Kenneth "Ken" S. Gage, 75, of Aurora, CO, formerly of Anchorage, AK, passed away peacefully on January 7, 2018 at his home in the arms of his loving wife of 56 years, MaryAnn.
Proud Father of Debbie Dalton of San Angelo, TX, Ken (Darcy) Gage of Aurora, CO and Tammy (Craig) Meade of Aurora, CO. Papa of Samantha, Michael, Ashley, Cory and Savannah. Brother of Karen (Bill) Mueller of Downers Grove, IL. Also survived by his very best friend, Jim Spartz, of Anchorage, AK.
At the age of 21, Ken started his own wall covering business; K&K Decorating. 4 years later, with his wife and at the time 2 kids, they took the leap and left Illinois to start a new life in Alaska. That proved to become his real home. Ken worked on the beginning of the Alaska Pipeline for approximately 4 years. Completing their family, they welcomed their youngest child during that time.
K&K Decorating continued to flourish for 41 years. Ken loved the Alaskan life of fishing, hunting, clam digging, and of course making friends wherever he went. He will be remembered for his hard work, his smile, his laugh and his love of family.
No services will be held per Ken's request. Ken's friend, Jim, Spartz, will be taking a portion of Ken's ashes to all his favorite places in Alaska,
