Ken Henius, 57, went to his heavenly Father Wednesday, January 16, 2013. He passed away at home in Cave Creek, Ariz. surrounded by family and friends. The son of European immigrants, Curt and Andree Henius, Ken was an adventuresome spirit with a great zest for life.

He was an avid surfer and private pilot, building his own experimental plane and piloting it around California. For 10 years Ken made his home in Santa Barbara where his son Doah was born to his first wife; they moved soon afterward to Ashland, Ore. In 1997 he married his beloved Carley and they settled in Cave Creek, Ariz.

Ken loved to travel and saw much of the world. He was the founder of Allstar GSE and became a successful businessman. His great passions were building and flying RC airplanes. He loved gardening and being in nature. He always showed great devotion to his family.

He is survived by his wife, Carley; son, Doah; mom, Andree; brother, George and Ruth; brother, Philip of Santa Barbara, Calif.; aunt, Mariannne and John; his family in Europe; stepdaughter, Kimberly and granddaughter Aurora who called him Bopa. His dad, Curt Henius, preceded him in 2011.

A memorial celebration of his life will be announced at a later date. Godspeed Ken, you will be greatly missed.

Your spirit will be with us always!
