He enjoyed working in the yard and tending to the vegetable garden. Cribbage and Sheephead were his favorite card games, and he participated in both bowling and dartball leagues. He loved listening to music, whether it was polkas, sacred organ music or concerts by his children and grandchildren.  He is survived by his wife Elsbeth, a son, Joel (Connie) Flunker, a daughter, Christine (John) Crofts; 5 grandchildren, Theodore, Elisabeth and Ruth Flunker and Benjamin and Alexander Crofts.  He is also survived by 2 sisters, Marcella Westphal, and Joyce Ponto, and other relatives and friends.  Kenneth was preceded in death by 2 brothers, Bernhardt and Ernest Flunker, and 2 sisters, Margaret Pomerening and Sarah Pankow.
