Kenneth A. Hatch passed away peacefully on Friday, October 21, 2022 after a lengthy battle with kidney disease. He was surrounded by his loving family as God took him home.

He was a loving father and is survived by his son, William Hatch of Middleboro, his two daughters, Pamela Ames of Middleboro and Sharon Hatch of Middleboro. His son-in-law Steve Pearl of Middleboro and a sister-in-law Barbara Ruhmpohl of Wareham. He was the loving grandpa of 4 grandchildren: Michael Robillard of Maine, Stephanie Robillard of Middleboro, Jordan Pearl of Middleboro and Julia Pearl . He enjoyed being a grandpa as well as being an uncle. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews. He was the uncle of the late Charles Hatch of New Hampshire. He was the son of the late Stanley Hatch and Laura {Colby} Hatch and the brother of the late Wilbur Hatch. Most of all, he was the loving husband of the late Helen E {Ruhmpohl} Hatch.  He married Helen in 1964 and they began their family in 1965. Kenneth was born in Middleboro on March 11, 1933 and resided in Middleboro all his life with the exception of the years he was in the service. He joined the United States Army in 1952 and served until 1955. He proudly served our country in the Korean War.

He worked for Modern Cleaners in Middleboro where he became the owner in 1976. He sold the business in 1980 to Twinkle Cleaners and continued to work for them until he retired in 2000. During his retirement, he enjoyed watching his game shows, NASCAR and time spent with family. He enjoyed playing cards: Go Fish and UNO. He had two two of his favorite people to play each of these games with. He liked to putter around the house to find things to tinker with. He also enjoyed being outside to putter around the yard whether it would be yard work, working in his garden, tinkering with things in the yard or just relaxing by feeding the chipmunks or any other critter that was out in the yard. He loved animals as well. He was not actively involved with a church but did enjoy going or watching a service online when he could. He loved to read Our Daily Bread where he would spend his quiet times reading that as he found peace and comfort; more so towards the end. Kenneth had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone; especially his family. He touched many lives and was well liked and loved by many.  From family, friends of family to all that took part in his care. He will be greatly missed.
