A 90th birthday celebration was hosted for Ken Money on Sept. 23, 2013, at the Cascade Gardens in Yakima, Wash. Ken was pleased so many new and old friends and family members from around the region were able to join him for an afternoon of laughter, reminiscing and delicious homemade ice cream.
Ken was born in North Dakota but spent the majority of his life in Yakima, where he married Thelma Worthington and raised three children: Larry, Shirley and Karen. He has been a member of the Yakima Church, since he was young and is a founding member of the Yakima Fairview Church where he has held numerous offices. Ken proudly maintains many friendships from his years as a youth and Pathfinder leader and even now accepts many requests to preach in surrounding churches as needed.
Ken continues to enjoy life, including many interests of his youth: gardening, camping at the beach, following sports and taking short trips with friends on his dirt bike. Although Ken and his wife, Joan, reside in Yakima, they frequently travel around the Northwest visiting friends and family, including his children who live in western Washington.
