Mesquite, NV & Manti, UT
With sadness in our hearts, we announce the passing of our dad, Kenneth Wayne Hamblin, March 27, 2023 in Mesquite, NV. He was born September 9, 1947 in Brigham City to Paul and Geneal Stewart Hamblin. When his mother passed at a young adult age his dad married Shirley who had a big impact on his life.
Ken served on the front line in Vietnam as a member of the Marine Corps — thank you for your service Dad! Dad had many earthly struggles and we are at peace knowing he is healthy, happy, and whole again. He was always the life of the party wherever he went and a people person. Our love for him was unconditional and we knew without a doubt he loved his kids and grandkids and was so proud of us.
Fly Daddy, fly free, we are happy you are having a great big reunion with your parents, sisters, and brothers in that big golf course in the sky. Ken was hard and tough, but underneath he was a sweet and gentle man. Ken and Diane had a short 5 years together, it was worth every minute. He was my Honey and I was his. Bye for now.
Ken is survived by his wife, Diane; children: Wendy Smith, Gary (Tonya) Hamblin, Tina (Brett) Turner, Scott (Kenndi) Hamblin; 16 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.
We love you, rest in peace until we meet again.
Private family graveside services will be held at a later date with military honors. Funeral Directors: Magleby Mortuary, Richfield, Salina and Manti. Online guestbook at www.maglebymortuary.com
