Kenneth A. Louks

Freeland, Michigan       

      Passed away February 10, 2019 at the age of 71.  Ken was a life-long resident of the Saginaw area.  After graduating from Buena Vista High School in 1965, he entered Western Michigan University and obtained a bachelor’s degree in sociology.  Ken served in the US Army from 1970-72 and was stationed in Stuttgart, West Germany.  Upon his honorable discharge, he was employed by the US Postal Service from 1972 to 2002, reaching the level of Mail Processing Manager at the Saginaw USPS facility. Ken had a strong Christian faith and was past member of Sheridan Avenue United Methodist Church, Auburn UMC, and presently was a member of Hopevale Church. Ken was a gifted keyboardist from his youth and throughout his life.  Ken was organist at Auburn UMC for many years, and also taught piano from his home.  Even after a stroke at age 60 rendered his left hand paralyzed, Ken still played his electronic keyboard, recording and sharing his music, which were often arrangements of favorite hymns.  Ken also played the dulcimer. Ken loved his Lord and his country and was proud of his service in the Army.  He enjoyed traveling, nature, and visiting relatives.  Ken’s favorite hobby was amateur radio.  Licensed in 1965 as WA8REI, he was very active on the air until his death.  Ken loved to operate his radio, using Morse code, from wilderness areas as well as from his home.  He made friends on the air all over the world.

 

     Ken was predeceased by his parents, Ferris and Donna Louks.  He is survived by his brothers David (Kathryn) Louks, Paul (Vicky) Louks, a dear aunt Elaine Fox, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

     Honoring Ken’s wishes, no funeral service is planned, but instead, a time for family and friends to reflect on God’s grace.  Burial will be in Great Lakes National Cemetery, Holly, Michigan.
