Ken was an avid bowler who participated in leagues at Earl Bowl in Morwood. Recently, he was able to bowl with a couple of his great-grandchildren, giving them pointers and inspiration in the sport. Ken enjoyed singing hymns and praying with his best friend, Don Kramer, fishing, and the Phillies. Most of all, Ken loved his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and his greatest wish is that everyone would come to know and love Him as well.
