Interestingly, Ken overcame the circumstances of his birth, choosing for himself a life of service to city and country...

KISKER, Kenneth K. In Brookline, MA, entered into rest on Friday, January 13, 2012 after a long battle with cancer. With gratitude to hospice and the care of his loved ones, his wish to pass peacefully at home surrounded by family was granted. Ken was a 20-year US Navy veteran, a Pearl Harbor Survivor (USS Nevada) and the former Superintendent of the Brookline Fire and Police Department Wire Division. He received the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart for his service in the South Pacific, having fought for our country in every major battle. Ken has joined his wife of 56-years, Jeanne M. Gray Kisker of Brookline, and leaves behind his loving family – daughter Barbara J. Murphy and son-in-law Gerald J. Murphy, granddaughter Erin M. Murphy all of Brookline, his sisters Barbara L. Gaffney of Moon Township, PA, the late Anna Martha Heaton and his brother, the late Leo M. Seelig, both of OH. Ken is survived by many nieces and nephews who were dear to him. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Hospice of the North Shore & Greater Boston, 75 Sylvan Street, Suite B-102, Danvers, MA 01923. Visitation will be held on Tuesday morning in the Bell-O'Dea Funeral Home, 376 Washington St., BROOKLINE from 9:00 – 10:00 followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Mary of the Assumption Church at 10:30. Relatives and friends are kindly invited. Interment Walnut Hills Cemetery. Late member Stephen F. Rutledge Post # 864 V.F.W. and Brookline Post # 11 A.L.

But how can you be sure it's the SAME Kenneth Kermith Kisker? There could be dozens out there.
It probably is. His passing is probably why the picture just resurfaced.
WWII had a profound impact on a lot of people.
