He is survived by his wife Karinda Condray of Lubbock; brother and sister-in-law Carl and Jan Condray of Georgetown; and a son, from previous marriage to Nora Steen, Wes and his husband Garrett Condray-Wright of Lubbock. Additionally, he is survived by his step-children Clay Hatfield of Austin, and Amanda and Kevin Werts of Lubbock; one grandchild, Henry; nephew, Sterling Condray of Chicago; niece, Kay Sea and Brian Bailey of Kotzebue, AK; Bobbie and Kevin Jones of Round Rock; godchild, Jessica and Eric Rauch of Amarillo; several cousins, great nieces and nephews and many, many wonderful friends and colleagues.

Ken graduated from Texas Tech University with a degree in Architecture in 1984. He was founder and principal owner of Condray Design Group which was founded in 1992, and specializes in healthcare, religious, and educational facilities.

He loved exploring the world, listening to music, and reading books with his dog Piper. Ken was a quiet giant whose kindness and love touched so many individuals in the community. His legacy will live on, not only through the many buildings he designed, but through the lives of all he met and loved.
