Born December 2, 1934, Kenneth Emil Senske died in hospice on December 14, 2022, at St. Luke’s Hospital in Duluth, MN.
Kenneth was a loving father, grandfather, and great papa to his extensive blossoming family tree. Kenneth was known for his gun smithing and wood working skills, he also loved working for the DNR and enjoying going on adventures with his sweetheart and wife Bonita, until God took her from him. Their love story was vibrant and adventurous, it blossomed liked Bonitas gardens, that flourish with gorgeous flowers. Kenneth and Bonita welcomed four glorious children, Kenneth Jr., Jeff, Tim, and Susan, being parents filled their hearts full of love and joy. As the family tree grew bigger, Kenneth loved when he could brag and boast about the ongoing great grandchildren that aged him like a bottle of fine wine. Receiving pictures and updates that he could share with others kept Kenneth’s heart warm. Kenneth also shared a love for his black labs, Carbons’ and Riley, that kept him company after Bonitas passing.
Kenneth was preceded in death by his loving wife Bonita, mother Hazel Harriet Senske, father Emil F. Senske, and son Kenneth Jr. He is survived by his sister Beverly J, his children Jeff, Tim and Susan, grandchildren, Darrel, Dustin, Russell, Kathleen, Sean, Steve, Amanda, Luke, Jayce, and Justine. He is also survived by many great grandchildren whom he cherished! “They say a great soul serves everyone all the time. A great soul never dies. It brings us together again and again.” Thank you for bringing life to the Senske Family tree and building such a strong foundation built on love, adventures and of course guns!
