He had a successful career in the field of information technology and eventually owned his own company. In his free time, Ken enjoyed being an active member of the Rotary Club, volunteering, playing golf and paddle tennis, and supporting both the Cincinnati Reds and FC Cincinnati. He cherished the time spent having dinners out with friends and family and watching his granddaughters’ dance recitals and swim meets.
