Kenneth Dean Schira

Kenneth Dean Schira, son of Edward and Winifred Schira, born Sept. 4, 1948 in Akron, Ohio, passed Nov. 9 surrounded by family in Madisonville, Tennessee.

Ken retired from the Stow, Ohio, Police Department, and headed west to follow his dreams of being a cowboy in Montana. After 13 years in the mountains of Beaverhead County, Ken and Kathryn moved east, to the mountains of Tennessee.

Left to mourn his death his loving wife Kathryn; sons Jordan and Chad Schira; daughters Amanda, Samantha; and son Kenneth II; sister Janice (Terry) Gillian.

Ken’s final wishes were that the friends he made across the country live happy, healthy lives and to remember him in their hearts, rather than a formal service.
