Kenneth J. Bores, age 78, better known as "Ken" left this earth peacefully on January 12, 2018, but his larger than life persona and trademark stubbornness will not be forgotten.

Ken was born April 23, 1939 in Cleveland, Ohio to Wanda and Kazmere Bores. He has resided in Cape Coral, Florida for the past 46 years.

Affectionately known as "Kenny" to his family and friends. He was a builder and master craftsman by trade, and owner of Level Construction. Ken loved his children, fishing, cooking and his customers.

Famously opinionated and short tempered, world renowned for his lack of patience not holding back his opinion and knack for telling it like it is.

Ken was generous to a fault, a teddy bear at heart and yet he sugar coated nothing.

Preceded by his mother and father, Wanda and Kazmere Bores, brother Donald Bores, son Douglas Bores and grandson Cody Strickland.

Ken is survived by his daughters Vicky Bores Luckfelt of Cape Coral FL, Priscilla B. Ratliff (Steve) of Asheboro, NC and son Kent Bores of Livingston, TN.

Grandchildren Kasey Miller, Marty Miller, Jonathan Bores, Ricky Bores, Samantha Ratliff and Sierra Bores. Great grandchildren Branson Bores, Marcus Miller and Brock Miller.

Brother Jack Bores (Donna) and special Aunt Jane Martin.

Ken touched many hears and loved many. He will be dearly missed.
