Kenny was a loyal friend and confidant who never let me down. So many memories of our trips to Foxboro together for over 25 years. I can still remember the "Snow Bowl"like it was yesterday when Vinatieri kicked that field goal. We hugged together and screamed like never before. You will never be forgotten. Our deepest sympathy to Sherry and family. God's speed brother! Go Pats!

Kenny was a great guy. I knew him not only through my family, but as the score keeper at all the basketball games.
He will be missed by many. Blessings to his family and friends.
