Kenneth Ralph Ahrens, 93 years young, known as Poppy to those who loved him the most, was called home to heaven on Friday, January 5th. He was preceded on his journey by his son, Jeffrey Scott Ahrens, and he leaves behind innumerable friends and family who will long remember his positive outlook and a one of a kind spirit, among them are his wife of 67 years, Lois Rita Ahrens; his daughter Christine Ahrens and her husband Richard Poole; his son Ken J. Ahrens and his wife Kay; his daughter-in-law Donna Ahrens; six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. Also left to cherish Ken's memory, are his sister Alice Ahrens Dykstra, her husband Ralph, of St. Anne, IL and his brother Carl William Ahrens and his life partner, Barbara Johnson both of Houston, Texas.

In lieu of sending flowers, the family invites you to honor Poppy's life by taking a walk in the sunshine, sharing a joke with a friend or making a hole-in-one! Poppy loved living - he loved life. He taught us to live life to the fullest, always give it our best, and be kind to others. Poppy taught us all that LOVE is really what it's all about. His memory will endure in our hearts forever, and we are thankful he rests in peace with our Lord.

Join the family members for visitation at 9:00am, with funeral services at 10:00am at Memorial Oaks Funeral Home, 13001 Katy Freeway on Friday, January 12th.
