    Our deepest sympathies to the entire family! Kenny was a great guy! Always had the best stories and experiences to tell! Every time we would drive somewhere we would always pass a house he would have a story about some of the work he had once done there! He done a lot of work for a lot of people! Was always laughing and making jokes even when he was angry sometimes and was definitely proud of his children and grandchildren. I know he sure missed Brenda and you guys can all find comfort that they could e together again now.
