Kenneth Donley

Kenneth Arthur Donley, age 67, of Baraboo (formerly of Adams), Wisconsin unexpectedly passed away Saturday, September 2, 2023 at his home.

Kenneth was born on June 08, 1956, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to his devoted parents, Robert Roy and Lorraine Louise (Tourdot) Farber. His childhood was marked by memorable moments in Reedsburg, Wisconsin Dells, and later Adams-Friendship, where he attended Middle School. In 1975, Kenneth proudly graduated from Adams-Friendship High School before embarking on a dedicated decade of service to his country as a member of the United States Air Force.

Following his honorable military service, Kenneth returned to Wisconsin and embarked on a fulfilling career at Flambeau Plastic in Baraboo, where his commitment and dedication were unwavering, and where he remained employed up until his passing.

Kenneth’s zest for life extended to his love for the great outdoors, where he found solace in nature. He cherished moments of target shooting, camping, hunting, and golfing, all of which allowed him to connect with the beauty of the world around him. Kenneth was also a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of the Green Bay Packers and Milwaukee Brewers, demonstrating his enduring Wisconsin pride.

Memorials may be directed in Kenneth’s memory to Adams County Humane Society.

Kenneth was preceded in death by his beloved parents, Robert and Lorraine Farber, leaving behind cherished memories and a legacy of honor.

He is survived by his brother, Douglas (Linda) Donley of Friendship, WI; nephew, Robert (Caity Nauer) Donley, and nieces Amanda (Dan) Barnes and Wendy (Brandon) Cole also remain to carry forward his memory. In addition to his immediate family, Kenneth leaves behind countless other relatives and friends who will forever hold him in their hearts.

A Celebration of Life is planned for later date.

    Sorry for your loss of Ken. He was wonderful man and great friend and co worker. I have a a lot of great memories of him , of all the fun times we spent together that I will never forget. Trips we took together, working at Pepperidge Farm together ( he loved that job), and working at Flambeau for almost 35 years. What an accomplishment.
    He is really gonna be missed. Luke will miss his trips to Culvers and the zoo with his “grandpa” , that he liked to call him. We will miss you Ken !! Love Heidi Bump and Luke Neumeyer.
