He attended the University of Wisconsin, Madison, in 1957 where he met his wife, Sandy. He returned to China Lake in 1958 and in 1960, he and Sandy were married.

He took a brief hiatus from China Lake and returned to Madison where he graduated in 1966 with a B.S. in Electrical Engineering. In 1970, Ken moved to Canoga Park and worked at Litton Guidance and Control Systems Division in Woodland Hills as an Inertial Guidance Systems Engineer until his retirement in 1999.

In 1988, he moved to Ventura where he enjoyed the beach, the weather and his grandchildren. He was a long time supporter of the New West Symphony, Camerata Pacifica and the Rubicon Theatre.
