Boyd sales veteran Quiggins dies

Kenneth Quiggins Sr., a veteran independent furniture sales representative who worked with Boyd Specialty Sleep for more than 20 years, died Nov. 4 at his home in Jeffersonville, Ind. He was 72.

“Ken was with us going back to the waterbed days and he was always a gentleman with a great set of ethics,” said Denny Boyd, Boyd Specialty Sleep president. “He was a true relationship salesman who connected easily with anyone. His customers were his friends and they treated him like family. He was a great friend to many of us and will be missed. Our sales meetings will not be the same without Ken.”

Quiggins was a member of the Knights of Columbus and the Honorable Order of Kentucky Colonels. He is survived by his wife of 29 years, Kathleen; children, Beverly Parkerson, Kenneth Quiggins Jr., Denise Roby and Pamela Wooten; a brother, Thomas Quiggins; seven grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.

Services were held in Quiggins’ birthplace, Louisville, Ky. The family has suggested that donations be made to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals or to Special Olympics.
