He graduated from Corsicana High School in May of 1975 then joined the Military on September 23, 1975 where he went on to become a proud Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps.
Ken married Joyce in 2000 and they lived in Carrollton, Texas. He worked as the Project Manager in Facilities and Construction for the City of North Richland Hills.

He also leaves fourteen siblings to cherish his memory, Ronnie, Shelby, Frankie, Lena, Beth, Joyce, Peggy, Charlotte, Elton, Steven, Robert, Joy, Henry, and Audrey. Ken has numerous nieces, nephews and cousins and his very special, one in a million, Aunt Jo Ann Tomlin.
He was preceded in death by his mother, Frankie Oleta Raney; father, Grover Raney; brother, Grover Earl Raney; sister, Rose Ann; and grandparents, Frank and Lena Arnett, Aaron G. and Carrie Raney.
