November 22, 2015 at age 94 years. Predeceased by his wife Gloria in 2003. Survived by daughters; Victoria (Thomas) Vogt of VA, Deborah (Fay) Caskey of Bristol, and Peggi (Scott) Harris of Honeoye. 7 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, and several nieces & nephews.

Ken was born on July 26th, 1921 in Lima NY. His parents were farmers and he unloaded his first load of wheat when he was 5 years old and milked his first cow when he was seven. He went to a one room school house and had to walk about 5 miles to go to school. He and his brother had to milk the cows and feed the horses before they went to school. He really liked going to school but he missed 6 weeks in the Fall to get the crops in and 3 weeks in the Spring to plant them. In 1929, bread was 5 cents a loaf but times were very hard. Every year his Dad would give the man who owned the only grocery store in Hemlock 2 or 3 cows to pay for the groceries.

Ken married Gloria Sammis on July 28, 1944 and moved to Long Island which was where Gloria was raised. They were married for 59 years and had three daughters.

He worked until he was 84 years old. He worked as a millwright at Kodak and several other companies. His favorite hobbies were gardening, fishing, hunting and fixing anything in sight. Ken Werder was hard working, kind, well-loved and will be missed by many.

Burial Lakeview Cemetery, Honeoye. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to the Richmond Fire Dept., PO Box 469, Honeoye, NY 14471.
