He was a cascade operator at United States Enrichment Corporation in Paducah for 27 years.
K.B. was an avid outdoorsman who could be found out on the lake catching crappie, bass, or catfish, or in the woods hunting.
He was a great cook who enjoyed cheering for his mighty Blackhawks, reading, and taking trips to the ocean. K.B. loved spending time with his family, especially his grandbabies, who fondly called him “Poppi”. His everyday presence will be missed.
