Kenneth Harvey Trones
Age 90 of Edina, MN Born April 7, 1931
Kenneth went home to be with his Lord and Savior on December 23, 2021.
Ken was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota and was the eldest of two children. Born to Herman and Clara Trones. His sister was Betty Steward of Canyon Lake, California.
He attended college at the University of MN and was in the Korean Conflict. He served in the Navy.
Ken was a home builder in Edina, Eden Prairie and Bloomington for over 30 years. He owned Trones Construction.
He met his wife, Janet, of 60 years, at an open house in Edina, MN in 1959. They were married in March 1961. They then started attending Edina Baptist Church which later became Grace Church of Eden Prairie. They grew in their faith as a young married couple and raised their children to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Ken loved to travel and visited 63 countries. Whenever he heard of a country he had not been to, he started researching immediately and soon after booked his flights.
After retirement, Ken and Janet wintered in Fort Myers, Florida. They were blessed with many friends and a beautiful church community at McGregor Baptist Church.
Ken is survived by his wife of 60 years, Janet; daughter Susan (David) Walsh; 2 granddaughters, Katelyn Walsh, Kelly (Travis) Manderfield; daughter Karen (Marc) Debrey; 3 grandchildren, Jennifer (Jonny) Teschendorf, Michael Debrey, John Debrey; and many nieces and nephews.
