Ken and Dedi Rapp have been Clary Lake shore owners and Association members for as long as I can remember. The family camp, originally built by Ken’s parents Bill & Catherine Rapp on property purchased from Paul MacDonald in 1967, is over on the northeast shore of Clary Lake, next north of Thomas & Delph Gillette. Ken’s daughter Jennifer Rapp Goyet reached out to me this morning to inform me of her father’s passing. Here is Ken’s Obituary:
