Ken, did not say much but he was funny. We did not get to see him much because of distance and jobs . They always came to all of Mom's birthday parties from her 85th through her 101st. He gave her a letter from The President of the U S on her 100th birthday. She was so proud of that. We will miss you sweet Kenny.

My friend Kenny. We had many good times together. Floating down the Blanco River at night on innertubes getting scratched up by the brush we floated into. Al the while Mr. Russ was laughing at us. Many good times in Silverton, CO taking those Jeeps everywhere. Many great memories my friend. From camping to fishing to boiling Crawfish. I will miss you. I wish we could have seen each other more as we got older but life happens. Love you buddy.

Kenny. My buddy. I became friends with kenny back in 8th grade. One of the best friends I ever had. Kenny would pick me up at the house in the ole red toyota. Many weekends spent together thru our teens and twenties. My job travels me all over the country and I lost touch with kenny. My family loved him and Kenny had many friends who loved him. This one really hurts me . I should have stayed in contact. You were a great friend and brother to me. Rest in peace my friend. .

Total shock when I heard you passed. I meet Kenny working at Southern Microfilm about 30 years ago. We became friends over the years. We have been friends ever since. We had a lot in common.
He loved cars, trucks,dirt bikes,RC cars, rock n roll,guns,wood working and having a good time. He was the type of person that would go out of his way to help you out. He helped me to many time to count over the years. I will miss Kenny but remember all the good times we had. You left us to soon. Your friend Anthony.

My brother Ron DeVincent was best friends with Kenny. He spend many great times at our house, crawfish boils, bbq’s, and just hanging out sharing good times. My departed Mom and Dad loved him too. He was a very generous, loving guy that will be greatly missed by all of my family. So sorry to loose such a loving man.
