Kenneth E. Kenoyer, of Vader, WA, passed away on Sunday January 6, 2019 at the age of 74. Ken was born in Dayton WA and raised by his father Jess Kenoyer and step mother Mary Kenoyer, in Bellingham, WA. He was a hard worker at many trades but best known for his pottery and woodcarving as a true professional artist. He married Debbie LaRiva in 1991 and became a father of 2 girls, Felicia (13) and Erma (8). He loved to travel and was fortunate this last spring to be able to go on a cruise to Alaska with his wife and brothers. His favorite hobby was playing poker and was quite good. His love for animals was beyond reproach he always had a dog at his side. It had been said that he loved animals more than people. He was a fantastic cook and could put up a 5 course Thanksgiving dinner and not have a dirty dish when it was done – now that is talent. Ken is survived by his wife Debbie Kenoyer, daughter Erma LaRiva of Bellevue, WA. and 2 grandsons Xavier and Miles:, daughter Felicia Miller, son-in-law John Miller of Orting, WA, grandsons Victor Mendoza, Johnny Miller and Justin Miller: granddaughter Rachel Mendoza: daughter Peggy Mead of Lake Stevens, WA., granddaughters Kayla, spouse Justin, Harphams and Cassy Mead. Kens brothers; Jeff Kenoyer, Chet Kenoyer and families are lifelong residents of Bellingham, WA. The family is grateful for the condolences. In lieu of flowers, Ken would appreciate any donations to go to your local animal shelter.
