To the entire family of Kenny: Loved ones leave behind spaces in the world that can never be filled.But they also leave behind love and light in each of you, sparks of joy, and hope that will live in your hearts forever and give you strength. Our deepest sympathy to you all. We have many fond memories of the fun time we had with Kenny at the SPCC and the bowling alley. We loved having him for a backyard neighbor. Doug and he were a team the night of the tornado when both of our homes were destroyed and they went out to make sure everyone was okay, turning off broken gas mains in the process. He was a really good guy and so much fun to be around.
