Kenneth Lee Decker, CPA, passed away from heart failure peacefully and surrounded by family, on December 13, 2020, at the age of 74.

Kenneth's life was lived with purpose, hope, and a belief he could and should make a difference. In 1981, he joined Decker & Associates and launch Decker Financial, his international tax practice. As President of Decker & Associates, Kenneth published Real Life Financial Mathematics and partnered with 50+ Texas school districts to train teachers on the new curriculum. Since 2017, more than 12,000 Texas high school students have taken this one-year, critical-thinking, problem-solving, and life-changing financial planning course.

Kenneth held credentials as a Certified Public Accountant, Personal Financial Specialist, and Certified Financial Planner. He was an active member of the Texas CPA Society and served as a speaker at several TXCPA Houston events.

A celebration of Kenneth's incredible life will be scheduled at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Financial Mentors of America (10655 Memorial Dr. Houston TX, 77024 or www.financialmentors.org).
