So sorry for your loss. Kenneth always the same. I know that he never met a stranger. Didn’t get to see him often enough. But we always had a good time when we did. Hope that in each day you find peace and comfort. You all are in my prayers and thoughts.

To Kenneth's family,
We are so sorry to hear of his passing he will truly be missed by all that knew him. May God bless you all in this special time of need.
We will miss seeing him work in his garden and him riding by our house and throw up his hand and wave and take a quick look at our garden to make sure we were doing the right things.
Yes, he will be truly missed....

Kenneth was such a good man who was one of the hardest working men I've known growing up. The world has lost one of a kind, but heaven has gained him. I'm betting heavens gardens have never looked better with his presence! Praying for your entire family during this hard time!
