Kenneth H. Plummer


Kenneth H. Plummer, 80, passed away on Saturday, July 31, 2021 at his home while working in his garage. He was born in Ballston Spa, NY on December 28, 1940 to J. Howard and Marjorie Plummer.

Ken worked for the Town of Ballston for 25 years, retiring in 1995. He could often be seen outside mowing his lawn or working on his many tractors. The unofficial mayor of Hop City Road, Ken liked to visit with his neighbors and friends who often stopped by to see him and have a cup of coffee. He enjoyed watching the tractor pulls at the Saratoga County Fair and Friday night racing at the Albany Saratoga Speedway in Malta.

He was predeceased by his parents J. Howard and Marjorie Plummer, and his sister Dorothy Jean Gatzendorfer. Ken is survived by his sons Warren Plummer (Cherie) and Kenneth Plummer (Carolyn); grandchildren Adam and Madelynn; great grandson Boux; several nieces and nephews; and his many close friends who looked in on him.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a graveside service at 1pm on Thursday August 5, 2021 at Sweetman Cemetery, Sweetman Road, Charlton. Memorial contributions in memory of Ken may be made to the Burnt Hills Fire Department, 811 Saratoga Road, Burnt Hills, NY 12027.

Sad to hear the passing of a long time friend. A man of many skills.

Jim & Sue Towne

Kenny was a dear friend who will be sorely missed by Sue and by me. There are too may stories to tell of his many instances of kindness and neighborliness to recount-his friendship knew no bounds or limits. His friendship was a gift.

And the obituary is wrong. Kenny wasn't the Mayor of Hop City, he was the de facto Mayor of Burnt Hills, always looking after the entire Burnt Hills neighborhood and the well being of us all! We will miss him deeply.

Safe journey good friend.
