Kenneth Edward Paradis was born on December 9, 1955, in Marshall, to Edward and Catherine (Schmoll) Paradis. He grew up in Marshall and graduated from Lynd High School in 1975. After school, Ken took a job working for Appleton Silos. In 1979, he took a job for the Schwan Food Company and worked for the company for 42 years, while also helping Clayton and Phil Swanson on their farm. He later worked for County Fair and, most recently, was working for Menards. He was an exceptionally hard worker. On July 23, 1983, he was married to Patricia “Trish” Johnson. The couple made their home and raised their family in Marshall. Ken was very generous and would always help anyone in need. He was very social and made friends very easily.

Kenneth died unexpectedly on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, at his residence in Marshall. He is survived by his wife, Trish, of Marshall, children Nathan Paradis of Cottonwood, Tanya (and Bill) Tyler of Dawson, Ashley (and Dan) Taveirne of Lynd, grandchildren Joey and Mason, siblings Becky (and Dave) Gifford, Jackie (and Denny) Dubbeldee, Maggie Novosad, Janet (and Jim) Kor, Alice (and Ron) Demuth, Larry (and Tammy) Paradis, Juanita (and Bruce) Bot, Suzie (and Mike) Gruhot, Charlie (and Miya) Paradis and Shirley Paradis and many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Trish and family, I'm so sorry to hear of the passing of your hard working husband and father. I always enjoyed having conversations with him and just enjoyed knowing him. He always made you feel like he was asking, What else can I do for you? I'll miss seeing him around helping someone getting things done. Mark and Wanda Paluch
