Kenny and I have been friends since 4th grade at Johnson School. I can literally go on for hours and hours with stories about Kenny and I and ours friends. I can remember Kenny and my dad use to arm wrestle all the time when Kenny would come over to our house. Kenny always had the coolest cars and I of course had my own car and we and all of our friends would do a lot of street racing. One story that comes to mind is when I was on the verge of losing my drive license, somebody wanted to race me in my car and I was to scared to get caught racing so I asked Kenny to drive my car to race the guy on Highway 61 and Kenny won the race for me in my car, I have so many stories but shouldn't be told in this forum.
Kenny was the ultimate prankster and has the way of telling a story that would leave you in tears from laughing. I have the pleasure of knowing his entire family. Anytime I needed help with anything he was always there. I love him and will miss greatly!!!!

I have fond memories spent with Kenny like racing cars on the street or all of us friends hanging out together. Then there was the time I rode home with Kenny from the Durant Polka Fest and he was singing Riders On The Storm all the way home.

Friends sometimes drift apart but memories last forever.

You will be missed.

My condolences to the family.

My heart got heavy when I heard about Kenny. Every Friday and Saturday night, I would use my sister's 1972 White Delta 88 Oldsmobile. Better known in my circle of friends as the "White Lighting". I would pick up my other five friends and we would stop at the Mascot Gas Station. They would never card, Lol. Kenny would always have to ride shotgun. His job was to control the 8 Track Tape Player that plugged into the cigarette lighter. I only had one 8 Track, the first album by Rush. We would listen to it approximately three times in one night, just driving the ones and around town. When I showed up one Friday night with a Black Sabbath 8 Track, I didn't have to chip in for my part of the beer, the guys were that happy.

Then there was a time the six of us were together and someone else drove. That person drove up a guide wire for a pole, and the car got stuck. We were up in the air, hooked on the wire.

I think I'll let Kenny tell you the rest of that story.

Until we meet again my friend. Thanks for the memories.

PS, ask God if he has an 8 Track Tape Player, I'll bring the tapes.

With Love, to you and your family,

Bob and Marty Guinn.

Best man in my wedding, best times for many years. I could write a novel on our shenanigans and I couldn’t have been in better company. Kenny was the best negotiator with PD when we were in trouble on many occasions . I’ll never forget the time I was handcuffed by Arsenal PD and I looked back and Kenny was lighting a cigarette for one of the cops, I just failed a sobriety test and had no ID. Yea they let us go after a brief negotiation and Kenny promised to take me home. The jokes we played on each other was endless. I stole his new pioneer stereo out of his truck while he was at the dentist getting a check up and drove up next to him at a stoplight and offered to sell it to him. He switched around the plug wires on my truck the following day. Working on our muscle cars, his bad a$$ 442, street racing, girls, parties, playing pool and life was good. We participated in some great parties and one of the best ended up with a car at the bottom of an in ground pool. We grew apart over the years but we never forgot how we became the men who we are today, soul brothers for sure.
TO, BO, KO will be missed , condolences to the entire family EO

I’m saddened to hear that Kenny passed away. We were great friends for several years, and then kind of lost track. I was with Kenny when he flew in a plane for the first time; a trip to Las Vegas that I still recall vividly. We were roommates for a few months in the 80’s, and we had a lot of great times. Our times on the golf course were classic. Kenny was one of a kind. He’ll certainly be missed. Janell, you and your family are in my prayers during this difficult time. God bless all of you.

I really loved hanging out with Kenny. His laugh always made me laugh. I don't ever recall him ever being sad or mad -- he was always a happy person and he will definitely be missed by those who knew and loved him. He was a shining star!
