Heartfelt sorrow to family and friends of Kenny from all of the JOHNSTON family, we lived around the corner on third ave. Although the last time I saw him was 1972, I recall the walks home from school SINGLE file with my sisters, Judith and Donna in the lead, myself and Kenny not far behind, discussing subjects that to this day I remember with a chuckle. He was very tall and large to me, but so sweet to things that mattered to the heart. He was and will be always the "gentle giant"..

My Deepest Sympathy to Kenny's family. I've known Kenny since High School . He was the neatest guy and he was funny! I met him through Kurt and Kathy Marty He and I were Godparents for Neil Marty. I got to see him about 7 years ago when we went to Neils's wedding. It was so great to see and spend time with him. He was a very giving person and he would give the shirt off his back to somebody who needed it! I will miss him terribly I will hold on to all the great memories! I know I will see you again! Love, Maryann Ford.

We send our prayers to family and friends. Ken was there for so many milestones. He had such a calmness that would make people feel so comfortable. He was there for my family when I was born all the way to my wedding. He will always be in our hearts.

My deepest sympathy to uncle Kenny's family. He will always be in our hearts and prayers.We had so many great memories together. We miss you and love you. I always known you as my uncle Kenny growing up. I remember as a kid on holidays or whenever you needed batteries for something you always went to uncle Kenny for. He always carried all kinds of different batteries,so you would always be able to play with your toys. Every time i look at my star i will always remember your big smiling face explaining to me about it and showing me where it was located at.
