 COEYMANS HOLLOW – On January 24, 2019 Kenneth Edward Morse was welcomed into our loving Lord’s arms where his parents Lucien and Charlotte Morse and his brother Gerald were awaiting him.

Ken’s love of music, country of course, hunting and fishing were surpassed only by his love for family and friends. He is survived by his brother Ronald Morse, loving wife of 62 years Nancy (Carkner) Morse and three children Leslie (Jacqueline) Morse, Sherry (Michael) O’Brien and Lisa (Timothy) O’Brien.

He was adored by his grandchildren; Ryan (Jing) Morse, Stephanie (Ian) Cummings, Kristen (Elijah) Done, Eric O’Brien, Erin (Charlie) Thiele, Taylor O’Brien, Riley O’Brien and his great grandchildren; Sophie Morse, Thomas (Gabriel) Cummings, Lucas Cummings, Elsie and Emma Done and Haylee Thiele.

He and Mom visited us regularly, teaching us the immeasurable lesson of what it meant to love and be loved. Something we carry with us every day.

Many a summer day was spent with family and friends at the “Big and Little” lakes in Orwell Vermont where countless fish stories were told, even some about fish that didn’t get away.

Ken first picked up a guitar at age 10 and never put it down, playing until the end. Over the years he belonged to a number of bands, but he would be best remembered for playing with his cousin and close friend Raymond Jones sharing many cherished memories.

Ken served our nation during the Korean War belonging to Legion Post 1493, never forgetting those that served with him.

May God bless the “Leader of the Band”.

Viewing hours will be held, Monday, January 28th from 4-6 pm with a service immediately following at Babcock Funeral Home, 19 Pulver Avenue, Ravena, NY.
