Kenneth L. Maxell Obituary
KENNETH L. MAXELL, age 77, passed away on Saturday, October 29, 2016. Kenny was born in 1939 at the Parkridge Sanitarium and Maternity Home, and was a lifelong resident of Corona where he attended Jefferson School, Corona Jr. High and Corona High, and graduated in the class of 1957. He played football and baseball for CHS and continued playing and enjoying sports into his adult life. Shortly after graduation Kenny began employment with the United States Postal Service for which he devoted nearly three decades of service to the community of Corona until retirement in 1988. He walked his route, up to 9 miles a day, and enjoyed the friendships he made. He is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Deanna; his children, Kyle Maxell and wife Laura, Karen Lloyd and husband Mitch, and Karla Zimmer and husband David; sister, Helen Taini; grandchildren, Josh Holland and wife Becky, Garrett and Megan Lloyd, Korbin and Kamry Maxell, and three great grandchildren, Kaytlynn, Kameron, and Klayton, along with many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his adoring parents Roy and Emma Maxell. Kenny was a man of many talents and passions. He loved being outdoors and enjoying the nature around him, especially in Kennedy Meadows. A personal highlight of Kenny's life was when he climbed to the top of Mt. Whitney where it had begun snowing once he arrived. Kenny was also a train enthusiast and woodworker in which he created a personal G Scale Train Layout named The Volcanic Mountain Railroad. A Celebration of Life service will be held at the Corona United Methodist Church at 10:30 am on Saturday, November 5, 2016.
