Conservation Mourns the Loss of Kenneth Risenhoover- corrected link for Paypal The Conservation family in Oklahoma mourns the passing of Kenneth Risenhoover, who was serving as District Conservationist in Poteau at the time of his death this past Thursday. Funeral services were held over the weekend in Enterprise where he lived with his wife Kim. He was 57 years old.

From his Obituary we learn that "Ken graduated from Stigler High School later attending Eastern Oklahoma State College in 1973 in Wilburton and completing his education in 1975 at OSU in Stillwater with a degree in Ag Ed. A friend, Ronnie Rose, stated that during Ken's college years he only knew of Ken to have had one "B" in Speech. The rest of his grades were A's. He completed his student teaching in Colbert, Oklahoma. Immediately upon graduating he started his career on October 12, 1975, with the Natural Resources Conservation Services (NRCS); where he worked in Altus; Wilburton; and was currently employed in Poteau, at the time of his death, as the Leflore County District Conservationist, receiving many awards during his lifelong career."

Jamey Woods of the state office of the NRCS sent us the following email that gives detail of a memorial to honor the memory of Risenhoover. "To honor the memory and continue the legacy of Kenneth Risenhoover the Leflore County Conservation District and several of his friends and co-workers, with the blessing of his family, have set up a Kenneth Risenhoover Memorial Scholarship Fund. This scholarship will be coordinated by the Leflore County CD with the desires of his family at the forefront."
