Ken was born Aug. 29, 1964, to the late Stanley and Rosemary (Yanta) Rodeski at St. Gabriel’s Hospital in Little Falls. Ken lived in Little Falls the majority of his life with the exception of a few years in Colorado. Ken went to school in Little Falls and graduated high school from there. He was self-employed and had his own business, it was called Ken’s Tree Service and he dabbled in the wood and metal business as well. Ken had a very special love for his only son, K.J. (Kenneth James) and for his family, which meant the world to him,. His motto when it came to family get togethers was, “the more the merrier”; everyone was welcome. Ken loved nothing more than barbequing, holidays and his annual huge Easter egg hunt with family and friends. Ken was an avid hunter and fisherman, he really enjoyed Mille Lacs Lake among the many he sported. He had a passion for skiing, both water and snow, he even took a trip to Switzerland. His time spent with go-carts was something that he and his son, K.J. treasured working with together. Ken also spent time with our dad working with the Boy Scouts, he got great satisfaction from this.
