Kenneth "Ken" Masters

Kenneth “Ken” Masters, 76, of Philpot, passed away February 16, 2023, at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital after a valiant long-term battle with multiple health issues. He was born July 16, 1946, in Carter County, KY, to the late Joseph Milton and Letha Bell (Conley) Masters. Though not of the Catholic Faith, he was a devout and active Member of Sts. Joseph and Paul Catholic Church while attending with his wife Mary Ann and daughters. He also enjoyed serving as a hospitality minister for many years.  

 

After graduating from George Rogers Clark High School in Winchester, KY, he served in the U.S. Army and went on to graduate from Morehead State University after completing his military service. He then met the love of his life Mary Ann in Louisville, Ky. Following their marriage, together they moved to Owensboro, Ky, and began the journey and joy of adopting their two wonderful daughters. His employment included Pinkerton, Baskin Robbins, and Dana Corp.  

 

In addition to his parents, Ken was preceded in death by his brothers, Frankie, Wayne, Danny, and Billy Masters; and his brothers-in-law, Lew Hooker and Dave Troxell. 

 

He is survived by his loving and devoted wife of 48 years, Mary Ann Masters; his cherished daughters, Lisa Martin (Steve) and LeeAnn Lewis (Seth Edge); three treasured grandchildren, Ayden, Joslyn, and Camryn; his brother, George Masters (Paula); his sisters, Barbara Hooker, Sue Carnine (Dan), and Judy Troxell; his sister-in-law, Sandy Masters; and many beloved nieces and nephews.   

 

After retirement, he and Mary Ann found tremendous enjoyment traveling on various adventures around the world. Ken spent treasured time with his brothers on many deer hunting excursions, always enjoying family gatherings, and U.K. basketball games. Being a “Granddaddy” to his three grandchildren brought him indescribable joy and happiness. 

 

The memorial service will be at 10am Wednesday at Sts. Joseph and Paul Catholic Church, Owensboro, Ky. Visitation will be from 3pm until 7pm Tuesday evening at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory, and from 9am until 10am Wednesday at the church.  

 

We extend a special heartfelt thanks to his devoted medical team of many years headed by Dr Bernard Buchanan MD. 

 

In Ken’s name, donations can be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation or American Diabetes Association.
