Freed from the shackles of muscular dystrophy, Kenney David Deville walked through the Heavenly Gates on November 19, 2019, greeted by his parents and his brother, Johnny Deville.

Kenney was born on January 27, 1963 to Jesse and Marie Deville. Even though he was stricken with a neuromuscular disease, Kenney walked across the stage to receive his diploma when he graduated from Sulphur High School in 1981. He graduated from McNeese State university in 1994 with a bachelor's degree in accounting. Kenney never met a stranger and enjoyed visiting and spending time with friends and family. His neighbors looked forward to his daily rolls down the street when he would stop to talk about fishing and football. Kenney enjoyed watching football, especially the Sulphur Tors, McNeese Cowboys, and New Orleans Saints. Even more than watching, he loved to talk about his teams. He also watched his niece and nephews play softball and baseball and shared big stories of his baseball playing days. Kenney loved fishing and always tried to persuade anyone to reveal their best fishing holes. He also enjoyed riding his 4 wheeler and horses.

Those left to cherish his memory are his brother, James Deville and wife, Jeannie, sisters, Ruby Wilson and husband, Stanley, Kathy Wilson and husband, Buddy, Susan Fluitt and husband, Trey; nephews, Jeff Deville, Danny Deville, Timmy Wilson and wife, Karah, Hunter Fluitt, and Luke Fluitt; niece, Tina Brown and husband, Chance; great-nephews, Connor Wilson, Carter Wilson, and Jake Brown; best friend, John Ieyoub; Godson, Anderson Ieyoub; and many friends. He was preceded in death by parents, Jesse and Marie Deville, and a brother, John Deville.

Visitation will be held from 4-8 p.m. on Friday, November 22, 2019 and will resume at 8 a.m. on Saturday morning until time of service at Hixson-Sulphur Memorial Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held 10 a.m. Saturday, November 23, 2019 at the funeral home. Rev. Jaceson Johnson will officiate. Pallbearers will be Luke Fluitt, Hunter Fluitt, Timmy Wilson, Chance Brown, John Ieyoub, and Connor Wilson. Burial will follow in Roselawn Cemetery in Sulphur, Louisiana.

The family would like to say a special thank you to Kenney's caregivers, Flo Zamora, Karley and Jeff Monceaux, for the wonderful love and care given to their brother.

I’ve know Kenny all his life. He was a
Kind and humble person.
Kenny would visit with me when he rolled down the street with his little dog
Pal,. Pal would get the chain tangled in
The wheelchair wheel and I would go and help untangle his chain.
We took Kenny out to eat with us several
Times and he so enjoyed us all getting together . I will never forget Kenny, so until we meet again Kenny, RIP, and know you will be missed 😢♥️

Kenney was the ring bearer and I was the flower girl at Ruby's wedding many moons ago. And later in life, Dennis and I were in college around the same time as Kenney. He accomplished so much in his lifetime and made us all so proud. He didn't seem to know the word quit. We are all sending love and praying that God sends comfort and peace to your family.
