Richmond, VA - With grieving hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Kenneth Moschel Kaiser, 98, on Friday, December 8, 2017, at Beth Sholom Gardens in Richmond, VA.

Born in Jersey City, NJ, he was predeceased by his wife of 70 years, Margaret Garratt Kaiser, and his parents, Mildred Weber and Henry Louis Kaiser. He is survived by four daughters, Cathryn Kaiser of Mineral Point, WI; Diane Velkoff (Jeremy) of Elverson, PA; Nancy Heller (Daniel) of Richmond, VA; and Joanne Kaiser Gardner of Chapel Hill, NC; eight grandchildren, Adam May, Dana May Albright, Anna Velkoff Freeman, Zachary Velkoff, Erin Heller, Benjamin Heller, Lindsey Gardner Levinson, Shelby Gardner, and spouses; two great-grandchildren, Wesley and Samuel Freeman; and extended family in California and Texas.

Ken graduated from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ, with a degree in Journalism. He served in the United States Army 362nd Harbor Craft Unit during WWII. He retired in 1979 as an executive vice president with J.C. Penney Co., after 37 years employment and, as part of the corporate planning team, frequently traveled with Mr. Penney.

Devoted to his wife and family, Ken was an avid craftsman, gardener, and traveler. While living most of his life in New Jersey, he was a respected leader at the Cranford United Methodist Church and Island Heights United Methodist Church, and contributed countless hours to volunteering with the American Field Service exchange program and the Marriage Enrichment program.
