Kenneth Edward was born March 3, 1942, in Kanawha, IA, the son of Edgar and Maxine (Dunfee) Tegland. He attended school in Fort Dodge.

Over the years, Ken worked at Coats Company, Standard Engineering, Montgomery Wards, Bush Hog, drove truck, and Brooks Laundry until his retirement in 2004. He was a member of Epworth United Methodist Church. Ken enjoyed spending time with his family – especially his great grandchildren. He also enjoyed hummingbirds, church, camping, fishing, cheering on the Iowa Hawkeyes, and relaxing in his chair while watching TV. Ken was full of jokes and smart alec comments. He will be dearly missed.
