Kenneth was born August 7, 1935, in Pittsburg, to Willie Rummel and Verna Irene Wood Hicks joining his older sister Geneva in Pittsburg.  After graduating high school and marrying the love of his life, Pat, they set out to Austin to continue his education at the University of Texas Engineering School.  

In the journey that followed, Ken and Pat raised four children, Thea Lynn, Angela Kay, Morris Kenneth and Matthew Porter.  They lived in Venezuela, California, New Orleans, London, Bahrain and Holland.

Back home in Texas in 1980, with all the children gone, or soon to be gone, Ken purchased a glass company while Pat pursued her real estate career.   They enjoyed living on Lake Houston.

In 2001, Pat and Ken retired to Waterwood on Lake Livingston where they purchased a beautiful home on the lake and Ken spent many hours in his workshop while Pat played golf.  They enjoyed many visits from children and grandchildren, watersports in the lake and a backyard swimming pool.

Ken will be greatly missed by his four children, ten grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren as well as friends and neighbors in Waterwood.
