Kenneth attended college at Questa College and Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, and Sacramento State in Sacramento.
Kenneth was a fireman for many years, worked at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers-BLM and for the past 20 years was a CalTrans employee.
On June 29, 1969, he married Kathleen Stilwell, and together they raised two beautiful daughters. He was proud of being Past Grand Knight of Knights of Columbus from July 1999 to June 2000 in district DD.
