There is a photo on the wall in Kenny’s bedroom. I took it. It shows Kenny with an apron on. He purchased that special apron at a place called Skinny Dicks Inn along the highway leading into Fairbanks Alaska. We were going on an epic river trip from the Arctic Circle down the Yukon River 85 miles to Fort Yukon then up the Porcupine River about 100 miles or so and then up the Coleen River. But we had an on outboard motor failure and someone had to stay behind at the confluence of the Sheenjack and the Porcupine. Kenny, with his generous big heart, volunteered. He had a shot gun for bears and plenty of food. 4 of us in 2 canoes continued on. Another failed motor brought us back down river in a few days disappointed tired and hungry.
( As you know ...Hungry was never a problem around Kenny) When we landed at Kenny’s camp he greeted us with nothin on but that apron from Skinny Dicks which had a flap in the front he could lift up showing an anatomically correct but fake penis. Then he immediately said “Oh look at that pretty rock” and turned around a bent over to pick it up showing us his bare rump. Funny guy. You had to love him. We had many other adventures together... like the one that put those moose antlers and hide on his living room wall. But rest assured he loved life. He loved people and he knew how to enjoy.
