Kenneth "Ken" Evenson

August 9, 1949 — December 16, 2022

Rushford

 

Kenneth “Ken” A. Evenson, 73, of Rushford, MN  passed away peacefully on Friday,

December 16, 2022, at Mayo Clinic - Franciscan Healthcare in La Crosse, WI surrounded by his children. 

Kenneth Allen Evenson was born on Tuesday, August 9, 1949, in Rushford, MN to Carroll and Marian (Carlson) Evenson. He was raised in Rushford and was a graduate of Rushford High School. On June 12, 1976, Ken was united in marriage to Valarie Severtson. He served in the U.S. Army National Guard. He graduated from Winona Vocational School in Winona.

Throughout his life Ken was an avid hunter, handyman, and loving husband and dad. Ken enjoyed visiting National Parks with his wife and seeing as much of the US as possible together.

While there were many days in Ken’s life that changed him and formed him into the man he was…the day his married Valerie, the days each of the his children were born, but the day that changed him the most was the day he became a grandfather/“Bapa” for the first time. He adored all 8 of his grandchildren and they were the most of the part of his life. 

Ken is survived by his three children: Megan (Ben) Schemensky of Eagan, MN, Michael (Stephanie) Evenson of Rushford, and Matthew (Misty) Evenson of Granby, CO; eight grandchildren: Caygen, Kaleb, Michael Jr., Joseph, Kaelynn, Alexander, Jaidda, and Kenley; two sisters-in-law: Lorraine Evenson, and Lorraine (Brad) Williams; and brother-in-law, John Severtson.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Valerie,  parents and brother, Keith.
