He was a Christian soldier, proud marine, loving son, devoted brother and friend to all.
Kenny is loved and greatly missed by his parents, Robert and Mary Robertson; his brother, Jason Robertson; and two sisters, Mary and Betty Robertson. Kenny loved people. If you ever met Kenny, he would make sure you became his friend. He always was there to help if you needed a hand or be there to listen if you wanted to talk.
