A perfectionist, Ken was very detail-oriented in any project he worked on, whether it was working on cars or a remodeling project. Ken appreciated the outdoors, riding his John Deere lawn tractor, gardening, and fishing. A fan of the Browns and Buckeyes, he liked watching football and Fox News.
He enjoyed drag racing and working on projects in the garage with his family. Ken's extended family was very important to him. He "thought the world" of all of them, and valued their time spent together.
