HARPSWELL – The Lord was joined by Sumner “Ken” Kennard Wiley Jr., 85 years young, on Sept 17th 2015.

He is survived by his loving wife of 63 years, Ida Moreshead Wiley, his Daughter Sylvia K.Wiley, his son in-law Chris Muth, Sister Barbara White and so many loving nieces and nephews. He was the most wonderful father and husband.

In 2000, Ken and Ida retired to their ancestral home in Harpswell, Maine after living for 30 years in Cumberland. He was a man of great faith and integrity. He still was very close to his best friend from University of Maine College years (1948 to 1952), Chett Worthylake. As Chett was quoted saying: “He never did anything wrong, he always did the right thing.”

There will be a celebration of his life at the Elijah Kellogg Congregational Church in Harpswell, Maine on Saturday, September 26th at 3:00 pm.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, 1 Bowdoin Mill Island Suite 300, Topsham, Maine 04086, or to Heifer.org to honor his love of honey bees and all things farming.
