Kenneth N. Plante, died peacefully, Friday, April 5th at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, with his children by his side, after a long illness. He was sixty-eight years of age.

Born in Northbridge, MA, Ken was a son of the late Norman J. and Marie L. (St. Martin) Plante. He was raised and educated in Marlboro, and during the Vietnam War, he enlisted in the US Army. He served his country proudly, earning numerous medals and commendations, until being honorably discharged.

Ken was a contractor by trade and worked around the state for many years. He worked on many lucrative projects and upscale shopping centers, being best known for his finish carpentry work.

While his children were growing up, they resided in Chelmsford. He worked hard to support his children and encouraged them to strive for greatness.

When he wasn’t working, Ken could be found either by the ocean or a lake, fishing! He was an avid fisherman whose skills he handed down to his siblings and children. He always had wonderful and comical fishing stories and enjoyed every moment he was out there.

He was a smart, generous, proud and giving man who would do anything for his family, and will be deeply missed.

    Linda and I are devestated at the loss of Kenny. We are so sorry that we could not be there in Woburn. It is a sad World now, without a soul like his to be gone. We have loved him since freakin’ Marlboro High School, for crying out loud. He was Linda first HS crush. I’ve learned that she sent many letters to him during his service and sacrifice in Vietnam. We are so, so sad for your family, his beautiful children, all his friends and his comrades in arms. We so loved this man. RIP. Our friend. Hope you know how loved you were and will remain. Godspeed. Amen.
