He was preceded in death by his parents Everett and Marjorie Coberley and brother Everett "Jay" Coberley.

Ken fought a long and brave battle against his health problems and maintained a bright and cheerful disposition despite his personal suffering. He loved his family and was a kind and generous friend. Everyone that had the pleasure of knowing him, loved him. He enjoyed Blue Bell ice cream, making big breakfasts, living in the country, and grilling outside on the grill. He took pleasure in cooking for his family and getting the steak done "just right." Words cannot express how much we will miss this man.

The family would like to thank Pastor Lloyd Maddoux from First Assembly of God in Conroe and the staff at Memorial Hermann, Nexus and Park Manor hospitals for their support during the final months of Ken's life. T hose wishing to post tributes and memories to the family may do so at

I wanted a perfect ending. Now I've learned the hard way and some poems don't rhyme and some stories don't have clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what is going to happen next. Gilda Radner 1946-1989
