MECHANICVILLE - Kenneth Ellsworth, 94, of Grand Street and lifelong resident of Mechanicville, died peacefully at Wesley Health Care Center on Wednesday, May 13, 2020 after a long illness. Born in Cambridge, NY on December 22, 1925, son of the late Walter and Annie Dinsmore Ellsworth, Ken was a 1944 graduate of Mechanicville High School.
Ken joined the US Army and served during Pacific Theater of World War II. He was honorably discharged shortly after the war ended, in November 1946.
Ken worked as a mail carrier for the USPS, Mechanicville office, for 30 years. He was also a member of the W. L. Howland Co. #5 Fire Department(Chemmies), a charter member of the John Ahearn Rescue Squad and a longtime member of the Mechanicville VFW, Post 6328. He was also a member of St. Luke's Episcopal Church(St. Luke's on the Hill).
He was predeceased by his wife of 32 years, Margaret Gargano Ellsworth, who died in 1992.
Survivors include his daughter and son in law, Elizabeth and Douglas Voelker, cherished granddaughter Kristin Voelker, as well as several nieces and nephews.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, graveside services including military honors at Hudson View Cemetery will be private and held at the convenience of the family. During this extremely difficult time, we strongly encourage friends and family to visit to share condolences, photos you may have and memories of Ken you have, with his family.

I am so sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. During my time at Wesley, I cherished my time with Ken talking about his favorite movies. I will hold those special moments close to me and think back on my time with Ken fondly. Allison (or “Red” as he always called me)
