Ken worked as a farmer for most of his life. He milked dairy cattle for over thirty years, while working for Skyline Dairy at the Martz Farm in Ringgold. Milking cows and tending to the farm gave him great satisfaction and although he worked hard, he found peace and solace in his job.

Ken liked to play in the pool league at Midway Inn, and he enjoyed watching the Steelers play. He also enjoyed going for walks.
