Kenneth Howard Kasten entered fully into the presence of the Lord on December 30, 2022, after a lengthy illness. Ken was born on September 1, 1964 in Racine, WI to Beverley (Everett) Kasten and Howard Kasten.
Ken married the love of his life Judy (Senter) Kasten in 1993 and loved her children Nicholas (Lisa) Bunnell and Ashley (Jon Mathieu) Bunnell as his own. Ken and Judy loved travel and camping, especially at Jellystone Park in Caledonia, WI. Ken’s friendly face and willingness to help friends and strangers alike inspired all who knew him.
