Kenneth Earl Wisniewski
Kenneth Earl Wisniewski, 82, of Depoe Bay, Ore., died Jan. 14, 2013 in Lincoln City, Ore.

He was born Aug. 25, 1930 to Charles and Lillian (Heaton) Wisniewski in Newport, Ore. He graduated from Taft High School in Lincoln City and joined the Navy.

In 1957, he married Carol Ann Plotts in Oceanlake, Ore. They raised two sons, Gary and Andrew. Carol passed away in 1985.

Ken worked as a superintendent for Morrison-Knudsen Construction. The company contracted to build large projects like Hoover Dam, the San Francisco Ė Oakland Bay Bridge, the Trans-Alaska Pipeline and the Kennedy Space Center. He traveled throughout the United States and to foreign countries for his job. But his favorite place in the world was Depoe Bay.

Ken married Marjorie Martin in 2001. They were married for six years when Marjorie passed away in 2007.

He was a charter member of the Lincoln City Elks. He loved gardening and canning the vegetables he grew. He also enjoyed hunting and fishing, and he played a mean game of pinochle.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Lillian (Heaton) Wisniewski; his first wife, Carol; his wife, Marjorie; and brother, Charles.

He is survived by his sons, Gary (Linda) Wisniewski and Andrew Wisniewski, both of Depoe Bay; stepchildren, Kim Houweling, Skip Van Diest and Sally Winfrey; and his brother, Donald Wisniewski.

Per Kenís request, there will not be any services.

Bateman Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
