Kenneth "Kenny" Charles Rabb of Ellerbe, N.C., extraordinary father, son and friend passed away, February 26, 2014, at the age of 54.
Kenny was born in Kannapolis, N.C., December 7, 1959, to Charles and Joann Rabb and grew up in Charlotte attending South Mecklenburg High School. He went on to receive a degree from N.C. State University in marketing and business.
Kenny moved to Durham to pursue a career in public relations. After raising his son Brandon, building an impressive resume and receiving many professional accolades he moved to Ellerbe in 2008 and opened his own public relations firm "The Brand." His greatest love was being a hunting guide and marketing director for The Webb Farm Quail Grounds and Lodge.
Kenny never knew a stranger. His instant smile, easy going manner and generous spirit put everyone at ease and endeared him to all who crossed his path. He was a master storyteller, entertaining and funny, bringing laughter and light wherever he went.
He is survived by his son, Brandon and wife Sarah; parents, Charlie and Joann Rabb; brother, Donald Rabb and wife Leslie; nephews, David and Dean; Ken's daughter of the heart, Maggie Becker; and hundreds of family and friends who will miss him dearly.
A celebration of Kenny's life will be held at 4 p.m. on Saturday, March 8, at Jones Springs United Methodist Church, 1506 Jones Springs Church Road, Ellerbe, with visitation following the service.
