They settled in McHenry, Illinois where he began his career in chiropractic, opening his Elm Street Chiropractic clinic practicing for 36 years.
Ken was compassionate and committed to helping his patients lead healthier and happier lives. Ken’s ability to be positive, extremely patient and responsive are the qualities that set him above and put his patients at ease and inspired the confidence one looks for in a health provider. He loved the practice of healing others naturally through chiropractic care and acupuncture.
Ken was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend to so many and truly will be missed. Ken loved his family, his friends and his patients. Ken loved his life.

Over the years Ken acquired many friends both personal and professional.
Ken’s love for life revolved around his family. His passion for life was watching his children grow and excel in their academics and activities whether it be dance, Special Olympics, baseball, horseback riding, basketball, golf, cheerleading or track and cross country. He loved every single minute of it. Such a proud dad!
Ken’s love for golf, but more importantly his golf buddies, whether it be golfing at the club in McHenry, Florida or Wisconsin, it was a part of his life he lived for. He forever treasured the friendships, laughs and bonds that grew from his favorite sport. A very special thank you to all of you that made those moments great.
