Kenneth Brake Obituary

Kenneth Henry Brake, a resident of Laurel, MD from 1969 to 2008, formerly lived in Kansas, died March 24, 2008, at his residence.

He was born March 21, 1934, in Kinsley, KS, son of the late Anthony J. and Rose Marie (Nosal) Brake.  He was a graduate of Sts. Peter & Paul School, St. Joseph’s Military Academy, Hutchinson Community College, and Wichita State University.  He worked 30 years as an accounting auditor for the Government Accountability Office and worked for the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation.  He was a member of St. Mary of the Mills Catholic Church and the Knights of Columbus, and an active volunteer with the City of Laurel.
