He was born August 13, 1925 in Dayton, PA, on his family farm where he lived all his life, to Clyde Delvin Brumbaugh and Fannie Sarah (Simpson) Brumbaugh.

Kenneth served in Italy with the US Army during World War II as a member of the 350th infantry regiment, 88th infantry division Blue Devils. He was awarded the Bronze Star for his service to his country. Kenneth was a lifetime member of Belknap United Church of Christ and Dayton American Legion Post 995. He retired as a supervisor from P&N Coal Company of Punxsutawney, while also maintaining his family farm. Kenneth enjoyed woodworking in his spare time and will be remembered for being a wonderful dad and “Pop-Pop.”

He was the proud father of Marcia Green and husband, Richard, of Ford City, and twins, Melinda Bekic, of Girard, and Melissa Lightner and husband, Kenneth, of Smicksburg. He had no greater joy than his grandchildren, Sara Green, of Ford City, Philip Green and wife, Jennifer, of Butler, and Laura Lightner, of Smicksburg; great-grandchildren, Brady and Cole Green; and his furry grandchildren, Polly and Spiffy. He is also survived by his sister-in-law, Lorraine Jordana, of Virginia Beach, VA; nephew who provided many hours of companionship and loving care, Jerry Quinn and wife, Judy, of Kennett Square, PA; and many other nieces, nephews and cousins.

The family would also like to thank Roy Cogley who checked on Dad daily, which allowed him to stay on the farm. A special thank you also goes out to Judy Walter from Three Rivers Hospice for her compassion and care for our dad.

Kenneth was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Joanne; infant son, Matthew; sisters, Ruth Quinn and Evelyn Patterson; brother, Lewis “Bud” Brumbaugh; and dog, Buddy.
