Kenneth was born August 23, 1918 in Sanger, ND to John C. and Ethel (Myers) Miller. On July 27, 1938 he married Rose Matz in Bismarck. They made their home in Oliver County where Kenneth was a farm laborer for many years. In 1963 they moved to Mandan where Kenneth worked for Mandan Parks, maintaining the golf course. He was known to say he would never chase that little white ball around, but after time, golf became one of his favorite hobbies. Kenneth retired in 1980. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing. Moving to the Care Center in 2008, Kenneth enjoyed his many visitors and the friends who would take him to church. Many Sunday’s his room was full of friends and family who stopped by for a visit. A kind man and loveable grandpa who always took time for those he loved, Kenneth will always be remembered.
