Slick, Kenneth Hamilton

Kenneth Hamilton Slick, 88 years old, a beloved husband and father, was called home to his Lord on May 27, 2016. Kenneth was born in Taneytown, Maryland on February 14, 1928 to Charles and Anne Slick and was the third of seven children. Kenneth was a veteran of World War II, serving in the US Army for 3 years. He met the love of his life, Ruth Elaine Papenfuhs in Montana and a unique love story began, spanning over 66 blessed years. They were married on June 22, 1951 and ultimately settled in the Southwest, where he enjoyed the beautiful sunsets and mountains.

Kenneth enjoyed being an "18-wheeler" for 47 years until he retired in 1993 from Yellow Freight System. He belonged to Teamsters local #492. Over his driving career he accumulated over 3 million miles accident-free, an exceptional accomplishment, one his family was so proud of him for.

He was preceded in death by his parents, six brothers and one sister.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Ruth; daughter, Janine Slick of Dadeville, AL; son, Steven Slick (Merri) of Bonaire, GA; daughter, Barbara Bonnet (Gabriel) of Reno, NV; and son, John Slick of Atlanta, GA; four grandchildren, Megan Faucher (Bill), Meridith Voshell (Ryan), Seth Slick and Sara Slick; and one great-granddaughter, Aubrey Lee; as well as several nieces and nephews.
