Ken was a gifted carpenter! If he wasn’t building something he was hunting something:-). I’m so sorry for your loss Weinke family and friends. ❤️ To you all!
Dad you taught me so much. You helped me build my first dog house all by my self. You cut the wood and told me where to put it. You were always patient with me and never got upset when you would have to cut another piece of wood because I was learning how to nail boards together and had destroyed the first dozen or so pieces. You let make mistakes that includes wrecking your car my senior year of high school, throwing rocks at the neighbor boy and busting his head open with one good throw. You showed me how to fix my mistakes and how to make a proper apology. You shared your love of horses, history, and art with me. Even when our views differed you made me feel it was ok to disagree with you. Of all the things you have taught me the one lesson I cherish the most is the lesson of love and how patient it is. You will forever be in my heart and in the lessons I teach my girls. I love you dad always and forever.
Kenny was one heck of a great guy and his memories will live on through his children and grandchildren whom he clearly loved dearly. Condolences to his family and all who loved this incredible man❤️
Uncle Kenny I love you so much.From being a tiny crying kid running next door to your house because my mom wouldn’t let me do what I wanted , to having outdoor experience after outdoor experience shared, which were always far from your ordinary walk in the park .Ever since I was a little girl my Dad and my Uncles have always been my hero’s. In my eyes nobody could ever be more cool than those 4. Our Grams and Grandpa were amazing.Grandpa died in 2008 , my Dad in 2009 , Uncle Ronny 2012, Grams 2018, and now Uncle Kenny.Only one left Uncle Todd it took near begging and a talking to from Grams to convince him to let me help with some of his projects.The last year or so he just kept at it it would take him all day maybe two to put a small piece of sheet rock up.He would measure and have to rest for 20 min, make his cuts, rest , get the ladder, rest another 20, carry the piece up the ladder , rest ,screw a couple screws to hold it up , then rest again. He taught me a lot, and every time he taught me something it was partnered with what not to do so I wouldn’t get hurt. I would say young Uncle Kenny and the things he taught me when I was little With his “as I say not as I do” young crazy Uncle Kenny teaching methods were quite memorable, to the things I learned from him as my oldest living uncle, sharing his life’s lessons he thought would be of value .When he told me my dad would be proud of me It mattered so much .Uncle Kenny you mattered so much I love you and thank you for sharing you . As long as stories are told of our loved ones that have passed on,as long as the lessons they taught are taught again, they live on, not until the very last word of them is uttered and their name never spoke again, do they truely die .Continue to share stories of all those you love so they may continue teach and mingle in our lives.
Raccoon hunting in the middle of the night......building a flatbed international pickup from a international travel all...camping for 3 months to hunt wild dogs.....how do you sum that up......I miss him......
We lived across the field from the Weinki boys all throughout our childhood. We shot bebe guns and and spent a lot of time down at the river with our dogs, trapping all sorts small animals. Once Ken trapped a skunk it didn’t turn out so well.
We also road bikes all over the place, out Lincoln Creek and up and over Cooks Hill. We also road horses some times.
I remember Kens first real woodworking project, it was a beautiful pool table he built in wood shop.
We never really got in trouble. I remember when Kens dad fixed up a Ford Cyclon for him with a 390 cu in V8 and a 4-speed, he went through a lot of tires in the short time he had it. His first car was a Ford Falcon with a six banger.
We all had a very neat childhood. It is nice to hear that Ken has ten grandchildren, grandchildren are a great blessing and lags your for man.
Best regards to Kens family,
Pat And Lois Greisen
