Andrew (Kathryn) and Paul (Lisa), as well as twelve grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. In addition, he is survived by his brother, Gene; and sisters, Antoinette Whitehead and Linda Nemeth. Ken is predeceased by his father Leon; his mother, Edna; his brother, Leon Jr.; and his sister, Patricia Wood.
