Ken grew up a “farm boy” in Southern Oklahoma and after serving in the US Air Force, moved to the Tulsa, OK area with his parents and younger brother. It was at Shell Oil Company in Tulsa, that Ken met his soon to be wife, Verna. She too was from rural Oklahoma, around Northwest Arkansas. They married in a Southern Baptist Church in Tulsa in 1972 and just recently celebrated their Golden Wedding Anniversary. The Lord has blessed them with two adult sons, one daughter-in-law, and three beautiful granddaughters.
Ken came to faith in Jesus Christ in a revival and was baptized again (after having my first child-hood baptism) and became an active member and deacon in Arrow Heights Baptist Church of Broken Arrow. Their family moved to Broken Arrow in 1977 and Ken and Verna have been members of Grace Community Church since 2008. Together in 1991, they founded Graphic Resources, a print shop in Broken Arrow. Today, their younger son is President, and they work alongside him on a daily basis. Ken became a deacon in 2015. Ken enjoys using his gifts of service/helps in and around the church body and always tries to be a positive example and Godly influence for others to follow.
