Ken spent his early years in the Haddonfield area of south Jersey, but married and raised his family in northern Morris County, working at Howmet Corporation in Dover for 32 years as a machinist. He and Wally then retired to Roanoke Virginia, recently moving to Leola, PA. Besides serving his family as loving husband, father, and grandfather, he was a WWII veteran, and served as church deacon for 45 years.
