Kenneth W. “Ken” Flowers, 77, of Dowagiac, passed away on Saturday, September 26, 2020, at Spectrum Health- Lakeland.

Ken was born on February 10, 1943, to Charles & Meleda (Bohn) Flowers in Benton Harbor. He graduated from Benton Harbor High School and continued his education at Western Michigan University where he earned his Bachelor’s in Engineering. Ken proudly served his country in the United States Air Forced before being honorably discharged. On January 21, 1967, Ken married the love of his life, Sharon “Sharie” Hamilton in Benton Harbor. He worked for Whirlpool Corp for over 27 years in multiple roles before his retirement.

Ken was an active member of the Moose Lodge 933 and VFW Post 1855, both located in Dowagiac. He was known to be a jack-of-all-trades and could always be found fixing things and working on projects around his home. He enjoyed playing the guitar, working in his garden and cooking on the grill. Most of all, he loved to spend his time with his family. Ken truly defined the roles of husband and father. His kids saw him as their hero that was always there for them through any ups or downs no matter what. His family will not only dearly miss his guidance and presence but his wonderful hugs as well.

Ken is survived by his wife and best friend of 53 years Sharie Flowers of Dowagiac; children, Ken (Misty) Flowers of St. Joseph, Rob Flowers of Dowagiac, Phyllis (Andy Hatter) Sarabyn of Dowagiac and Michael (Suzann) Flowers of Dexter, MI; grandchildren, Austin, Lindsey, Michael and Markus; great-grandchild Ryatt; and siblings, Glen (Fritz) Flowers of Sodus, Bud Flowers of Hartford, Florence Hemminger of Hartford, Carol (Ray) Murphy of TX and Judy Gustafson of St. Joseph.

Ken was preceded in death by his parents, Charles & Meleda Flowers and siblings, twin sister Kathy Smith, Dee Schmidt, Dorothy Zuhl, Jeannette Totzke, and Gerry Flowers.

Memorial contributions may be made to VFW Post 1855. Those wishing to leave an online condolence may do so at Arrangements have been entrusted to Starks & Menchinger Chapel & Cremation Services, St. Joseph. The family will be holding a celebration of remembrance at a future date.
