life and did his best to show others how to see the best in everything. It seemed that there was nothing that he could not overcome. Unfortunately his body no longer had the same strength. He will be greatly missed and never forgotten.
Arrangements were by the Williams Dingmann Family Funeral Home in Princeton, Minn.
