Kenneth E. "Ken" Driggs

Driggs Kenneth "Ken" E. Driggs, age 79 of Sarasota, Florida, died February 15, 2014 after a courageous 15 year battle with cancer. Ken was born July 25, 1934 in Columbus, Ohio. He received his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from The Ohio State University and built one of the most successful practices in Columbus. Ken moved to Sarasota, Florida in 1979 and established yet another booming practice - some of his past patients from Columbus would even fly to Sarasota for his exceptional care. He was truly loved by all of his patients and everyone he crossed paths with. Survivors include sons, Christopher and Douglas; and daughter, Pamela; and grandchildren, Lauren and David, all of Sarasota. He will be greatly missed by his children who not only loved him as an amazing father but also as a wonderful friend. There will be no visitation or service. Ashes will be scattered at sea. In lieu of flowers or donations, he wished that everyone perform an act of kindness and consider becoming an organ donor.
