Kenneth Roland Waco Obituary
June 2, 1966 - January 14, 2016 Kenneth Roland Waco, 49, son of Virginia "Ginny" Waco and the late Roland Peter Waco, passed away in Los Angeles, on January 14, 2016. He was born at Saint John's Hospital in Santa Monica, on June 2, 1966, along with his twin brother Richard. He lived most of his life in Pacific Palisades. Ken attended Corpus Christi School and Parish, and Saint Monica's High School, ultimately graduating from Palisades High School. He then graduated from Sound Master Recording Engineer Schools. Ken worked as a sound engineer. In addition, his work as a personal fitness trainer made for an easy transition to professional actor and stuntman. Ken was at home in the California mountains, enjoying hiking and the beauty nature has to offer. He especially had a bond and love for wolves. His wonderful art reflected that love, in several mediums, as well as his appreciation for a wide array of animals and reptiles. As an accomplished musician, he excelled on the piano, keyboard, and guitar. Ken often wrote his own music along with entire compositions. Besides his mother, Ken is survived by his twin Richard, sister Michelle (Mark O'Donnell), brother Robert (Michelle Auxier Waco), niece Arielle, nephew Brendan, and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. He was also beloved by a host of longtime friends. Ken will be remembered for his loving nature, kind and generous heart, and willingness to help others, especially homeless people.
