AGE: 93 • Manchester

Kenneth Henry Vanderziel, 93, of Manchester, NJ, passed away on Tuesday December 20, 2016. Born in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Kenneth lived in Summit before moving to Manchester in 1984. Ken was a veteran of the US Marine Corp, honorably discharged as Corporal, and proudly served during WWII in the South Pacific. He was a member of the VFW Post 10061 in Lakehurst, NJ. Ken worked as Controller for Union Pacific Railroad and as Assistant Treasurer for Union Pacific Corp in New York City for 38 years and retired in 1978.

Mr. Vanderziel was also a long serving councilman for Manchester Township, for over 20 years. He joined the local government in 1990 as part of STOP (Stop Tax Oppression Promptly), the group that formed to overthrow a corrupt government in Manchester and help usher in a nonpartisan political system. Mr. Vanderziel, along with a team of experts from the state, then helped to reorganize Manchester's government back to financial stability.

Kenneth was the devoted husband of the late Mary Louise, who had passed in 2003. He is survived by his three daughters; Janice Iuliano of New Egypt, NJ, Mary Jean Kamenar of Colts Neck, NJ, and Marilyn Lombardi of Wharton, NJ, his sister Donna Larson-Moran of Phoenix, AZ and his seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
