Kenneth Lee Stucky, 81, of Pandora died at 7:35 pm July 16, 2011 at his residence. He was born March 12, 1930 in Van Nuys, CA to Kenneth E. and Alice M. Shank Stucky. The family was part of the Van Nuys Missionary Church from Ken's earliest days. On January 25, 1952 he married Betty Wolmerstett and she survives. Ken was ordained new years eve 1952 at Calvary Missionary Church where he pastored for seven years. After pastoring Duarte Missionary Church, planting a church in San Jose and pastoring the Granada Hills Community Church he and his family moved to Pandora where he pastored the Pandora Missionary Church for seven years. The next five years he was Superintendent of the East Central District of the Missionary Church. He was then asked to move to the denominational headquarters in Ft. Wayne, IN where he spent the last 14 years of full time ministry. In his retirement his greatest joy has come from pastoring a seasonal church known as Palm Creek Golf and RV Chapel, which meets from November 1st to mid April. Preaching to upwards of 350 people each Sunday who come from 20 or more denominations was a challenge and blessing. Ken enjoyed family vacations, traveling in their motor home, gardening and yard work, playing games, telling jokes and playing practical jokes. He enjoyed classic cars, especially his model T Ford. Survivors also include three daughters, Dotty (Jim) Leightner, Sherry (Dave) Krohn, Sue (Scott) Lehman all of Pandora, seven grandchildren, six great grandchildren and a brother, Darrel (Elizabeth) Stucky of Murrieta, CA. He was preceded in death by two grandchildren and brother, Kerry Stucky. Funeral services will begin at 10:30 am Wednesday at the Pandora Missionary Church. Revs. Sam Ochstein, Dale Linebaugh, Bob Ransom and Bill Hossler will officiate. Burial will be in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery, Pandora. Visitation will be at the church from Monday 6-8 pm, Tuesday 2-4 and 6-8 pm and one hour prior to the service. Memorial contributions may be made to US Missionary Church Planting, PO Box 9127, Ft.
