Kenneth Vandeberg Obituary

Kenneth D. Vande Berg, age 74, of Brandon, passed away on May 10, 2023, after a long battle with prostate cancer.  He was born on March 10, 1949.  Ken lived in Brandon all of his life in the house he was raised in by his mother, Junice (Straks) Vande Berg, who preceded him in death.  He was one of seven children:  Kathleen Cole and Keith Vande Berg, who survive him; Larry Vande Berg, Donna Daane, Diane Umbarger and Betty Vande Brink, who preceded him in death.

Ken graduated in 1967 from Brandon High School and served in the Army for two years during the Vietnam war.  He worked at Speed Queen all of his life until his retirement.  He loved sports and enjoyed playing baseball and golfing, including trips to Arizona with friends for many years.  He also coached little league baseball.

Ken had a great memory and a witty personality.  His doctor once described him as the most “pleasant cantankerous” person he had ever met which aptly described his battle with cancer as well as his sense of humor.  He was always fun to talk with.

Ken is survived by his siblings, Kathleen and Keith; his son, Robert “Bobby” Kimball; grandchildren, Kaylee and Kaden Kimball; his sister-in-law, Pat Vande Berg, and many nieces and nephews.

A Funeral for Ken will be held at 12:00pm on Saturday, May 20, 2023 at Divine Passage Funeral Home in Ripon. Visitation will be held on Saturday, May 20, from 10:00am-12:00pm at Divine Passage Funeral Home with burial to follow in the Brandon Cemetery with Full Military Honors.
