Kenneth Bastien was born 9/14/1959 in Lewiston. Ken lived his entire life in Auburn until he bought his house in Wales. Ken worked at Quoddy Moc during high school graduating from Edward Little High School in 1977. In the 80s, Ken began working for the Auburn School Department as a custodian, moved to operations manager, and finally computer technician when he retired in 2019.
Ken’s passion was financial planning and investing. He helped countless staff navigate retirement and its financial planning. He credited his knowledge to his Uncle. Ken was a member of the Lewiston-Auburn Jaycees. Ken was also a valued member of the Sabattus Regional Credit Union Board of Trustees for the last several years.
Ken loved his many cat companions and after retiring he fostered several cats from the Androscoggin SPCA until they found their fur-ever homes. He went Christmas shopping every year and would deliver a carload of supplies to the Shelter in Lewiston.
