My mother was the bookkeeper for Rex Null's Garage and introduced our family to Kenneth when I was a child. He was always so kind and thoughtful. Always ready to help out and spread some cheer. He always greeted me on the street or wherever we passed. Kenneth was just a good man and will be sorely missed. My condolences to family and friends.

My sincere sympathies to Kenneth's family. His mom was my dad's sister;Marvin & Edgelee. Kenneth was so kind to my husband & I when we visited in Deming. He showed us all the local sites. He is in paradise now with no pain and no tears. Lovingly, cousin Debbie
