Kenneth Robert Juers (Oct 20,1937 - Nov 23, 2009)

This is a test! Ken was my father; borne as the 4th child to Harry Paul & Helen Juers, Ken had 4 kids with 2 wives; Lisa Ann & Roy James II (1962 & 1965) with Joyce E. Asaro, & then Amanda Brett & Alyson Brooke (1976 & 1978) with Joan Zawolik. He also raised stepdaughter Karrie Wyatt (1984), thru marriage with Roberta Cole Wyatt, from when she was a toddler.
Ken lived in the Bronx NY as a boy/adolescent, then in Oyster Bay, Bayville, Glen Cove & East Northport NY as an adult, before relocating with pregnant wife Joan, to Sacramento CA, in the summer of 1978. Shortly thereafter, Alyson was born. He then lived in Orangevale, Citrus Heights & finally Chico, CA.
Ken developed Stage 4 lung cancer & despite a terrible prognosis, chose to fight it with radical chemotherapy, & went through the initial rounds of it with flying colors. But afterwards, when he began the maintenance chemo, it was too much for his body & he developed complications that he couldn't recover from. Dad passed away November 23, 2009; he was just 72.
As a US Navy Veteran, Ken was laid to rest, interred with his brother Roy, at Long Island National Cemetary at Pinelawn, Plot V1806, Farmingdale NY, in a military ceremony on May 6, 2010. A bottle of Grand Marnier was devour by his survivors at the Bonanza Italian Ice stand in Oyster Bay, where he often took my sister & I as kids.

Me & Dad at the Ballgame…
