Kenneth L. Robbins, 99, passed away on May 8, 2019. He was born in Zion, Ill., grew up in Oconomowoc, and lived most of his life in Waterford before moving to Brookfield.

Following the war he worked for the National Tea Company and Brownberry Bread. In 1963, Ken and Mickey purchased the Dog n Suds Drive-In in Burlington that they ran until 1982 when Ken retired. He didn’t stay retired for long and soon started driving school bus for Waterford Public High School. He especially enjoyed driving the forensics team and was often their requested driver.

Ken is survived by his children, Lynne (Peter) Glick, Ken (Sue) Robbins, and Judy (Eric) Schultz; 10 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren as well as one sister, Phyllis (Robbins) Russell. Ken was most proud that all of his children and grandchildren graduated from college.
