Ken and Carol owned Oak Lawn since starting the company in 1965. In early 2000’s Ken’s health kept him from the work he was used to and after his passing the family made the decision to take the next step and bring Mark, Matt, and Katie on as owners along with Carol.

On a daily basis you can find Mark, Matt, and Katie working together at Oak Lawn Estates. Carol keeps a close eye on the day-to-day to make sure everything is running with the standard our residents have come to expect. Depending on the day you can sometimes find some of the family’s other grandchildren, as well as the next generation (Katie’s children) helping out in the community or office.
