Obituary

Kenneth Lowell Naser was born February 19, 1928 at home in Hanson County, SD and passed away January 25, 2016, at the Salem Colonial Manor in Salem, SD. He joins his parents and brother in Heaven.

Growing up, Kenny enjoyed helping his Dad and working on the ranch with his five brothers and two sisters. He and his loving wife, Cleo, were married on August 25, 1972. Their deep and abiding love sustained them in marriage for forty-four years, five months, until Ken passed into eternity. He was a Veteran of the United States Army, having honorably served in the Korean War. In retirement, he was an active, lifetime member of the American Legion and the VFW.

In August 1973, one year after their marriage, Kenny and Cleo moved to Fulton, SD where he spent his time repairing and tinkering around his home while working various jobs in Mitchell. He was a true “Jack of all Trades” and could do just about anything. From construction to plumbing to electric work or carpentry, he tackled each skill with creative and innovative acumen.

Kenny’s boundless creative abilities were only exceeded by the incredible love he showed his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Throughout their many happy years together, he and Cleo had numerous animals, including a cow, chickens, and goats. He delighted in showing his grandchildren all of their animals and especially watching the young ones chase the goats. Family gatherings brought him great joy. He adored bringing all of the grandkids together and taking them on rides on the trailer, snowmobile, three-wheelers, tractors, and mowers. Kenny’s love for family saw no limits. In 1990, at the age of 62, he and Cleo sought and gained custody of two of theirgranddaughters, Lucy and Tama, raising them in their own home.

Kenny spent his retirement time working on projects in the garage, remodeling his home, and taking care of the yard. He was a true gentleman, always loving and kind. He enjoyed country music, horses, and anything cowboy. He was very forgiving and continued to take pride in his family up until the day he went to Heaven. He is survived by his wife Cleo, his five children: Greg Summers (Leanne), Sherry Hines (Tim), Carol Stainbrook (James), Wayne Ferrin (Robin), and Chuck Ferrin (Irma), 14 grandchildren, and 26 great-grandchildren.
