Born March 8, 1946, in Rotan, Texas to Charles and Gloria Ferguson,
Kenneth graduated from McCaulley high school in 1964, and West Texas State
University in 1968. He married Helen Sue Moore of Hamlin in May of 1969,
and worked for many years with the Soil Conservation Service in Friona,
Muleshoe, and Paducah, moving here in 1977. He later worked as a Cable TV

the coffee shop, visiting with other coffee drinkers in the afternoon.

over 40 years. Kenneth, a kindhearted and gentle man, was sole caretaker
for his ailing wife for a number of years until his death.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his brother Don Ferguson, and an
infant son, Mitchell Ferguson.
He is survived by his wife, Helen; two sons: Chris Ferguson and wife
Destiny; and Steven Ferguson and wife Stephanie, all of Paducah; six
grandchildren, Zachary Wilson of Abilene, Kaitlyn and Brayden Ferguson,
