    Kenneth's mother, Hazel, passed away in 1996 and his father, Eugene, passed away in 1989.

    In the 1940 census, Kenneth was the only child.

    ok, let's at least see if we can find an aunt/uncle, cousin or other distant relative.

    A few bits I found.

    The address history I found for Kenneth E. Butzer covers Lancaster, Kutztown, and Reading, all of Pennsylvania.

    I did find this interesting news article in the Intelligencer Journal / Lancaster New Era from November 19, 2009 that says:

    I'm wondering if this could be Kenneth E. Butzer's son? 210 S. Prince Street is apparently the location of a ministry and homeless outreach center so if it is, perhaps this is why he is not able to claim his father, or maybe doesn't even know?

    I also found this Reading Eagle Press post on the search for Kenneth E. Butzer's next of kin: Link here.

    If I follow the trail of Kenneth E. Butzer's full name being Kenneth Eugene Butzer (not confirmed), I have so far only found this listing which could be another person completely since it is from Nevada with no other information such as possible age:

    I might be chasing down too distant a path, but I spent some time researching Kenneth B. Butzer's father's line. Hopefully it's the right Eugene Butzer!

    Going backwards:

    1940 census (link here): Eugene Butzer is married to Hasel Butzer with one son, Kenneth Butzer in East Cocalico Township, Lancaster, PA.

    1930 census (link here): Eugene Butzer is a lodger in the Hicks household in Ephrata, PA.

    1920 census (link here): Eugene Butzer is the son of Ellis W. Butzer and Mary Butzer with older brother Emory C. Butzer and younger sister Florence Butzer, all in Lancaster, PA.

    1910 census (link here): Eugene S. B. Butzer is the son of Elis A. Butzer (spelling and middle initial differ from 1920) and Mary Butzer with older brother Henry C. Butzer (differs from "Emory C. Butzer" in 1920), all in Lititz, Lancaster, PA.

    For Emory, I found an SSDI listing.

    For Florence, I found this death record (link here):
    I haven't found much else on Florence who would have been Kenneth B. Butzer's aunt. Having exhausted direct uncles and aunts, I decided to look into Florence's husband who would have been Kenneth B. Butzer's uncle by marriage.

    I found this obituary listing for Carl's brother, Bruce D. Snavely, Sr. of Lititz, PA in the Intelligencer Journal / Lancaster New Era from Jun 29, 2010:

    From the same newspaper, a BS (possibly BDS Jr. mentioned in the obituary) was in a car accident in April 2011:

    I found a BS of Ephrata with that same address, but no phone number. PM'ing to raine and nemo's mom in case it is of use. After all of this, BS would still be a cousin by marriage. I'm not sure the distant relationship will be of help, but worth trying? Maybe he will know about Kenneth Eugene Butzer, Jr. of the same local area mentioned in the previous post?
