Ken leaves his brothers Jim Stowell and John Stowell and an extended family of nieces and nephews, brothers and sisters in law. Ken married the love of his life, Margaret (Margy) Hamilton on Christmas Eve 1960. Together they had 4 children, Mary Ellen and James Flaherty of Longmeadow, MA, Michael and Wendy Stowell of Andover, CT, Carolyn and Craig Thiel of South Glastonbury, CT and Hyannis, MA and Joanne and Todd Audyatis of East Sandwich, MA. He leaves nine cherished grandchildren Cade, Keating, Cody, Liam, Connor, Will, Nolan, Cassidy and Maggie.

Ken and Margy raised their children in Glastonbury, CT where he had a life-long career in sales. They later retired to Bluffton, SC and recently moved to the Cape to be closer to their beloved family.
