One of joys was to have taught at the Grafton State School for over 10 years. He loved his horses and showing them with friends. Ken enjoyed so many people and things in his life. Whether showing horses, babysitting grandkids, having parties in AZ, spending time with family or talking Minnesota sports, he lightened up life around him.
