Kenneth worked at Northern States Power for 25 years as well as managed the family farm and later Ken’s Greenhouse near St. Stephen.

Ken enjoyed hunting and fishing, and deeply loved old country western and polka music. He was a jokester from a young age, which carried on throughout his 77 years.

Ken is survived by his wife Evie; son Kurt, Granddaughter Leah (Charles) Claflin; siblings, Joanne (Dale) Lackore, Donna (Ron) Schlichting, and Richard (Linda) Nothnagel.

He is preceded in death by his parents; daughter, Dawn Nothnagel in 1993; and in-laws Anton and Louise Maile.

Please accept my condolences. It is a very sad emotional time when our love ones sleep in death. I hope you find comfort in the words found in John 5:28-29 and look forward to the day where we can hug our loved ones again. This is a promise from the God that does not lie and that promises to wipe all tears of pain Revelation 21:3-4.
