He began his education near his home at the District 29 one-room schoolhouse and later attended and graduated from Sutton High School. On December 5, 1948, Kenneth married Eileen Byrkit at Clay Center, Nebraska. He spent his working years farming with his father and later with his son Dave. Kenneth was a life-long member and elder of Hope Reformed Church. He had a passion for his Lord and the church, his family, teaching young people, music, writing, and farming. He will be remembered for the many ways he shared his love for music with others - singing for events, directing the church choir, and filling his day with song. He served as a 4-H leader and on the boards of the Eldorado Co-op and the Sutton Community Home. Kenneth is survived by his wife Eileen; sons David (Ann) of Saronville, NE, and Mark of Orange City, IA; daughter Nancy (Dave) Klauschie of Omaha; grandchildren Emily (Nick) Mouw, Nathan (Blaire) Kauk, Sarah Kauk, Nathan Poel, Daniel (Randa) Poel, David (Briana) Poel, Trevor Kauk, Dallas Klauschie and fiancé Joe Durick, and Lyndon Klauschie; great-grandchildren Austin and Chase Mouw, and Brynnleigh Kauk; and sister-in-law Lenora (Raymond) Kauk. He was preceded in death by his parents and step-mother Clara (Ehly-Kauk) Rauscher, brothers Raymond and Paul, granddaughter Joanna Kauk, and daughter-in-law JoEllen Kauk.
