Ken was born in Plains, Montana and passed into eternity to be with the Lord Aug. 29, 2020, at age 85 in Spokane, Washington.

He grew up in Montana and joined the U.S. Air Force after graduating high school where he quickly moved up through the ranks to Tech Sergeant.

He met his wife Kay in Noxon, Montana and they were married Dec. 7, 1957. Ken proudly served his country traveling and being stationed all around the world, including South Korea and Vietnam, in a career spanning more than 21 years.

Retiring from the service, Ken began another career as a respiratory therapist, training at Spokane Community College, interning in Spokane and then working in small hospitals all over the western United States.

After more than 30 years, he retired again in Cedar City, Utah and then traveled with his wife in their motor home. Ken was an avid photographer of wildlife and scenery, collecting antique and modern cameras and computers as a hobby. He enjoyed card games with family and friends.

Ken and Kay settled back in Spokane Valley, Washington where they stayed until Ken’s passing.

He was preceded in death by his father Stanley and mother Edna Cummings, sister Mirtha (Walt) Ormand, daughter Julie (Michael) Duncil, and son Michael Cummings.

Ken is survived by his wife Kay, brother Doug (Neva) Cummings, sister Joyce (Dan) Goodrich, three sons, Randy, Brian, and Kenneth (Christine), and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews,

grand children, great grand children and many life long friends.

He will be sorely missed.

A private service was held in September at Pines Cemetery in Spokane Valley, Washington.
