FEBRUARY 1, 1935 – MARCH 23, 2019
Ever since I can remember we always went to my Uncle Ken and Aunt Sue’s for holidays and summer time we took advantage of them having a pool. During holidays they would have a large dining room table full of family sitting in front of the fancy china that Aunt Sue would pull out for special occasions and holidays.
While dinner’s being cooked the guys would play pool in the basement with a drink or two.
Uncle Ken had a laugh that no one will ever forget and when I think of him I see my Uncle smiling and enjoying life.
He will be missed greatly.
