Ken Grossman, 60, Wheatland, ND died unexpectedly at his home with his wife and grandson by his side.
Ken was born May 21, 1950 in Harvey, ND to Paul and Veronica Grossman. He grew up in the Fargo-West Fargo area and earned his GED from West Fargo High School. Ken entered the Army in 1969 and served his country in the Vietnam War where he was honored with the Silver Star, Purple Heart, and Bronze Medal.
Ken married his high school sweetheart, Eileen, on October 24, 1970 in West Fargo. They recently celebrated their 40th anniversary. They spent the last 28 years living in the Wheatland, ND area where he could raise horses and bow hunt in his backyard.
Ken was a gifted musician and could play any instrument that was set in front of him. He played in area bands from the time he was a teenager. He worked 20 years for the Scott Moeller Co until his love of horses and the people who owned them got him pulling his tack trailer to rodeos and selling saddles and tack. His interest in finding a good bargain got him into the auctioneering business. He was also working part-time as a security guard.
Ken was a member of St. Leo’s Catholic Church in Casselton, ND.
Ken cherished the time he spent with his wife, kids and grandchildren and always looked forward to big family get togethers. They were planning a family trip to Disney World. Anyone who came to know Ken should know that he held a special place in his heart for you.
