Kenneth Gaines Pennoyer, 81, of Inverness, FL, died on Wednesday, June 7, 2017 at Citrus Memorial Hospital. Kenneth was born on April 28, 1936 in Norwalk, Connecticut, the son of Louis and Gladys Stiles Pennoyer.

Before moving to Inverness, Kenneth owned an automotive repair shop in New Canaan, CT, where he was well-known for his ability to fix all things mechanical and for his integrity. He was a master mechanic and continued to work in retirement, mostly on lawnmowers and tractors, but he was willing to tackle any job that needed to be done. He enjoyed using his skills to help others and was always willing to share his expertise, including teaching small engine repair at Withlacoochee Technical College. Kenneth was also active in the recovery community and over the past thirty three years devoted his efforts toward helping others on the road to sobriety.

He was an avid boater and loved to fish, especially with his children and grandchildren, who always enjoyed their outings regardless of whether any fish were caught.
