He was greeted by his parents, Paul and Sarah (Hoffman) Bowersox.
Kenny was born May 5, 1942, in White Springs. On June 11, 1971, he married his soul mate the former Judith "Judy" Boop who survives. Together they celebrated 49 beautiful years. His moving to Heaven will not break the cord of the love they promised in their vows.

In April of 1970, he became an amazing and loving father to his daughter, Tancy. She will forever cherish the bond they shared. In 1990, he welcomed a son-in-law, James Stahl. They would spend many years deciding which was better, Chevy or Ford. And in 1993, he earned the prestigious title of Pappy to his grandson Kyle. Ken had a permanent smile when his grandson was near. They shared a "you hung the moon connection".
In early years, he spent time traveling to pull tractors with his #3 cub cadet. He and his family loved camping and the time spent with friends on the weekends.
Kenny was active in woodworking and made many special pieces that will be cherished by his family. He was an avid bowler and bowled in many area leagues. Kenny shared the love of the sport with his grandson, Kyle. Together they participated in leagues and tournaments. Ken and Judy never missed a match to cheer him on in his high school bowling career. He also loved attending public sales with his brother, Gene.
