Kenneth Maslen, 94, passed away peacefully Thursday July 7th, at his home in Camino, CA, with his family at his side.
Ken was born April 18, 1928, in San Rafael, CA, to Kenneth and Emma (Ann) Maslen. After graduating high school in 1946, Ken enlisted in the U.S. Navy. He served in the Korean War on the naval destroyer the USS Leonard F. Mason DD852.
In 1952, Ken was honorably discharged from the U.S. Navy, and went on to meet his future wife, Alice Larson. On June 14, 1958, the two were married in Redwood City, CA. In the years to come, Ken and Alice would welcome two boys; Tyson in November of 1959 and Timothy in December of 1962.
Ken worked as an appliance technician for Sears for 27 years and retired in 1990. He loved spending his free time outdoors, whether that was skiing, golfing, fishing, or hiking. He was always up for an adventure and a good laugh.
