Kenneth Burdick Obituary

Kenneth Charles Burdick  attended Montana State University earning a B.A. in philosophy and went on to attend Boston University School of Theology, earning a Master of Divinity. He subsequently served United Methodist churches in Townsend and Whitehall, Montana.

He grew up in Libby graduating from Libby High School in 1965. While attending MSU he met his beloved wife, Kay. They were married in June 1969. In 1979 Ken and Kay moved themselves and their two daughters (Laura, Jeanette) to Eugene, Oregon. He was employed by Eugene Coin and Jewelry for the past 35 years. Throughout his years in Eugene, he was an active member in the Trinity United Methodist Church.

He was remembered as an infinitely patient, generous, compassionate, kind and tender-hearted soul who was accepting of all people. He was a man with a huge heart who showered his family with abundant love and care. Ken was a “seeker,” a life-long learner with an inquiring, inquisitive mind, a person who continually questioned the world around him. Above all, Ken was a mystic, a spiritually grounded man who embraced mystery in all its forms and expressions.
