Obituary for Kenneth G. Alden
Kenneth Gene Alden passed away on April 3, 2012 at the age of 84 surrounded by his family at his son’s home in Frederic, Wisconsin. Ken was born October 24, 1927 in Frederic. He met Kathy Remiger and was married on June 14, 1958.
He is survived by his loving wife Kathy, son Jeff (Jill) and grandsons Tyler, Logan and Dawson of Frederic, Aunt Kathleen and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Ken is preceded in death by his father and mother, Clarence and Grace Alden, his brother Lesley (Charmaine) Alden, sisters Darlene (Reno) Petersen and Dorothy (Millard) Watts.
Ken served his country as a Corporal in the Army during the Korean War. While in the Reserves he worked for the Luck Telephone Company. Also, he was employed by The Pipeline in the South and West. Ken was a gentle, down to earth man. His strong work ethic was an example to his family and the community. Ken loved traveling with his wife Kathy and together they enjoyed area restaurants, casinos, church suppers and attending fund-raisers to support the community. He was a true outdoorsman who loved to deer hunt and was happiest when spending time in the woods, especially with his grandsons nearby. Ken was a dedicated farmer and lived on the “home farm” for 74 of his 84 years. All will miss him.
