Such a sweet and good hearted man with a beautiful soul. My biggest memory of Kenny was when I stayed over night at his home and got homesick and crying. This sweet soul drove me home at 12:00 midnight to St. Thomas knowing he had to wake up and go to work. Thank you again, Kenny. You are now where you belong. It’s what you have been preparing for all your lifetime on this earth. Fly high my friend! I can see you smiling now. You finally found your destination!

Kenny was a dear friend and an incredible example of a Christ follower in every way. He had a tender heart and strong convictions when it came to serving the Lord and those he loved. He will certainly be well remembered and sorely missed until that day!
