Kenneth L. Burch peacefully passed away surrounded by his family on Jan. 8, 2019, at 7:40 p.m., and into the arms of Jesus.

Ken was born on Aug. 25, 1950, to the late Kenneth Burch and Geraldine (Hurless) Akom who survives in Haviland.

On Aug. 9, 1996, he married the love of his life, Teresa J. (King) Burch, who cared for him up until he took his last breath.

Ken was an avid NASCAR fan always cheering on number 42 on Sundays, a collector of eagles, and could always be caught watching re-runs of westerns of TV. Most importantly, Ken loved being a dad, husband, and papa.

He is survived by his children, who he loved as his very own, Faith (Don) Coleman, Bobbi-Jo (James) Whitted, and Jake Gallimore, all of Van Wert; six grand kids, Jasmine and Kali Coleman, Gwen and Ali Davis, and Josce and Jacoby Gallimore; a brother, Melvin (Carol) Burch of Winter Haven, Florida; and a sister, Linda (Dan) Walker of Van Wert.

Ken was preceded in death by a baby girl, Cynthia, and siblings, Roger and Robin.

A private service will be held for close family and friends.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil. 4:13.
