Kenneth Lynn “Ken” Latham, a witty and adventurous soul, was born on August 30, 1964, in Little Rock, AR, and lived a life full of love and laughter. He passed away on June 26, 2023, in Russellville. He will always be remembered for his loyalty and love for his family, friends, and all things Disney.
Ken’s adventurous spirit was evident in his hobbies, which included fishing, brewing and drinking beer, and always planning the next family adventure. He lived by the Walt Disney quote, “When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.” As a loving husband and father, he cherished his family above all else. He married Elizabeth Walker on June 3, 1989. After starting their family they welcomed their child, Han Latham, with great joy. Ken’s loyal nature extended to his work, where he worked across the state as a manufacturing engineer in automation and robotics and he was currently working as an engineer for Arkansas Nuclear One. Ken will be remembered as a loving husband, father, brother, and uncle.
