Kenneth was born June 23, 1948 in Glendive, Montana to John and Rosalie (Lochmann) Buxbaum. He married Geraldine K. Call in May of 1974.
He was employed as a farm hand throughout his life. Ken also did mechanic work on the side and did over-the-road piggyback truck driving. Kenneth worked with his hands and was very crafty. He liked to stay busy tinkering on different projects and fixing things at home or on the farms. Kenneth was a talented guitar player as well.
He was strong-willed, yet, had a goofy side. Kenneth enjoyed telling jokes especially when with his brothers.
