Dear Tinquist Family,
Sending my sincere condolences on the passing of Kenny. I have known him my whole life as “Uncle Kenny” since he was a dear friend to my father Jimmy and to the entire Fagan family. May your family be comforted and blessed by the wonderful memories of Kenny who lived a full and long life. I will always remember Uncle Kenny for his hearty laugh and great sense of humor. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Tommy Fagan
