Kenneth Charles Huston, age 72 of Buffalo, passed away September 26, 2019. He was born on January 6, 1947 to Albert and Mildred (Carlson) Huston. Ken grew up in Buffalo and attended high school there. He enlisted to serve with the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He proudly served his country for 4 years, from 1964-1968.

Kenneth was joined in marriage to Diane Wandersee on July 12, 1979 in Alexandria, MN. The two recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.

In his retirement years, he enjoyed going up north to hunt for deer with his brothers, and loved taking his grandsons fishing. He enjoyed spending time in the outdoors, creating special memories with them. He and Diane went on many vacations together to Mexico, where he loved to go deep sea fishing.

He was an accomplished gardener, and could grow beautiful roses and perfect tomatoes, among other vegetables. He took special pride in his garden and landscaping the yard to perfection.

Ken was also a member of the local VFW and Legion for 51 years.
