  1. Kenny was such an awesome guy. We had the pleasure of meeting him when he did concrete work for us. He was a hard worker and took pride in his work (which he was very good at). We spent many an evening after the work was done for the day, talking about life and family. You could see the sparkle in his eyes as he spoke about his family – the love resonated. Even after the job was done he stopped by to visit and we toasted to a job well done. He had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone.
    My sincere condolences to you all.

    I knew you back when we were young. You played music with Connie and Tim. We used to live by each other. You were such a fun guy. RIP Kenny!

  5. Kenny your love for you kids and grandchildren showed what kind of father and grandfather you were. God seems to take the best. I know you will watch your children and grandchildren from above. Although their hearts are broken they have the memories made with you. You were a great man and very hard working. Time to rest, don’t give my mom too hard of a time up there. I know your sense of humor. God bless and fly high!

  6. Tim and family, I’m so sorry for the loss of your dad. May God give you all strength and comfort during this time and after. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Death takes the body. God takes the soul. Our minds hold the memories. Our heart keeps the love. Our faith let’s us know we will meet again.
    My prayers are for his family and everyone who knew him. 🙏🏻
