Kenneth Louis Fleischman was born Dec. 26, 1944 to Emma Jaspering Fleischman and Louis Albert Fleischman of Higginsville, MO. Ken passed away June 4, 2018 after suffering a stroke in March.

He worked in several industries including Hallmark and Austin Company. He left the corporate world to become a general contractor.
