  • Note: Kenneth B. Hurst was my great grandfather. He was born on July 19, 1923
    in Kaukauna, WI. He died on March 19, 1996. His father was Bernard Augustine
    Hurst and his mother was Mary (Meek) Jansen. He grew up in little Chute and
    had 4 brothers and 2 sisters.
    He went to High School at St. John's in little Chute, and probably
    went to class in the same rooms I do now. In high school he loved boxing and
    football. He was a left-handed boxer, and he was captain of the boxing team 3
    out of 4 years. His position in football was guard. He graduated high school in
    1941.
    Shortly after graduation he enlisted into the United States Marine
    Corps. He attained the rank of Corporal in the Marine Corps. He fought in World
    War II, in the Pacific Islands. In the war, he carried a Browning Automatic Rifle, it
    was one of the most dangerous weapons and positions in his platoon in World
    War II. Some of the Islands he fought on were Tarawa, Kwajalein and
    Guadalcanal.
    After the war, he married his high school sweetheart Marcella Angeline
    Webb (Great Grandma Tiny), on August 24, 1944 in St. John Nepomucene, little
    Chute, WI. When they were first married they rented the second floor of a house
    on Wilson Street in little Chute. Two years later they bought a double lot on the
    corner of East lincoln and Harrison (600 East lincoln), and built a house there and
    lived there from 1947-1978. In 1978 they moved to 1520 West Wisconsin Avenue
    in Little Chute.
    He was the proud father of 11 children. His second born Donald died as a
    baby at 6 weeks of an intestinal blockage/obstruction. His first born son, Daniel
    Hurst is my Grandpa, my dad Jason's dad.
    Kenneth B. Hurst was a Pattern Maker. He built many, many kinds of casts
    from gears to car engine frames. Sometimes he even would make a mold for a
    missile tip. He was offered a job that would let him earn a fortune and travel
    around the country or the world, but he denied the job. He said he already
    traveled the world in the marines and was not interested in doing that again. He
    enjoyed the small town of Little Chute and being with his family. Kenneth retired
    as a Master Pattern Maker.
    For hobbies he enjoyed fishing. My grandpa introduced him to golf, he
    loved golf so muchI Before he started to golf, he used to make fun of my grandpa
    for going golfing. But in the end he loved the sport of golf too!
