On Jan. 1, 2022, Kenneth Warren Alexander passed away from natural causes. Kenneth was born on May 5, 1928, in North Bend. A proud native Oregonian, he made his home on a section of the family's original donation land claim outside of the small town of Dillard. He spent his life providing for his family by working in the logging industry, and owned his own small logging business as a young man. After a tragic logging accident and a long period of recovery, Kenneth returned to work in the logging industry as a truck driver, which he continued until his retirement.

He enjoyed many outdoor activities and was an avid hunter and fisherman. Kenneth lived a long and rewarding life. Strong, self-sufficient and resourceful, Ken was one of the last of a dying breed.

In death, Kenneth joins his wife Arlene, and son Kenneth “Butch” Alexander. He is survived by three of his four children: Al Alexander, Judy Alexander Dady, Susan Marlow, and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. No service is planned at this time.
