Kenneth Leroy English, 85, passed away on July 7, 2012 at the Canyonlands Care Center in Moab.

Ken was born July 16, 1926 in Honolulu, Hawaii to M/SGT Joe E. and Una Ellen (Gaines) English.

He worked on the railroad for many years and was one of many who tried to make it big in uranium mining.

He was an independent, Christian, and a good man. He was a member of St. Francis Episcopal Church.

Ken touched many lives here in Moab. Among his greatest joys were the pets that he took care of.

He is survived by his cousin, Patsy Moore, of Colorado Springs, Colo.

He was preceded in death by his parents and three brothers.

At his request, cremation has taken place and he will be buried next to his parents at a later date.

Thank you to all of the doctors and nurses at the Canyonlands Care Center for their loving care extended to Ken.
