Ken was a veteran and served in the U.S. Army where he learned photography. Richard, a mutual friend, played matchmaker and introduced him to Ninette. After dating for one year, the couple married on April 8, 1982 in Virginia City, Nev. Ken worked as a commercial photographer for 35 years. He specialized in food photography with a business in Albuquerque, N.M. for eight years. His photography can still be seen in airports and Costco.
Ken was willing to go anywhere and had a steady business. He traveled to Saudi Arabia for a month, taking photos of construction projects. The Fleetwood Company hired him to take pictures of modular homes all over the United States. Ken created "Windows of Illusion," using his pictures of scenery and building illuminated windows to show them off. He sold his business at the perfect time, just before computers took over. Ken and Ninette traveled for fun to Bali, Hawaii, Mexico and Europe and drove their motorhome up and down the Baja Peninsula. In retirement, he created rusty metal garden art and sold it at street fairs. Ken loved giving advice and enjoyed telling stories.
