He was born in Ticonderoga on July 21, 1945, the son of Charles and Jenny (Newman) St. Andrews.
Ken was a hard-working man, loved his family and friends and made any gathering a party. He loved cooking, fishing, and a good war or western movie. He was a devoted fan of the New York Giants. Ken loved making others laugh and have a good time whether it was a good story or an outrageous game that he just thought of. Ken also enjoyed a cold Genesee beer and always had one ready for visitors.
Survivors include his daughters, Adrienne St. Andrews and Kendra Keenum; son-in-law, Jason Keenum; long time companion, Elaine St. Pierre, all of Plattsburgh. Ken is also survived by his beloved granddaughter, his Princess, McKenna.
