I grew up in the '70s in a fatherless home; but fortunately for me God was looking down and saw fit that the Garcias- Kenny, his two brothers, Randy and Russell, and their Mom and Dad, Ruth and Joe- were my neighbors. They took me in like a family member, which resulted in some of my fondest child-hood memories. The first things I learned on the guitar were from Kenny and Randy! I feel like I have lost a family member with the passing of Kenny. I wrote the following song a few months ago:

"I know a man, tall and strong
Not my father, but he was
a Dad… ‘cause he loved me

Not with words, that he’d say
But in the time that he gave
To a little boy filled with joy...
Shootin’ pool, playin’ guitar
Water skiing, smoking cigars

Those are the days I’m grateful for
Your Mom and dad, and brothers too/two
Learnin’ to be cool like Randy
Uncle Russell’s barbecue
Throwin’ parties, havin’ fun
Yeah, at the Garcia’s, I was loved"

Such a beautiful soul.
You always made me laugh. I loved sharing jokes with you, and your kindness was genuine. I'll always remember that you gave me my very first JJ Watt Jersey, I still wear it with pride and think of you surprising me that day.
I loved you, and I am very glad that I was a part of your life.
RIP my dear friend.
