Bidding a sad farewell to our colleague and friend…
Kenneth “Ken” Kiesenwetter, 65, of Sarasota, Florida, passed away on December 1st, of a stroke caused by blood clots. His sudden death was a shock to his family, friends, and the community.
Instead of a traditional service, there will be a Celebration of Life on March 17th on Siesta Key Beach. This was Ken’s favorite day of the year and also his birthday.
Ken was an exceptional husband and father. Ken and Glenda were married for over 15 years, producing Ken’s proudest accomplishment, his daughter Wendy. Ken doted on Wendy. He was never too busy to take her to and from school each day; they enjoyed going to the beach together; and Wendy flourished with Ken’s constant love and support.
Ken never met a stranger. He was known by friends and locals as “The Mayor of Siesta Key”. He was an incredibly successful Real Estate Agent for 25+ years. He worked for Amy Robinson Real Estate since 2012. He specialized on Siesta Key and knew more about the Condos on Siesta Key than any other agent; he was revered as an expert.
Anyone who knew Ken, knew his love for baseball- he was a baseball fanatic! He NEVER missed an Orioles game during Spring Training, he also went to the Spring Training in Ft Meyers to watch the Red Sox every chance he got. Ken was also an avid golfer. He loved to spend time outside among the beautiful scenery and wonderful people of Florida. He was quintessentially Florida!
Ken was extremely generous, no one could ever call him selfish. He always made a nice donation out of every commission check to Operation Second Chance. He was very giving and always took great care of support staff as well.
Ken will be sorely missed by his family, friends, and community members. He was a phenomenal man who will be lovingly remembered. In lieu of flowers, donations may be given to https://www.gofundme.com/ken-kiesewetter-medical-fund.
