Kenneth Lee Siemens
He was born Dec. 11, 1938, in Bakersfield, Calif., the son of George and Viola Zacharias Siemens. After graduation at the age of 17, Kenny ventured to Eureka, Calif., where he did various jobs before he began his 30-year career with UPS.
Kenny was a longtime member of the Eel River Gun Club, where he became an accomplished trap shooter and won many distinguished awards. While visiting a close friend, Kenny and his wife were impressed with the beauty of Idaho and decided to retire in Twin Falls.
Kenny immediately joined the Twin Falls Gun Club in 1994, where he made many lifelong friends, enjoyed many fun-filled days shooting trap, skeet and playing cribbage. Kenny then discovered sporting clay shooting at the Jerome Rod and Gun club. He dedicated numerous hours of his time volunteering, promoting and applying for grants to help ensure the growth of the shooting sport he loved. Besides Kenny’s love and dedication to his wife Juanita, Kenny’s No. 1 passion was dove hunting; he never missed a Sept. 1 opening day of Dove Season.
Surviving are his wife, Juanita of Twin Falls; son, Michael Siemens of Blue Lake, Calif.; daughter, Donna Souza of Arcata, Calif.; brother, Everett Siemens of Shafter, Calif.; and sister – Dorris Sciaroni of San Carlos, Calif.; along with two grandchildren. Kenny will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
The family expressed their gratitude to the Encompass Home Heath and Hospice and to Norco Medical for all of their love and care.
A celebration of Kenny’s life will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, April 25, at the Kimberly Nazarene Church. Private interment was held at the Twin Falls Cemetery.
Arrangements are under the caring direction of Parke’s Magic Valley Funeral Home of Twin Falls.
