He served our country in the US Army for 6 months and in the reserves for 6 years. Kenneth worked his way up to Bank President and CEO for Farmers State Bank (later becoming First Bank and Trust) and finished his career as President at Prosperity Bank. Kenneth’s favorite hobby was ranching. He ran a small herd of cattle for most all his adult life, and even operated a show pig farrowing operation for a while. He was a lifelong contributor to the improvement of the community and its citizens and was known to have a deep love and compassion for the people of the Cleveland area. Through the years he served in the Kiwanis Club, and Rotary Club. He served many years on the Cleveland Livestock Show and Dairy Day board, with 2 terms as President. He later served on the Liberty County Appraisal Board. He was a member of First United Methodist Church in Cleveland where he and Mary Ann enjoyed singing in the choir for decades. He was a great family man and enjoyed all the special moments he had with all of them. He will be greatly missed by his family and the Cleveland community.
