Kenneth Eugene Crandell IV
March 31, 1965 ~ September 16, 2021
Kenneth Eugene Crandell peacefully took his last breath here on earth on September 16, 2021, and entered his enteral resting place after a lengthy battle with the Coronavirus in intensive care that ended with a severe stroke which released his heavenly spirit.
Ken's determination and courageous spirt is what allowed allowed Ken to "Let Go and Let God" let him make his journey into his heavenly home. He was never afraid to tackle what God had dealt him, he was raised that way by his dedicated parents Kenneth and Margo Crandall.
Ken was born March 31, 1965 in Fairfield, California on Travis Airforce Base.
From that time on Kenny would be surrounded by love and respect, that would take him far into life. Ken was one of two siblings that Kenneth and Margo conceived. His younger brother Dave Crandall grew up loving card games after meals, and playing competitive croquet with the family. Dave also enjoyed meals at Sizzler's Steak House, and eating all the shrimp they could eat, and seeing seeing who had the most shrimp tails at the end of the meal. Guess who won?
After high school Ken made a military career when he joined the United States Airforce. Being from a Airforce family it seemed like a perfect fit for Ken. After his basic training Ken became a successful airplane mechanic, and loved his career. He received an honorable discharge upon leaving the Airforce to care for family when his first wife developed several health issues. After leaving the military Ken would find himself turning bolts on many pieces of agricultural equipment, most recently at Standlee Hay Company in Eden, Idaho.
Unable to pursue his dream of having his own mechanic shop at a residence he purchased, Ken was still able to "tinker" on several vehicles as a side business. He loved the life God blessed him with and the time spent with family wherever it was; county fairs, holidays with relatives, vacations, or other events. It didn't matter he always enjoyed the fellowship of one another. He will be truly missed by the many that valued the time spent with him.
He leaves behind a legacy of survivors to include his wife of 19 years Brenda Crandall (VanZante) married on June 14, 2002 at the Valley Assembly of God Christian Center, his mother Margo Crandall (Doug) who raised him along side his sibling brother David Crandall.
Ken and Brenda had many extended aunts, uncles, family, and friends. He is survived by his blended family of children Kenneth III Crandall (Casey), Jayce Crandall (Savey), Christopher Crandall, Tyrell Crandall, Cheyene Bolzenthal-Egan (Trinedy), and Chancy Egan. Ken and Brenda were blessed with with grandchildren and spending great times together.
