Kenneth Paul Jagosz
June 24, 1947 – December 30, 2020
Our brother, Kenny ~ His life was FULL of Laughter, Living Big, Loving Bigger. He passed away December 30, 2020.
Kenneth Paul Jagosz was born June 24,1947 in Detroit, Michigan, to Bronislau and Virginia (Gardella) Jagosz. He was raised in Southern California, with the three of us in a family of dozens of aunts, uncles and cousins … both of our parents’ siblings numbering in the teens. After graduating from Westchester High School he served our country in the US Marine Corps from 1966 to 1970, a Vietnam War Veteran. He earned his Masters in Music from California State University Long Beach in 1979.
Kenny is lovingly remembered as a “beach boy”, crazy about surfing. All his adult life living near the beach, the past 30 years found him happy as a clam living on the Long Beach Peninsula. Kenny LOVED and was always excited about food and any holiday gathering! Two of his favorite pastimes were camping and fishing. Passionate about music and dancing throughout his lifetime, he toured the states for years with his band. Kenny was employed by Xerox Corporation for 30 years, retiring as a Senior Engineer. He enjoyed post retirement immensely ~ acting, singing and dancing in and throughout Southern California musical community theaters. Through these years, Kenny was fortunate to be married to two fabulous women and to raise an endearing daughter.
Kenny was preceded in death by his beloved daughter, Kenna Sue Simpson. He will be lovingly remembered by his granddaughters, Elizabeth (and Andrew) Risch, Lorraine Antil, Susanna Cook; sisters Myrna Peeso, Sharron Dickman, Lori (and Tony) Secker; numerous loving nieces, nephews, cousins; former spouses Susan (Hunt) Jagosz, Terri (Davis) Jagosz and a vast number of friends who loved him dearly. Our brother wished to be buried at Holy Cross Cemetery where our parents were laid to rest. His burial took place on January 12, 2021. Graveside, Reverend Father Riebe-Estrella blessed Kenny and his final resting place. A Mass in honor of Kenny, has been celebrated at Church of the Visitation, our family parish for many years. Kenny is now at peace with our Lord.
God Bless Your Soul, Brother ❤ † ❤
