Kenneth, son of Bernard and Darlene Nollette, was born November 28, 1954 in Gordon, Nebraska.  Ken was born and raised in the Sandhills of Nebraska, attending school at Cody-Kilgore. After graduation, he began work for the US Meat and Animal Research Center where he met Kathy Sholtz and they married August 23, 1975.  Together they made a home in Guide Rock, NE then Juniata, NE where they raised their four daughters.

Ken was a cowboy. He spent his life working with cattle on various ranches in the Sandhills, their own dairy farm in Guide Rock and with Gottsch Feedyards. He was passionate about horses, spending many happy times on trail rides with his girls, working cattle and roping with friends.  Later in life, Ken became an avid fisherman, finding peace on a quiet lake with a fishing pole.  His pride and joy was his family, but especially his ten grandchildren who always brought light to his eyes.

Kenneth was preceded in death by his parents.
