Our beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, and great-grandfather, returned to our Heavenly Father on July 30, 2008 at CareSource Hospice in Holladay, surrounded by his family and loved ones.
Born July 25, 1914 in Cedar City, Utah, to Calvin and Vivian Pendleton. He married Virginia Sanders in the Salt Lake Temple on April 17, 1940. Ken served his first mission for the LDS church in New Zealand in 1936 and in 1982 he had the opportunity to serve a genealogical mission together with his sweetheart. Ken had five loves in his life. His family, the LDS church, genealogy, fishing, and golf, each one intertwined. Ken's love for the church gave him a lifetime opportunity for service. Keeping his family close, not just to him, but to each other. He held many positions in the church but his most important was that of his family. Ken found the Lord in everything that he did, from his service in the church to spending days talking, and teaching each member of his family how to fish, and golf, but most importantly how to love, and through this knowledge we know that we, as a family, will be together again forever.
