Kenneth "Ken" Bishop, 76, of Green Bay and formerly of Crivitz, departed this life on Tuesday, October 2, 2018 at St. Vincent Hospital surrounded by his family.
Ken was born on November 4, 1941 in West Allis, WI, son of the late Thomas and Drina Bishop. Ken grew up in a very large family, with 15 siblings. He was a veteran of the United States Air Force and worked as a Machinist for most of his life for several organizations. Ken was an Arborist for Milwaukee County for many years.
In his spare time he loved to "tinker" and tried to fix things with the best of intentions. Ken is remembered as an extremely hard worker who supported his family. He was an avid Green Bay Packer fan. He will be missed greatly by his four legged companion "CeCe" who was with him all the time. With his large family, Ken enjoyed the many gatherings and loved to spend time with them.
He will be sadly missed by his three children: Brent (Ping-Ju) Bishop, Mark (Jennifer) Bishop and Tracey Bishop. Ken also leaves his beloved grandchildren: Joshua, Jake, Emily, Cooper, Rachel, and Jonah. He also leaves many siblings, extended family, and friends.
Relatives and friends will gather to honor his life on Tuesday, October 9th from 4 - 6 PM at Newcomer - Green Bay Chapel, 340 S. Monroe Avenue. A service celebrating his life will end the evening at 6 PM in the funeral home. Interment will be private at a later date.
Memorial contributions may be directed to the Wisconsin Humane Society Green Bay Campus.
Ken's family wishes to express their deep gratitude to the wonderful staff of St. Vincent Hospital and Unity Hospice for the care given to him in his final days.
