- About Us
Kenneth Sevick, 77, of Rogers, Arkansas went to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at Circle of Life Legacy Village in Bentonville, Arkansas. He was born June 18, 1940 in Chicago, Illinois to Charles and Grace Jaglowski Sevick.
He proudly served in the United States Navy. He then went on to build Sevick Construction. When life shifted gears, he went to school and became a certified photographer, where he won many awards. He belonged to Professional Photographers of America, Professional Photographers of California, Inland Empire Professional Photographers and several other associations. This was when he met his wife, Jenny. Within the California organization, he was a “Yellow Jacket” at West Coast Schools. He assisted at every session so that others could learn the craft. In 1995, he was presented with the Paul Kennedy Award for “Outstanding
Service to the Profession.” Only twenty-five of these awards were made before the mold was defaced. The medallion is made from silver reclaimed from film and paper chemicals that are used to produce the product of the profession—photographs. When another chain of events happened, he went back to school and became a chef and a pastry chef. Everyone, everywhere soon learned why a church member nicknamed him “The Cheesecake Man.
He was never one to sit around idle. In his last years, he tried to learn to make pictures out of wood. He also loved to draw. His love of fishing kept him going in his last years on earth.
Ken was a very devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend. He was preceded in death by his parents and grandparents.
His faith was always strong and now he is with Jesus.
Kenneth is survived by his wife, Jenifer Larson Sevick; two daughters, Heather (Bo) Williams of St. Louis and Amanda “Mandee” Swanson of Los Angeles. Also surviving him arehis siblings: Robert (Laura) Sevick, Renee (Glenn) Bailey, Gail (Pat) Tuley, Gary Sevick, Grace (Steven) Schorr & Dawn Sevick; grandchildren: Madison Williams, Haley Williams, and Dexton Sanchez (due May 22); cousins: Allen Jaglowski, Jan Olesky, Ed Halter, Rosemary Eling, Margaret Stayart and Melody Rosin; and many nieces and nephews.
Because of his love of Southern California and the Pacific Ocean, we will abide by his wishes to scatter his ashes there at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the photographic or culinary scholarship fund of your choice.
