Kenneth was born on May 3, 1956, in Madelia, MN, the son of James and Fern (Fenske) Matteson. He attended Blue Earth Area Schools. Kenneth was also a member of the Army National Guard. He married Ruth Drivdahl on September 21, 2013 in Bertha, MN. The two kept coming back to each other, dating several times in their youth, until they finally reunited and got married.

Kenneth was a trucker and loved being on the road. He also enjoyed listening to country music, watching TV, sitting on the deck enjoying the outdoors, and having bonfires (even though he almost set himself on fire a few times). Kenneth loved eagles. He also loved spending time with his dog, Abbi.

He is survived by his wife, Ruth (Drivdahl) Matteson; son, Kenneth Jr.; daughter, Amanda Guerra; step-children, Matthew Koscielski, Melodie Pope, and Micah Pope; sister, Linda Taylor; and 7 step-grandchildren.

Kenneth is preceded in death by his parents, and brother, Samuel Matteson, whom he loved dearly.
