Born June 28, 1944 in Waverly, NY the son of Lauri and Lillian (Honka) Koski, passed away very unexpectedly on Saturday, June 7, 2014, at the age of 69. His father, Lauri; brother, Lauri "Punkin" Koski; father-in-law, Vincent Glynn; and mother-in-law, Antoinette Glynn predeceased him. He is survived by his beloved mother, Lillian; loving wife, Patricia, with whom he would have celebrated 50 wonderful years of life and love with this coming September; sons, Gregory Koski, Timothy Koski, Kevin (Rebecca) Koski, Eric (Jill) Koski and the son he helped raise, Monttryal Jones; adored grandchildren, Tierney Sullivan with her mom, Mary; Jack, Nicholas, Catherine, and Elliott; siblings, Sandra Ferguson, Eugene (Michelle) Koski, David (Terri) Koski and Raymond (Sharon) Koski; along with several nieces and nephews; and his faithful friend, Dennis Poole. At the age of 18, Kenneth began his working career at American Bridge in Elmira Heights, NY. He was dedicated and faithful to the facilities and other companies that transpired there, retiring from CAF USA. Ken truly loved his co-workers of many years, they were like a second family to him. He was a member of Trout Unlimited and loved fishing. He loved his garden, his flowers and his many years of living on East Hill. A day never passed that Ken's family, friends and especially his grandchildren didn't feel the impact of his loving kindness, unselfishness, and caring and generous spirit. He will be missed but never forgotten. A Celebration of Ken's Life will take place privately at the convenience of his family. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Olthof Funeral Home, Inc., 1050 Pennsylvania Ave., Elmira/Southport, NY. Ken's guestbook may be signed in obituaries at www.olthof.com.
