Kenneth E. Mehlbauer, age 67 of Morris, died Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati. Born August 31, 1953 in Owensboro, Kentucky, he is the son of Adeline (Nee: Bethel) and Clemeth Mehlbauer.
Ken was an electronics technician at the Office Shop for nearly 40 years. During much of his life, he was an avid deer hunter and fisherman. Greg remembers several trips he took with his dad fishing in Canada when he was younger. Later in life, when the grandkids came, Ken fished and hunted less, preferring to spend time with them and attending their activities.
He is survived by his son and daughter-in-law Greg and Shavonne of Metamora; sisters Sharon (Ryan) Fuller of Adairville, Kentucky, Pat Hamilton, Liz Frey, Donna Mehlbauer, Rosie (Terry) Stepp, Teresa (Gary) Taucher, all of Owensboro, Kentucky; brothers Larry (Lavonne) of Louisville, Kentucky, Tony (Sandy), and Danny (Lynn), all of Owensboro, Kentucky and grandchildren Rhyan and Mason Mehlbauer. In addition to his parents, he is also preceded in death by his grandson Aiden and brother Charles.
