Ken Foose Obituary, funeral arrangement, any GoFundMe page

The family are yet to make public the obituary and funeral arrangements.

A GoFundMe was created by the family of the deceased, it reads;

August 31 2020 Kenneth W Foose passed away suddenly.

Ken Foose the zooligist, animal lover, owner of Exotic Pets Las Vegas and our father (Ashley and Isaac Foose).

This fundraiser was created to help with memorial preparations and funeral service expenses. The arrangements will be determined by the budget his kids have to work with.

This gofundme was created by his surviving daughter Ashley Foose.
Please consider donating so we can give my dad the memorial he deserves.

Thank you


My father, Ken Foose was a giver!!
He had a huge heart!!
And that didn’t stop in death!!
I have given permission as next of kin for some of his body to be donated to people who need organs/body parts etc.
That being said, I have decided cremating him will be the best option.
So I re-adjusted the goal and it’s now at $2,000 instead of $5000 because I am choosing to cremate and also saving money by having a memorial at his home.
(Which I think he would love more than a church)
The goal is nearly halfway!


So after pricing funeral homes around Las Vegas the price I am being quoted just to cremate my father starts at $2500, so unfortunately I need to raise the goal back up. Thank you still for all your support and donations every penny will help so much!

This post will be updated with more information as they are made available and public.

Deeply saddened to hear that my friend Ken Foose died.

Ken ran the world’s coolest pet shop, Exotic Pets, and was deeply involved the reptile husbandry world.

The most important thing is that he deeply cared about animals, would never sell to someone who wasn’t ready for it

Ken Foose a dear friend, amazing contributor to the herpetological community who had an incredible life and an enormous passion for animals passed away last night. I’ll never forget how star struck I was when I met him and the genuine and rambunctious personality he had.
