I first met Kenny when he started cutting my hair in 1973. He last cut my hair in 2012. Always loved my time with him and looked forward to going. His laughter, his smile was Heaven sent. True gentleman. We use to tell each other about our families and what we were doing on this weekend. Tell me about going fishing and taking grandson to Jay county lake.
So enjoyed my time with him
My sympathy to Delores and family
HEAVEN HAS A NEW ANGEL🙏

Oh my goodness, sweetest man ever and loved by everyone. My memories of Kenny go all the way back to childhood .His family were our neighbors and after he and Deloris were married and moved around the corner we were always welcome to ride our bikes over. Later my 3 sons loved going to see Kenny to get their hair cut. He always told them jokes but he always listened to theirs too. He always made them feel so welcome. You will be so missed Kenny but I know you are rejoicing in Heaven and God is telling you well done good and faithful servant 💕
