Kenneth J. Eiting, 79, Minster, passed away peacefully from a sudden illness on April 6, 2013.
He was born Aug. 2, 1933, and married Irma Klosterman, who also is deceased.
Ken is survived by his children and their spouses, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, Tim (Kristy) Eiting of New Bremen and their children Matt, Craig and Tyler; Linda (Dave) Garke of Coldwater and their children Rebecca, Ashley and Greg, Jacob and Melissa, and great-grandchildren Luka and Graclyn; Nick Eiting of Anna, Vickie (Jeff) Wuebker of McCartyville and their children Ben and Kyle; a sister, Ethel Joyce of Vandalia; and a special friend and longtime companion Barbara Ott of Findlay.
He was preceded in death by a brother and two sisters.
Ken was a member of St. Augustine Parish, The Brown Swiss Association, firing squad for the American Legion and a past member of the Minster Historical Society. He was a veteran of the Korean War.
