Kenneth Wayne Tew, 63, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 10, 2021 surrounded by his family. He was born on September 9, 1957 in Jackson, MS to Bill and Evelyn Tew.

Kenneth loved life to the fullest. He was a diehard New Orleans Saints fan, so much so that he cried when they won the Super Bowl. His hobbies included fishing, sitting around the house watching old movies, and his favorite band was Bon Jovi.

He was preceded in death by his father. Kenneth is survived by his mother; three daughters, Elizabeth Jones of Brandon, Raven Strickland (John) of Jackson, and Breanne Tew of Brandon; and four grandchildren, Keagan Jones, Kaine Jones, Logan Dossett, and Jaxyn Strickland.

The family will have a private memorial service for Kenneth.

My sincerest condolences to Mrs. Evelyn, Liz, Raven & Breanne during this most difficult time. Ken was such a kind hearted and loving man. He always called his Mom his angel and his girls his heart! He certainly loved his New Orleans Saints too. I'll never forget how he had tears in his eyes when they won the Super Bowl. He always watched the games whether they won or lost. A true fan. I'll always keep our friendship close to heart. May God be with you all during this time of grief. Sending prayers and love to you all!
