Kenny (& Phyllis) have been very special people in my life. We were neighbors and friends. I was always impressed with Kenny’s moose antler sheds he would gather during the winter and I couldn’t find a single one! And he could fix or build anything with the tools in his garage. He was a good man. Rest In Peace, Kenny. You are very missed. ❤️

Dear Phyllis and family. I was so sorry to learn of Kenny's passing. He was a wonderful man and I always enjoyed talking with him. Last summer or fall, I am not sure which, we chatted at the eye doctor's office. He appeared healthy and well. I guess one never knows.

My sympathy goes out to all of you. Many kind thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely, Diane Mckellick, Stanley, Mann. (Whichever name you remember my by..)

So sorry to hear of Kennys passing! I can remember when I was a child Kenny up to Bemis camp playing cards with the crew (Phillis, my grandfather JR, Janet, Roger, and Judy) and then there was competition for the biggest fish on Mooselook. RIP Kenny ✝️
