Kenneth Lawrence Hurlbut
(March 11, 1928 - November 2, 2012)

Kenneth Lawrence Hurlbut, 84 year old Etna resident, passed away on Friday, November 2, 2012 at Shasta View Nursing Center in Weed following a long illness.
Ken was born March 11, 1928 in Visalia to Edwin and Bernadine Hurlbut, the oldest of five children. In addition to Visalia, he grew up in Redding and Grass Valley, graduating from Grass Valley High School. On September 1, 1945, Ken was married to Donna Sherrill. Ken started his career in the grocery business in 1947, working in Grass Valley and later in Sacramento and Yuba City for Lucky Stores. In 1968, Ken bought Marconi's Market in Etna, changing the name to Ken's Market, which he ran until closing the store in 1990. Ken served on the Etna city council and was mayor for two terms in the 1980's.

Ken and Donna enjoyed traveling, especially back and forth to Arizona after closing the grocery store. In 1999, they sold their home and moved to Yuma, Arizona. They spent their 67th wedding anniversary this past September, moving back to the mountains that Ken enjoyed. In addition to traveling, Ken enjoyed reading and, at one time, was a member of the Etna Lions Club.

In addition to Donna, of Etna, Ken is survived by two sons, Bruce and his wife, Lorrayne, of Etna and Brian and his wife, Linda, of Herald; a brother and his wife, Wesley and Joan of Citrus Heights; four granddaughters, Elizabeth Lee (Brian) of Fort Jones, Carol Hirsche (Scott) of Payson, Utah, Sarah Matson (David) of Carmichael, California and Carrie Saunders (Benjamin) of Logan, Utah; 4 great-grandchildren Joshua, Nathanial and Grace Lee and Geddy Hirshe.

A Memorial graveside service will be held on November 10, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. in the Etna Cemetery in Etna. Friends are invited to join the family for visiting and refreshments at the LDS Church after the services. Memorial contributions may be made to Madrone Hospice, 255 Collier Circle, Yreka, CA 96097.
