What I can say about Kenny, a great many things.

A good man first and foremost. Kindhearted and generous. Friendly and caring. Whenever needed, he was always willing to lend a hand and his knowledge.

A good show of character; Kenny would always have a joke, a smile and a firm handshake when I would stop over to see everyone.

He's left his mark on the world, to say the least.

I'll miss you a crap ton Kenny. I undoubtedly know you'll rest easy, keeping watch over Sammie, Mikey and Robin.

Ken always listened to what I had to say/vent about and gave me the advice I needed. He was definitely a father figure too all the neighborhood kids growing up. Filled with knowledge, he was always wanting to share it with us all. I know he will be missed by everyone very deeply. I am very happy to say I knew you ken. Rest in paradise! And Save us a spot for us please <3

“Life handed him a few hard knocks;
Sometimes his luck was bad.
He had the usual ups and downs as most of us have had.

Grief had it’s day along his way,
Great fortune passed him by.
But he always came out a winner
With a twinkle in his eye.

This legacy of laughter,
A gift from some forbear,
Was all the weapon that he has
To fight life’s pain and care,

But he kept his sense of humor,
And he laughed away the tears,
And he went on spreading chuckles
All around him down the years.

And I know you’ll find him waiting,
When you join him by and by.
Likely joshing with the angels,
With that twinkle in his eye.”

My loving father. A father to many, blood or not. A man who stuck to his word and brought so much happiness and peace into this world.
I’ll love you forever, Daddy.
