Sincere sympathy to you and your family. My grandmother and Kenneth’s grandmothers were sisters. I have fond memories of his mother, father and Aunt Betty. We would visit Aunt Lissie and Uncle Byce on Sunday afternoons. So sad for your loss. He was a terrific guy.

I met Kenneth through youth baseball back in the 90’s and ended up coaching Tim on a Traveling Team which my son Miles, played
on as well. We played about 50 games plus during the spring and
summer months, traveled all over with twelve other families and had loads of fun. Kenneth loved his family and devoted himself to
them, he never met a stranger and he loved each and every one of our players. He wasn’t the Dad trying to relive his youth through
his boys, he just supported and cheered them on - he loved them
and they loved him. Kenneth enjoyed his family and loved life, he
had a big heart and always ready to pitch in and help wherever needed. My thoughts and prayers are with you in the days to come,
even though your hearts are heavy, Kenneth left a Legacy of love,
devotion, servanthood, and life’s lessons that will remain with you
all the days of your life. May you find peace and comfort in Jesus.
Colossians 1: 16-17
For by him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or
authorities; all things were created by him and for him. He is
before all things, and in him all things hold together.

I met Kennith first at Ben Hill Baptist Church back in the late 60's I think it was. In the 70's we hung out together with the BHB youth group and Kennith's best friend Mike Collins who was also my best friend. Kennith ,Mike Collins ,Tommy Webb and I all were hired at UPS at the same time in the early 1970's. Kennith was the only one of us that stayed there and made a career at UPS. I remember Kennith and I owned a Go Kart together and raced up and down his family 's neighbor hood streets some in our late teens. We also owned a dune buggy together at one time and drove it around some up in the N.Ga mountains with our friend Mike. So many great memories from our friendship and all of them are good. Kennith was a good friend in our early years and I didn't see him again until a BHB group reunion when our friend Mike returned from a mission trip a couple of years ago. Kennith was the only person I have ever known that could put a jigsaw puzzle together with the picture face down. You will be missed Kennith , but we know where you are now with Jesus in heaven pain free. We will see you again someday my friend ! Prayers for the sweet family Kennith left behind for comfort during your time of mourning. God Bless You All!
