Memorial services are scheduled for 11 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2014, at LaGrone Funeral Chapel for Kenneth Carl Case, age 59, of Roswell, who passed away on Jan. 29, 2014. Pastor Rick Hale of Grace Community Church will officiate.
Ken was born on Aug. 22, 1954, to Walter Neil and Mary Bess (Hester) Case in Roswell. He was preceded in death by his father.
Ken graduated from Goddard High School in June 1972, and Wayland Baptist University, May 1983, with a degree in Religion/Communications. Ken’s first love was radio, and he worked as a DJ at many stations over the years, including KKAT, KRSY, KBCQ and KBIM in Roswell, plus many others around the state. He also worked master control at several TV stations, before returning to Roswell and working as a dispatcher for the NM State Police for 16 years until retirement.
Ken spent time with his many Case cousins at a family reunion in Boulder, Colo., this past summer. Ken was a Christian and had a very deep faith in the Lord; he is with Him now and is at peace.
He is survived by his mother: Bess Case; sister: Janet Case and husband, Bill Surgett; nephew, Marty Seeley and his son, Braydon, and stepchildren: Orion and Angelina; uncle, James Hester, of New Hampshire; cousin, Hollie Hester, of Chimayo, along with a host of other cousins; aunt Lois Case, of California, niece, Stephanie Wygocki-Sanchez, her husband, Joseph Sanchez, and their children: Michael, Jonathan, James Paul and Joseph.
