THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Ken D. Stoneburner
Ken D. Stoneburner of Marinette passed away Thursday, July 4 at his home.
Born in 1946, he was an honest and decent man who dearly loved his three boys.
He never did a dishonest deed and treated everyone as an equal. He despised war, cruelty to people and animals and was of the Buddhist persuasion. His passions were music, books, wood working and gardening. According to his Buddhist philosophies, he hopes to reconnect in spirit with those he loved. This is his final farewell to those who touched, influenced and made his life happy.
He is survived by sons, Jesse, Cody and Tyler; his mother, Rose F. Stoneburner; one granddaughter and friends, Harry Ellery, Gerry Cain, Marcel Chartre and Eileen Coffey.
He was preceded in death by his good friend and partner, strictly platonic, Franny Chartre.
He was cremated and his ashes set free over the Grand Canyon, which he thought was the most holy and spiritual place on earth and his favorite spot. Hansen-Onion-Martell Funeral Home, Marinette assisted the family.
