On May 21, 1960, Kenneth married the love of his life, Charleen Stolp. They had two wonderful sons, Todd and Troy, who Kenneth was so very proud of. Kenneth and Charleen loved to go to their place in Hayward, WI where they enjoyed fishing. They went on many trips, and especially loved Branson, MO. He was a fan of NASCAR, watching Packer games, and going out West.
Kenneth is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Charleen; his son, Troy Sisley; his grandchildren: Jonathan Sisley and Jennifer Sisley; and special friend, Randy Woodard. In addition to his parents, Kenneth is preceded in death by his son, Todd Sisley, and his daughter-in-law, Tina (Weier) Sisley.
The family would like to express their heartfelt gratitude to the staffs of Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services and Edenbrook of Wisconsin Rapids, for all of their love, compassion and support shown to Kenneth.
