Kenneth, of Portland, passed away under hospice care on Monday. He was a Jackson native, born to Harley and Esther (MacIntire) Erwin.

After graduating from Jackson High School in 1948, he attended Jackson Junior College, served in the US Coast Guard during the Korean War, and returned to complete a Master's Degree from Michigan State University.

He enjoyed a long successful career with the State of Michigan, Department of Transportation, but his lifelong passion was for antiques. Some of his best moments were spent traveling the United States buying and selling historic treasures, swapping stories with fellow enthusiast, or simply sharing his knowledge of a particular piece from his antique booth.

Ken is survived by brother, Louis Erwin, Sister-in-law, Alice Erwin: Nieces; Belinda (Keith) Abbott, Keiko (Mark) Greca, Jeanette (Troy) Lamphere and Nancy (Kirk) McCardell: and dearest friends Bill and Jean Spencer.

He was preceded in death by his parents: Brother Clyde Erwin, and two infant brothers, and a niece Susan Erwin.
