Kenneth Harold Korn
4/18/1953 - 3/7/2015
Kenneth Harold (Kenny) Korn, feisty brother, favorite uncle and caretaker of friends and animals passed away on March 7, 2015.
Born on April 18, 1953 in Nebraska, Kenny was raised on his parents' farm in Nampa and helped build it into Korncrest Farms praised for its registered Holstein herd, high quality milk, farm fresh eggs and prize winning animals. He graduated from Vallivue High School where he was active in both 4H and Future Farmers of America. He received his BS in 3 ½ years from the University of Idaho and returned home to continue to work with his animals. His favorite time of year was Spring and Summer where he could incubate various fowl, grow poppies and enjoy family get togethers with swimming, fireworks and the latest adult beverage. He broke his neck in 1982 during one on his mischievous adventures but didn't let that stop him from returning to his work to help his dad and brother with the farm. As Pop's health began to fail, Kenny took on the primary responsibility to care for his parents and helped them enjoy their last years in the way they wanted. This was a great task for anyone who knew Mother! As the encroachment of the city moved in, Kenny moved to New Plymouth where he continued his egg business delivering to several valley markets. He also raised Beulingo cows and of course kept his sheep.
Kenny supported FFA and 4H throughout his life and helped kids by producing and selling high quality animals for show. He gave his time and expertise to choose the best and guide the next generation in animal husbandry, quality and showmanship.
Though Kenny never married or had children of his own, he was definitely the favorite uncle in the family. He was the instigator of mostly legal "fun" in the family but was also the one that each kid or sibling went to when they needed advice and guidance. Everyone who knew him has stories of adventures with Kenny!
Kenny is survived by his brothers, Jerry, Richard (Kim), Les (Carolyn), his sister, Paula (Casey) McMullen and multiple nieces and nephews. Kenny is preceded death by his parents, Paul and Lois and his nephew, Mike.
A Thursday evening visitation will be held March 12th from 5-7 pm with a funeral celebration of Kenny's life on Friday, March 13th at 12:30 at Alsip & Persons Funeral Chapel (404 10th Ave. S., Nampa - 466-3545 ). Graveside Rites will follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery.
In Lieu on flowers, the family suggests memorial donations to the Vallivue or New Plymouth FFA. Also, Kenny would have asked you to work hard, laugh often, avoid the norm and toast one to him!
