Honorable Kenneth C. Santos
Kenneth C. Santos was born to Rosalia Cruz and Herman Santos on September 11, 1962. He was then reared by his great aunt & uncle, Carmen Rojas & Crispolu Remetio, until the age of nine. During this time, Ken attended Tamuning Elementary. When he turned nine, Ken went to stay with his grandparents, Maria Rojas & Jesus Cruz. He stayed with them until the age of eighteen.
During his stay with his grandparents, he continued his education at Tamuning Elementary, moved on to Dededo Middle School, and then graduated from John F. Kennedy High School in 1980. He was raised to be a kind, honest and hardworking individual.
At the age of eighteen he married, Judy Mundo. Together they had four beautiful children. Ken also started coaching baseball at the age of 18. Since then he has been a hardworking husband, a loving father, and a dedicated coach.
For the past 31 years, Ken has been through a lot and has done a lot. Becoming a father of four kept him busy. Between being a husband, a father, a coach and an employee, Ken definitely had his hands full. Ken was hard working; he would work several jobs at a time sometimes just to make ends meet. He proved to be a jack of all trades working jobs that were so different from each other. From working at the Tamuning-Tumon- Harmon Mayor’s office as a Maintenance Supervisor under the Alfredo Dungca administration, to working in a warehouse as a Fork Lift Operator at NEX, to working as a One-to-One Aide at different public schools on the island, and now for the past six years he has been guarding our federal buildings under the employment of Akal Security.
Even though he changed his occupation from time to time, Ken continued coaching baseball, not just for the Guam Little League, but for the Guam Amateur and Masters as well. Up until this day, Ken coaches three different baseball teams, from youth to grown men. However, not only does he coach, but thanks to the Guam Masters League, Ken gets to play as well.
Ken was always a caring and helpful person. He would lend a hand to anyone in need. He opened his doors to many people who needed a place to stay, his ears to many who needed to talk, but most of all, troubled teens who needed someone to show they cared. Ken may have been a father of four, and now grandfather to twelve, but to Ken he was a father to many. Even if he did not have much, Ken would always give what he could.
