Kenneth W. Kellenberg

Published On: Jan 09 2013 09:01:10 AM CST

He was born on March 25, 1940 in Milwaukee, son of Walter W. and Helen A. (Jaeger) Kellenberg. On June 6, 1964 Kenneth was married to Natalie Lees at Faith Community Church in Roslyn, PA. Their greatest blessing was raising their five children. Kenneth's lifetime dedication was to be a student and teacher of the Bible. He was an instrumental part of Elmbrook Church in Brookfield, WI. He founded Faith Community Bible Church in Madison. He also held other positions throughout his life including mission work in Belgium and England, Blast Craft, Environmental Control and Di Rienzo Monument Company. Kenneth had a pastor's heart and was the true definition of a gentleman. He loved traveling and camping with his family and he was an enthusiastic collector of pens, coffee cups and books...especially the Bible. His most cherished time was spent with his grandchildren.
