Ken went to middle school in Eau Claire and graduated from Memorial High School. Ken attended District One Technical College and graduated with a degree in Marketing. Ken worked in the transportation industry, finishing out his career with Blackhorse Carriers. While working for Blackhorse Carriers, Ken was sent to different terminals and helped as needed.

He also had an incredibly unique way of answering the phone, with it being individualized for each person he spoke with. Ken was always full of energy and loved to stay busy.
