He loved to sit with visitors in Memory Lane Antiques, which he ran with his wife, Eileen Mary Enos, after taking the business over from his sister in the 1980s. He and Eileen were married Sept. 1, 1979. He had wanted to move back to Texas after his many military jaunts, and came to Buda to take over Memory Lane Antiques from his sister, Dorothy Franks and her husband, Lawrence Franks. Ken would talk to anyone in the store about his love of flyin~ his desire to travel to the wine regions of Europe, and his children and grand- children. Ken was a small-town boy, born Nov. 29, 1931 in Halls- villc, Harrison County, Texas. His love of the country came out as he raised miniature donkeys, pampering them as he hand-fed them and showed them off to visitors. He also had a passion for fishing and hunting. Besides seeing him in Memory Lane Antiques, Ken was also known as the man behind Budafest, serving for more than a decade as the man who registered hun- dreds of vendors each year. Ken was a military man, rising to the rank of Lieuten- ant Colonel in the Marine Corps. He first went into the military as an enlisted man, serving in Korea. He returned to the U.S., went through the Marine Corps Fighter Pilot program and then returned i to Korea as a fighter pilot, and later serving as a pilot in WmtNam. He also served as a military attachd in Jamaica. Ken is fondly remem- bered by his two children, son James D. Coniey of San Diego, CA-, daughter Leigh Ann Coniey Raley of Yucaipa, CA, and grandchildren Elodie Coniey of San Diego, and Nathan and Jesse Raley of Yucaipa, and two stepsons, Matthew Enos of Austin and Mark Enos of California. His beloved niece linda Chancel- lor of Houston and beloved nephew Kirk Faust of Gold- thwaite were also considered "part of the family." The children remember traveling summers to go to "Camp Dad," where Ken took them on many harrowing ad- ventures. His famous words, no matter what the predica- ment? =It was the best thing that could have happened." Ken was predeceased by his parents, Ruby Armstrong Couley and J.H Coniey, and his sister, Dorothy Franks. In Ueu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the Buda United Methodist Church and the American Cancer Society.
