Kenneth H. Herron 1968 - 2013
Kenny Herron, loving and loyal son, our mischievous brother and master of hugs, found his peace on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. Kenny was born July 11, 1968 in Boulder, CO. He brought love and laughter to any occasion, sharing his unique brand of humor with all. He was an extraordinarily kind and compassionate friend, always a consummate peacemaker. As a young teenager, Kenny begged for a guitar, which proved to be a wise investment. He took his natural musical talent to his first band Triad (including brother Nate) and later on the road with bands Vital Addictions and Wolfgang. He was a charismatic presence on stage, ever the rock and roll showman. He later graduated from the University of Utah, spending many years in Salt Lake and Park City as a hospitality industry salesman. However, Kenny's true love and passion was on the water, fly rod in hand, hooking the brownies. His remarkable patience made him an exceptional river guide and teacher. Kenny had deep love and respect for his parents, sisters and brothers. We wish to share the following words sent from a family friend:
"Ken was beautiful. He (and you) taught me to fish. He would row all day, point out all the fish, laugh, laugh some more, and then thank you for a good day at the end. He had sparkling eyes, was always glad to see you, gave killer hugs, and would give you the shirt off his back. He loved brownies. He loved his family. He loved the River, and all three loved him back. I loved to watch him tie flies, strum his guitar, light up a smoke, or untangle my line. He had magic fingers, and infectious humor and a deep capacity for friendship and caring. He LOVED his brothers, loved his friends, and would stand shoulder to shoulder with them anytime anywhere."
That was our Kenny in a nutshell. He loved being "Uncle Honey" to his nephews and nieces, always supportive of their endeavors, especially to take them for a float down the Green. Kenny is survived by his parents Lynn and Elaine Herron, siblings Dave (Beth), Steve (Natalie), Julie (Kemla), Jennifer, and Nate; Nephews Austin, Jackson, Sage, River, Kai and nieces Taegan, Alicia, and Andrea. Special thanks to friends Jeff, Matt and Dusty. Please join us for a celebration of Ken's life Friday, March 22 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Park City Community Church 4501 N. Highway 224, Park City, UT. In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Utah Stream Access Coalition (USAC).
