Obituary: S. Kenneth Trupp


S. Kenneth Trupp

Beloved brother, uncle, friend and animal lover, Ken Trupp, died peacefully Friday evening, October 28, after battling cancer for several years, complicated by recent
kidney failure. 

Born 81 years ago, Ken was the beloved son of the late Bertha Minnie Trupp and Bernard Trupp. Loving brother of Morty Trupp and the late Philip Trupp. Ken leaves many adored nieces and nephews and the many friends that he loved.

After serving in Vietnam and retiring as an English professor at Glendale College, Ken moved to Blaine over 20 years ago. He rapidly stepped into an active role in the community, attending city council meetings, joining the Blaine United Church of Christ, the food bank, volunteering and leading the crisis assistance group in CAP (Community Assistance Program), and rescuing elderly dogs and cats through the Alternative Humane Society in Bellingham.

Perhaps Ken is known by most of Blaine community because he walked his elderly rescue dogs four times a day, rain or shine through the streets of Blaine, stopping and talking to many of us as they walked.

Memories and stories of how Ken touched your life can be left on the Kenneth Trupp page at the website.  At his request no service is planned.  Memorial gifts can be made to any of the above charities or one of your choice.
