One of the most naturally funny men I ever knew. He and Alice Loved us from the time we moved to GA. Fond memories of his great laugh, his dapper wardrobe of solid color Izod sweaters and listening to ballgames by his small radio on Alice’ screened front porch. Always could make my mother laugh till she cried. He was a true southern gentleman.

Alice, I feel such a loss of my long time friend. He was a friend to everyone. i remember how he visited Mrs Reeves in the nursing home every day and how he reminded me that he was one month older than me every time I saw him. We grew up together and remained friends. God blessed us both. He will be missed by all who knew him. I send my love to you.

R I P my friend. Kenneth is a man who loved his Lord. I can remember so many times that something he would say or do touched my life so much. He put his heart into making sure that the choir was ready for Sunday morning. He couldn’t wait to sing to Jesus. He can now sing a one on one concert for Jesus. We loved you. Rest In Peace you wonderful servant of God.
