Kenneth Evans LeBaron, 89, of Wayland and Sudbury, died peacefully on Monday, August 12, 2013 at the Wayside Hospice in Wayland, Massachusetts. Ken was an artist and musician. In 1983, he began to study sculpture at DeCordova Museum under Nat Burwash and Bart Uchida. Using the method of direct carving in wood and stone, he used the natural grain of the material to create abstractions of flight and spirit. He was an exhibiting member of the New England Sculpture Association. Born in Framingham, Massachusetts on December 28, 1923, Ken was the son of Dorothy Lamson and Paul B. LeBaron. He served in the United States Army as a Dental Officer in Bremerhaven, Germany from 1953 to 1955, at which time he was honorably discharged as a Captain. Ken graduated from Tilton School in New Hampshire, attended Harvard College and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1948. Ken had a 35-year career in dentistry, retiring in 1983.

Ken was predeceased by his brother Francis of Yarmouthport, Massachusetts. Ken enjoyed playing violin throughout his life. He played in the Wellesley Symphony Orchestra, Wayland High School musicals and in a string quartet at the First Parish Church of Wayland, Massachusetts.

Ken was a nature lover as well as a birder, and supported many conservation organizations. A memorial service will be held at a later date at the First Parish Church in Wayland, Massachusettsnh.
