You will be missed ! My adopted dad two doors down.. you where there for joe n I when we was growing up .. I have been n will always be there for your kids ... r.i.p. ken ...

Had the pleasure of working with Kenny, he was all around a great guy with a contagious smile, his sense of humor will be missed by all. Condolences to family and friends.

Kenny was a great man. He loved Sandy and his family and children with all his heart and being. He loved his country and served it and was not afraid to speak his mind about that devotion. He loved his Harley and rode with devotion.

I enjoyed our conversations about America, life and our devotion to our loved ones, including our beloved pets. As we agreed, there are two types of people those who love animals and those who have no souls. Kenny loved his pets.


Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kenny 's family. I rode with Kenny and Sandy and the gang across the country, we had a lot of laughs and he will be surely missed.

Prayers to Kennys family, may you Rest In Peace Kenny

Sandy may the memories of the great times you shared with Kenny comfort you and your family today and always. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

My prayers are with you and your family Sorry to hear this....good guy.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the family..R.I.P Kenny
