So sorry to hear about Kenneth. I remember hearing him play the piano and sing at the Lee Family reunions. His Mom and Dad used to be neighbors to my grandparents when I was growing up. My prayers are with his wife and kids and his Dad, Roland.

I have known Kenny and Martha for many years. We love the Lee family
Kenny definitely left a legacy of Gospel music. Kenny had a great talent of playing piano. Always enjoyed Kenny's piano playing and singing. The Gospel music world has truly lost a great artist.
Kenny will truly be missed but never forgotten.
Love you Kenny and Martha
Rickey and Victoria Kelley

Kenneth Lee will forever be my brother, as I look back and remember my friend. Kenneth was a fine outstanding father and husband and by far the greatest piano player of my time. Kenny has been a great example to all who knew him and loved his family very much. Kenneth, my brother, you will be missed here on earth by so many. I'm very fortunate to have been able to have such a wonderful friend in Kenneth Lamar Lee. May you rest in peace.
