Kenneth A. Confer, 77, of State College, passed away at the Mount Nittany Medical Center on Thursday, October 4, 2018. Born on August 12, 1941, in Bellefonte, he was the son of the late Alton P. & Eleanor S. Houser Confer. On February 10, 1961, in State College, he married Mildred “Millie” Surovec. Millie passed away on November 9, 2004.
Kenneth was a 1959 graduate of State College High School. He was enlisted in the US Army in 1964 and earned the rank of SP-4 before his honorable discharge in 1967.
After serving in the military, Kenneth was a truck driver for various companies. He then became an Operator/Instructor for Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, retiring in 2003 after 27 years of service.
