I will treasure all the memories of Kenny and our family, and all our phone conversations too. Such a lovely person, with a heart of gold. I am glad I had the privilege of being his cousin and will always remember his endearing self, who is now at Home in Heaven.

Kenny was my next door neighbor in Astoria, and close friend for over 75 years. After his sister Evelyn passed away, Kenny would come to my house for dinner every Saturday night. My Daughter and I spent every holiday
with him, so he wouldn't have to be alone. We so enjoyed his company, and he always had great stories to share.
We spoke every night on the phone, just to touch base and make sure the other was doing well.
Kenneth was a wonderful friend, and we often thought what would our parents think that we were spending Thanksgiving and Christmas together 75 years later. Kenny, you will be greatly missed. Rest In Peace.

Kenny was my cousin. His mother and my grandmother were sisters.
As a child I remember visiting Ken and his family ( parents Emily and William) and sister Evelyn. They always had a beautuful Christmas tree with blue lights and Lux soap on the branches.
I married and moved to New Jersey in 1968. Ken helped my parents a lot especially when they got older and had health problems.
My husband and I visited Ken several times a year. We would have lunch and we really enjoyed listening to Ken’s stories. He was by far the nicest man I know!
