Kenneth “Ken” Hull, a former resident of Eugene Oregon, passed away on January 11th 2019 at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center in Vancouver, Washington. He was 65. Ken was born in Klamath Falls on September 3, 1953 and later moved to Cottage Grove where he graduated from Cottage Grove High School. He attended Southern Oregon University before starting his career in Law Enforcement.
Ken began his Law Enforcement career with the Oregon State Police and then joined the Lane County Sheriff’s Office as a Deputy Sheriff in 1978 where he retired after 25 years of service in 2003. Upon retirement, Ken decided to take his skill set to Three Rivers Casino where he soon was promoted to the Director of Security and worked for 10 years. Ken was recruited by Seven Feathers Casino and Resort to be an Assistant General Manager and that is where he ended his working career.
Ken’s personality impacted the lives of both those he worked with and the public he served. By using compassionate humor, he was able to diffuse stressful situations with favorable outcomes. These qualities were displayed throughout his entire career.
His life was chronicled by the many letters and notes he wrote to express his love to his family. His legacy of selflessness, compassion and generosity lives on in his children and grandchildren who possess many of these similar qualities.
