Kenneth Lee Amberg



Ken unexpectedly passed away at the young age of 64, on July 3rd 2018, at Waccamaw Community Hospital, while surrounded by his loving family. Ken was born in Newark, New Jersey to Aleen and Joseph Amberg.

Ken resided in New Jersey with his wife Pam until 2015 when they relocated to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina to enjoy their much deserved retirement. Ken enjoyed many hobbies; some of the closest to him were manicuring his beloved lawn, fishing, cruisin’ the Intracoastal Waterway with his wife on their pontoon boat, taking care of his Granddogs, mastering the art of Snapchat video’s and spending time with his family. Ken would never deny a friendly game of mini golf, these matches would many times turn highly competitive where Ken knew no limits to win. Ken was the most family oriented man, sometimes driving hundreds of miles one way to spend time with his children. There was no distance to far and no reason to small for him, he would hop into his truck and drive just to get breakfast. Ken was a proud father attending all of his children’s graduations and ceremonies no matter where in the country they were located. Ken enjoyed taking annual family vacations; they included many cruises and camping trips to both Disney and Myrtle Beach.

Prior to his retirement in 2007, Ken was a 25 year member to Sheet Metal Workers Union, Local 25 in Carlstadt, New Jersey.
