Kenneth Ray Daughty, Sr. went to be with the Lord on Monday, July 1, 2019.

Ken’s story began on July 30,1952, the youngest of six children born to David and Geraldine (Williams) Daughty. He grew up in McLoud, Oklahoma and had many positive role models throughout his formative years including two special coaches—Coach R. Long and Coach S. Ward. Ken played football, basketball, and baseball which led to scholarship offers that included one to OU. He played baseball for the Boston Red Sox.

Ken worked at Wall Colmonoy as an aeronautical mechanical engineer and retired in 2017. Ken truly lived life to the fullest: chatting with friends and family, snacking and barbecuing, cutting lawns for the elderly, golfing, and watching all types of sporting events both live and on television. Ken and Ycedra enjoyed traveling together.

Ken’s final days were spent surrounded by family and friends. He was a God-fearing, hard-working family man who is loved, is missed, and will always be cherished.

Loved ones that miss Ken and will continue his legacy are his wife of 47 years, Ycedra, sons, Ken Jr. (Rashell) and Andre (Danielle), grandchildren, Ken III, Kashell, Jaiden, and Cambria, and two sisters Joyce Franklin, Catherine Daughty.
