Ken's great great grandfather was a Polish Baron, Baron Von Reuß, with
extensive property in Poland. Following Hitler's invasion of Poland records of the family
were destroyed as was much of Poland's historical data.
Ken first met Sue when they worked for a Barnstaple insurance firm, although at the time
Ken was married to Pauline and Sue was engaged to Geoffrey. It was some years later when
both these marriages had failed that Ken and Sue met again and their relationship blossomed
into marriage. Ken had been working as a postman in the Bournemouth area, later
transferring to work in Barnstaple. Unfortunately he suffered with arthritis which
eventually lead to his premature retirement on health grounds.
Ken was father to Michael, Christopher and Kathy and sadly died in December 1990 just 2
months before the birth of his first grandchild, Matthew. He has been greatly missed!
