Ken was born on July 29, 1951, in Sumter, S.C., to Boyd and Pauline (Beique) Bennett. He attended West High School in Anchorage and graduated in 1970. Ken then served in the United States Army, stationed at Fort Greely, Alaska for active duty and was honorably discharged in 1977.
While serving in the Army, he learned his skills as a diesel mechanic. Ken traveled to various locations throughout Alaska as a heavy equipment mechanic. In 2003, Ken retired from Locals 302 Operating Engineers.
Ken enjoyed spending his time outdoors hunting, fishing, gardening and working. He was an introspective person that best expressed himself through writing and photography. If Ken was at home, you could find him watching ballgames or following the stock exchange, with his cat, Fluffy, by his side. Ken loved all animals, nature and his family.
Ken will be lovingly remembered by his stepmother, Shirley Bennett; his daughters, Molly (Gregory); Jessica; and Rachel (Shane). He will be fondly remembered by his ten grandchildren, Caylee; Emily; Mikaele; Reagan; Mariah; Maren; Jaden; Mya; Mason; and Melia; his siblings, Michael (Rhoda); Richard; Lorraine; Marlene; Jeanne (Carson); Linda (Tony); and Keith (Dena); as well as many, many nieces and nephews.
Ken is preceded in death by his parents, Boyd and Pauline; and sister, Kathleen.
Ken has always rescued strays or taken care of any animals in need. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Alaska SPCA, www.alaskaspca.org, in his honor.
