Kenneth August Link

November 2, 1933 — November 4, 2021

Kenneth August Link, 88, passed away peacefully in his Davie home on November 4, 2021. He was born November 2, 1933 in Woodhaven, Queens, New York. He married his late wife, Barbara (Blasius) Link on August 24, 1957 and celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary in 2017. Kenneth is survived by his sister-in-laws, Claire Link and Marge Warren, his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Pat and Ronald Blasius, and his five children, Ray Link (Muffie Hutchison), Keith Link (MaryLu Link), Cyndi Lopes (Carlos Lopes), Chris Link (Lilli Borger), and Julie Link. All five children graduated from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale. He is also survived by his thirteen grandchildren, Brian Link, Karly Link, P.J. Link, Samantha Link (AJ Craig), Celena Lopes, Jillian Link (Courtney Bloch), Taylor Cubbedge (Corbin Cubbedge), J.R. Norman, Kayla Murray, Casey Lopes, Jake Murray, Skyler Link, and Louis Link and his five great grandchildren, Mariah Beecher, Isabella Beecher, Jahkayden Welcome, Jahkaydah Welcome, and Khloe Siever. Additionally, his niece Linda Warren and many more nieces and nephews were near to his heart. Kenneth graduated from Andrew Jackson High School in 1950. He then served in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS White Marsh during the Korean War before moving to Broward County, Florida where he resided for 59 years. During his children’s youth, he regularly volunteered for the City of Lauderdale Lakes, as well as coached and umpired baseball. He worked for Holsum Bread Company until 1999 where he prided himself in never calling out sick during his 30 years. Kenneth was active and hardworking, and following his retirement, he held a job with the City of Plantation for eight years until he was 79 years old. In his downtime he was an avid member of the Elks Lodge, Moose Lodge, and the American Legion. He enjoyed dancing, reading, storytelling, swimming his daily laps at the neighborhood pool, and spending time with his big family. Kenneth was always the life of the party and could often be found on the dance floor. He was a great and loving husband, father, and grandpa. May his zest for life live on through his loved ones.
