HAMPDEN – Kenneth A. Pomeroy passed away January 21, 2014 in Hampden. Ken was born on July 4, 1929 in Hampden, the son of Merle and Gladys Pomeroy.
He lived in Hampden with his parents and graduated from Hampden Academy. Many would remember Ken from his years of employment at Sears Roebuck in Bangor. He was married to his loving wife Dorothy Pomeroy, and became a father to her five children on August 19, 1973. Ken was a devoted husband, and family man who provided love, stability, guidance, laughter, music, and wisdom to his entire family. He had many good friends, and was a friend to all of those he met. He was most proud of and interested in the lives of his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Over the years Ken enjoyed family times, camping, the ocean, star gazing, ham radio “K1DXC”, playing the piano and organ, and most of all loving his wife, “Dotty”. The song he would always play for her was their wedding song, “And I Love You So.” He will be missed dearly and loved forever by his wife, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, sister in-laws, brother in-laws, and his many friends.
