Kenneth John Thompson

Nov 05, 1951 — Sep 20, 2018

Ken Thompson, 66, of Frisco, Colorado, was surrounded by family when he passed away after a battle with cancer.

Ken was born in Utica, New York to Oscar and Carol Thompson. He attended the University of Findlay in Ohio and moved to Summit County in 1976. During most of his career, Ken was employed with Upton Construction and Willemsen Construction. He had 35 joyful years with his bride, Beth, raising their much loved daughter, Hannah.

Ken came from a family of five boys. When Ken married Beth, he gained four brother-in-laws which brought many years of fun times. Ken enjoyed bump skiing in his younger years and was passionate about golf. He will be remembered for his generosity, noted frequently when Ken offered his construction knowledge and skills to help many people with their home projects.

Ken was preceded in death by his father, Oscar. He is survived by his wife, Beth; mother, Carol; daughter and son-in-law, Hannah and Neal Stolz; first grandchild, Ryan Kenneth Stolz, born on 9-22-18; and brothers, Steve, Kurt, Pete, and Rich; along with many other beloved extended family members.

Ken’s celebration of life will be Friday, Oct. 5, from 5-8 p.m. at the Breckenridge Golf Course.
