Kenneth "Kenny" White stepped into His glory on Saturday, Nov. 30, in Aurora, Colo., following a brief illness. Kenny was born Sept. 28, 1959, in Sheridan, Wyo., to Tommy and Nancy Masters-White. He graduated Bighorn High School in 1978 and went adventuring in his life from there.
Kenny met the love of his wife, Sue, in 1986 and together they raised four children.
His life's work was in relationships, and he was a master craftsman. Kenny had no enemies, he never met a stranger, and everyone who met and knew him was richer for it. His passion for his God, his family, his friends and for people was a joy to behold.
Kenny, Sue and their younger kids spent many years as houseparents at Special K Ranch, where he broadened his love of life with the residents and staff he blessed, and was blessed by daily.
Kenny was an Elder at Columbus Evangelical Church, a member of Wyoming Contractors Association and a huge proponent of Special Olympics.
Kenny had survived many health difficulties in the past, including a stage 4 cancer in 2008. He was a walking miracle for these past years. The lives he touched were countless, and he will leave a void no earthly man can fill.
Kenny was preceded in death by his son, Thomas; and his father, Tommy. He is survived by his wife, Sue; daughters, Alynne and Nancy; and son, Todd; mother, Nancy Masters; brothers, Greg, Sam, Eddie and Jess; sisters, Debbie, Michelle, Nita, Tina, Deb and Janelle; nephews and nieces aplenty; two grandsons; three granddaughters; and in-laws that he loved.
He was a man who loved deeply, and was deeply loved in return.
Memorial services will be held 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 14, at the Eva Evangelical Church in Columbus, Mont.
