Kenneth A. Gadway, 71, of Mineville, N.Y., passed away at UVM Health Network at Elizabethtown Community Hospital on Sept. 6, 2018, following a brief illness. Born in Mooers Forks, N.Y., on Jan. 17, 1947, he was one of four children born to the late Theresa (Nephew) and Arthur Gadway. He graduated from Mineville High School in 1967 and worked for International Paper in a career that spanned 41 years, before retiring in 2008.
Ken married the love of his life, Deborah Collins, in 1991. He was an avid sports fan and loved the Boston Red Sox and Washington Redskins. Ken, along with his brothers, was often the life of the party at family gatherings. He leaves behind many fond memories of trips to Fenway Park and long talks around the table.

He was predeceased by his brothers-in-law, Ernest DuRoss and Robert LaMour.
