Dear Mrs. Dalga,
My name is Barbara Abney and I worked with your husband at sylvania in Winchester ky. At this time he was not married and I can't recall the year. I just today learned of Kenny's death and I am truly devastated. Kenny was one of the funniest people that I have every been around and he kept us in the R&D department in stitches.
Although he only worked there for a short while he left an impression on us that at times we would just stop and laugh and say remember when Kenny did this then we would all laugh . Kenny had a personality that was golden and treated us all with the upmost respect. (Even an old woman like me I retired last year) .
I am glad that he got married and had a son I'm sure he was a super dad!!and husband.
Please accept my sincere condolences on a fine young man who I know would have a beautiful wife and child
My heart truly breaks for you and his family you and your family will be in my prayers.

As an Air Force father I have the highest respect and admiration for those who volunteer to serve, in a seemingly always dangerous capacity, when their exceptional talents could bring more safety and wealth elsewhere. Please accept my condolences from South Carolina. I was able to live stream part of the memorial service, and the street lined with airmen.

I did not know this young man, I read of his passing while looking for an obituary. I just wanted to stop and say how grateful I am to men and woman like him that risk everything to protect myself and all others. Even though I was not priveleged to know him, I am saddened to hear he lost his life while doing something so admirable. I will be praying for all those that knew him and loved him, as I know this is an extremely difficult time.
