Obituary – Dewey “Ken” Breckenridge

Dewey Kenneth Breckenridge went to his heavenly home on February 28, 2021, after living a full and blessed life on this earth for 89 years.

He is lovingly remembered by Bonnie, his wife of 69 years; daughter, Beverly Williams and her husband, Dean; son, Mark; 2 brothers, Carlon and Gale; 3 sisters, Emma Brasher, Ida Lenderman and Mary Mestas and her husband, Ben; one sister-in-law, Betty Breckenridge; 7 Grandchildren; 16 Great Grandchildren; 1 Great-Great Grandson, and a host of other family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ray, and Beulah; a brother, Coy; 3 sisters, Willadean, Naomi and Vera; and a son, Kenny Allen.

Ken gave his heart and life to Jesus in his early adult life and faithfully served at the Roby Baptist Church in countless ways, to include deacon, teacher and song leader. Everyone that knew him can testify to his love and devotion to his Savior.

He served in the United States Marine Corp during the Korean War February 4, 1952, and was honorably discharged January 16, 1954.

Ken loved the outdoors whether he was fishing on the river, hunting in the woods, working in his vegetable and flower gardens, riding his tractor on the farm, or just sitting on the front porch listening to the birds and petting his faithful dog, Sugar. He loved watching Cardinal baseball, especially when they were winning! He also loved singing Christian music (especially old hymns of the faith) and listening to gospel preaching.

Leaving a legacy of selfless and humble service, Ken strived to be what his heavenly Father wanted him to be. He was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed until we meet again.

“Well done thou good and faithful servant… enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”
