Ken and Joanne Maguire were married April 28, 1962 and were blessed with three sons; Bruce David, Miller, SD; Brian John (Jennifer), Parker, Co; and Bret Dallas (Kathy), Concord, MA.

He thrived on his lifelong career in the grocery business which culminated with ownership of Tucker's Super Valu in Miller, SD.

Following retirement in 2000 Ken and Jo enjoyed spending their winter months in Arizona and spending time with their children and grandchildren. Ken was an avid golfer and outdoorsman and in recent years enjoyed honing his skills on the guitar.
