Kenneth A. Schmall was born on September 20, 1942. He passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, at age 75.

Ken was born to Alfred and Florence Schmall in Fresno, CA. He graduated from Fowler High School in 1961, then attended Fresno State College. Ken met the love of his life, Kathy Metzler, and became her dreamy husband in 1964.

Ken and Kathy built their lives around their love of family, friends, trucking, and farming. He was involved and supported many organizations and had many friends. No one was a stranger to Ken. His bright blue eyes would twinkle when he reminisced about anything farming, engines, and tractors. If you knew Ken, he was a collector of all things rusty.

Our beloved Ken was preceded in death by his father Alfred.

He is survived by his mother Florence; brothers, Raymond and Robert; the love of his life Kathy; children, Floyd and wife Ginger, Debbie Pilegard and husband Tim; grandchildren, Timothy, Sara, and Michael Pilegard; as well as many loving family members.
