  • I have known kennymost ofmy life. He was a good friend of my family. Kenny always had a smile on his face and was such a great guy to know. My prayers and condolences go to his family. May you rest peacefully in heaven til we meet again my friend

  • My condolences to Kenny’s family, I have know Kenny since I was 15 years old and he was always a good friend to me. He was the type of person to give someone his oversized jacket even if that mean he would go cold. He was a kind soul that always had a smile on his face. I had the privilege to coach his nephews Chris & Toney in football and he would always be at the games and practices. Rest easy my friend until we see each other again.

  • I’ve known Kenny most of my life, and he will always hold a special place in my heart. He’s been with me through the good and bad, and no matter what always had a smile on his face. You could be having the worst day ever, and he’d make you forget about it. Even though we had lost touch over the past few years, I know I could have called him anytime for anything, and he’d be there. I just hope he felt the same about me.

    Kenny, I will miss you so much, and wish there was something I could do. To make this go away, and bring you back to us. You will be missed for your laugh, goofy grin, attitude, and your giant heart!! Please watch over us, and be our guardian angel. Rest In Peace, another soul taken way too young.

  • We have know Kenny since he was just a little guy of about 4 to 5 years old. He was in our wedding as a ring bearer so long ago. He had the cutest little smile & a big heart than and as he got older he never lost that smile or his big heart. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him. May you rest in peace and may you watch over all of those you have left behind.
