Kenneth Eaton Obituary

November 6, 1922 - September 30, 2015

Kenneth Eaton died peacefully on September 30, 2015 at the age of 92. Ken lost his battle with Dementia and blindness, which took his mobility and strength, but not his spirit or his love of his family. Ken was born in Whittier, CA and lived in San Jose where he and his partner, Frank Licha, owned and operated Liton Construction Company until his retirement in 1983.

He was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers; a sister and wife Dorothy with whom he had three children, Gary (Kathy) of Valley Springs, Stacey (Kent) Gregersen of El Dorado Hills, and Randy Eaton of Morro Bay.

He moved to Oregon House where he met and married Ann Orsak. Ann's children, Trenna (Joe) Lutz of San Jose, Pat (Herb) Fox of Castro Valley, and Brian Hoyt (Suzanne) of Clear Lake became an integral part of the family. While in Oregon House, he was on the Water District Board, Volunteer Fire Board and developed property. He was a charter member of the Yuba Feather Lions Club, which was formed in 1981. He was president of his Club, responsible for the Rodeo Fund, and was Zone Chairman, Region Chairman and in 1986 became District 4-CL Governor. Ken and Ann managed the District Camp for Diabetic children, and took numerous trips to Mexico with eyeglasses and medical supplies to fellow Lions for distribution. They moved to Valley Springs in 2002 to be closer to family. His wife, Ann; his three children; Ann's three children; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren, survive Ken.

A celebration of life will be held October 24, 2015 at 11:00 a.m. at the Methodist Church in Valley Springs. In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to City of Hope or to the Lions Eye Foundation of California and Nevada.
