Kenny:
As soon as you came into Chrissy life, there was a bright smile on her face that never dimmed. Sharon and I are privilege to have shared in many great memories with you and Chrissy, memories that will never go away. You were a great husband, an excellent role model for the boys, and a great grandfather for the kids. A servant of the Community as a Chief in the Holtsville Fire Department. You became part of the Umphred Family, and we are honored to have known you for the past 20 years, and to enjoyed many memorable times with you and Chrissy together. I always joked with people, and said, well, not really sure if Chrissy and Kenny are part of the family, since Chris was divorced, but believe me, you are part of the family from day 1, and will be 10, 20 or 30 years from now. We all love you, mom, john and deb did also, and I'm sure even the clerk in 7-11 did you. We always say you were never short of words, you could have a conversation with a rock. You were a unique person, always a smile, had you own sense of humor, and was always there when anyone needed you. Chrissy, the boys and kids are in a better place on this earth having you as part of their family. They could not have asked for anyone better. Sharon and I could not have asked for a better bartender. Our life is better because of your New Years eve "Blue Drinks", and still to this day, I THANK YOU that you did not allow me to take a big bit of that hot sauce. My mouth would still be burning today, 10 years later.

As the saying goes, you are gone, but will never be forgotten. You are out of pain, and in a better place. Even though you are no longer here physically, you will always be with Chrissy, and you will continue to share your love with her. You will continue to watch over her, protect her, and your family. I have no doubt that the next picture I take of Chrissy, there will be this faint image of you, looking down onto he. RIP, Love ya, Bob and Sharon.

Kenny worked the late shift at Aquebogue Elementary school. I am a night person and would stay late each evening to get ready for my class the next day. Kenny and I would often stop to talk. He was a gentle, kind man who I enjoyed sharing stories and discussions with. My deepest condolences to his family and other friends. May he Rest In Peace 🙏🏻

Kenny has been in my life since I was a teenager. He was very special to me while I was in Nursing School and raising two little ones on my own. Kenny always left a box of Nabisco Sugar wafers under my pillow and would take the kiddos out on an adventure so I could study and overload on Sugar wafers. He was a big love to everyone. He was supportive, loving and cared for my children as if they were his own. Kenny was the person you could call anytime, day or night and he would be there for you. My fondest memory of Kenny is his laughter and his bright, beautiful smile... the only thing bigger or brighter was his heart. I am utterly heartbroken and send my deepest condolences to his family. - Suzanne
