I met Kennan in high school and we shared many close friends. I have some pretty funny stories and memories of times with Kennan. He was such a sweet and humble man. I always looked forward to chatting with Kennan at reunion events. May you rest in peace and have some more good times with those on the other side who have passed before you. Sending love to your family… <3

I attended Delhaas High school with Kennan and lived not far from his family as Kenwood and Crabtree are in close proximity.
Watching Kennan during a Delhaas football or soccer games always made me feel 'yeah! we're gonna win this!'
See you on the other sixe Kennan, rest now.

What a wonderful kind man Kennan was! He was our neighbor, friend and my son's soccer coach for many years. My deepest condolences to the Startzell family for their loss. Kennan will be watching over his boys from above.

My brother, Larry, my sister, Karlynne and I grew up in Levittown with the Startzells. Their parents were my Godparents. We're very sorry to hear about Kennan's death and wish all of you sympathy and peace. So very sorry.
