Ken Robertson finished his earthly adventure and moved onto the non-physical on February 17, 2024. He is succeeded by his wife of 41 years, Faith Robertson, son, Kenny Robertson, and granddaughter, Juliette Rogers. His brother, Stanley Robertson, sister-in-law, Sandra Robertson, nephew, Michael Robertson, and nieces Michelle Robertson, Margot Huskey and Sarah Nicole. Sister-in-law, Gina Stickley, and brother-in-law, Glenn Stickley and nephew, Carter Stickley. Brother-in-laws Donovan McCulloch, Billy McCullouch and Randy McCullouch.

He was proceeded by his mother and father, Mary and Harold Robertson and 2 siblings born before him and his brother. Father-in-law, Scotty McCullouch, and mother-in-law, Edith McCullouch.

Ken was born in Bloomington Indiana, to Mary and Harold and lived there till he was 23. Ken develop his love for music playing the tuba in the high school marching and jazz, bands in Bloomington and won the prestigious John Phillips Sousa award his last year of high school. He leaves behind many good friends, neighbors and family in Bloomington. I know that “The Cats that Time Forgot” we’ll feel his loss.

Ken moved from Bloomington with his friend Billy Ray to Houston on the hunt for money and a career. This is where he met the love of his life and began his new adventure. They married on Valentine’s Day and his son was born a few years later. They spent several more years in Texas living in San Antonio and Dallas/Fort Worth also. They moved to Bentonville Arkansas in 2002. Shortly after that he applied at Walmart for a modular specialist job. He loved Walmart and his Walmart peeps! He moved to Mod Core where he trained and supported associates on the space planning tool. And that is what he did for the next 13 years. After moving on from Walmart to Cantatix, he continued to train around the nation and in several countries. He did love his impact on a student’s career by just teaching them this tool. He would say the night before training “I’m going to make people more marketable“. He was brilliant at his knowledge of space management in the retail world.

Ken was probably the most honest and yet tactful person you would ever meet but always push the envelope to get a good smile or laugh. He was the most loving husband and father in this universe. Many times he would tell his wife you are my world, and he meant it. His family was very special to him and often filled his stories when he would chat with you. He loved music and even owned, and played many instruments. Couldn’t hold him back from a good concert. He’s seen most all the greats of rock ‘n’ roll with his wife by his side. It was not uncommon for him to take a three city trip to see his favorite band, Yes.
