Kenneth worked for Kenworth of Cedar Rapids for almost 30 years, where his coworkers would say, "If Ken can't fix it, it's not fixable."
He was a member of Cedar Hills Community Church. Kenneth enjoyed being part of a team that worked at church and around the community. He also enjoyed hunting, fishing and riding his bike on the trails.
Survivors include his wife, Nancy LeClere of Cedar Rapids; children, Brian LeClere (Katy Merritt) of Mount Vernon, Iowa, and Laura LeClere of Cedar Rapids; and grandchildren, Walter and Greyson, whom he loved tremendously.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Cap and Dolores.
