Drumheller, Kenneth (Ken) Christian, born on September 7, 1966 in Charlottesville, VA and a longtime resident of Richmond left this world way too soon on September 6, 2012. He was preceded in death by maternal grandparents Nancy and Bill Christian and his paternal grandparents John and Biddy Drumheller. His grandmother Biddy, who was buried September 5th, was there to roll out the red carpet for him. He leaves behind his devoted and loving wife, Kathy, his caring and attentive brother, John; his parents, Nancy and Ron who thank god for such a loving son for his almost 46 years. He is also survived by his in-laws, Mary and Chuck Leahey, sister-in-law, Maureen Leahey, brother-in-law, John and his wife, Mary; brother-in-law, Charlie and his wife Amy, and their son, Charlie. More loving family including, his aunt and uncle, Maureen and John Drumheller; cousins, Sean and his wife Rene, Scott and his wife, Veronica and, daughters Sally and Collin; his aunt Kathy Paczkowki; cousins, Rob and Aleena and Stacy and her husband Phil Brassington and sons, Tristan and Bodin.
Ken was a graduate of Godwin High School and Elon College where he was a Sigma Phi Epsilon. The Tuesday before he left us, 30 of his frat brothers came from east to west to pray with him and be with him and it was the best visit one could ever imagine. His willing spirit to always treat others as you would want be treated, shined through in his willingness to help everyone he came in contact with. Ken was loved by all. His expertise and perfectionism, showed his courageous strength that continued during his short battle with gastric cancer. Ken loved the Potomac River more than words could ever say and he cherished spending time on his boat, the Drumcicle, fishing with his father. He recently worked for the Service Company of Virginia where his dedication was intense and strong, but God had another project for him. We will miss him more than any words could ever express.
Ken's life will be celebrated on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 at the River Road Presbyterian Church, 8960 River Road, 23229 at 2:00 followed by a fellowship visitation. Memorial contributions may be made to the Bon Secours Cancer Institute, 5801 Bremo Road, 23226. Nelsen Funeral Home, 4650 S Laburnum Ave, Richmond, is handling arrangements.
