Kenneth Frank MacKay, age 91, passed away on Monday, March 11, 2024, at Lee's Summit Medical Center in Lee's Summit, Missouri. Born in Worcester, Massachusetts on January 27, 1933, he was the son of the late Calvin Oswald and Betsey Alice (Whittaker) MacKay.  Ken was raised in Worcester, where he graduated from the local High School. Ken enlisted in the United States Air Force, proudly serving his country during the Korean War.  He was stationed with the 4245th Field Maintenance Squadron, earning the rank of Staff Sergeant, before his honorable discharge in 1960.


Ken began his career with Raytheon, taking a position in the quality assurance department of their Norwood, Massachusetts location.  Ken maintained his position with Raytheon until his retirement.
