IRONWOOD, Mich. — Kenneth George Kielcheski, 74, of Merriweather, passed away Monday, Sept. 18, 2017, at Aspirus Ironwood Hospital.

He was born in Park Falls, Wis., on May 2, 1943, to George and Irene (Brown) Kielcheski.

He married Susan A. Barrette in Merriweather at his home. He was a graduate of Bergland High School and attended Michigan State University. He entered the Michigan State Police and retired as sergeant after 40 years of service. He also worked as a logger and owned and operated KK Logging Company.

He was an avid sportsman. He enjoyed being surrounded by his friends. Softball brought the best out of Ken. He truly loved the camaraderie. Pool was another skill which he honed to a science with league competition. Indeed, he had a need for speed, many sports cars and Harleys. “Let the good times roll.” Cheers to all his friends, whom he cherished.

KK was a lover of all animals.

Ken is survived by his wife, Susan.

At the request of Ken’s family, services will be private.

Donations would be appreciated to HOPE Animal Shelter on Easy Street in Ironwood. Special thanks to Aspirus Hospital for the wonderful care of Ken and his family.
