Obituary for Kenneth L. Ruhn
Ken Ruhn, 91, formerly of Frederic, WI died peacefully July 1, 2012, at Regions Hospital with family at his side.
He was born April, 7, 1921 to Fred and Grace Ruhn. He married the love of his life, Angie on March 25, 1950. Throughout his life he was a dedicated family man and employee. In his free time he loved to hunt, fish, snowmobile, travel, play cards, read, cut wood, tinker in his garage, care for stray dogs and cats, and visit with family and friends. Some of the great joys later in his life were seeing his Model "T" drive away from the church when his granddaughter, Tracy got married and when his great-granddaughter, Lindsay would come to visit with Angie and himself. He was a man that never asked for any help, but was always there to help anyone in need. In the end, he was ready to join his family in Heaven.
He was preceded in death by his parents; siblings, Virginia, Dorothy, Maxine, Vincent, Edwin, and Sybil; son, Leyton; daughter, Janice; granddaughter, Jeanmarie; and great-granddaughter, Heather.
He is survived by his wife, Angie; sister, Audrey; sons, Ken (Lois), Gerry (Gail), and Ron (Carol); 11 grandchildren; over 20 great- and great-great-grandchildren; and 16 nieces and nephews.
A memorial service was held July 6 with Pastor Bob De Young officiating at the Rowe Funeral Home in Frederic. Burial was in the Maple Grove Cemetery right next to son, Leyton. Lunch and fellowship followed in the St. Dominics Hall.
