  3. Today will be a sad but glorious day. Kenny has touched so many people in his short 70 years here. He was a friend that you could always count on, a Dad that loved his children, a husband that adored his wife, a man others looked up to. You always felt welcome in his home and knew you had a place in his heart. I will always remember him as a gentle giant in so many ways. I am so thankful for being able to spend some time with him Sunday remembering the good old days. Marie know that he loved you so much. Kids know that he was proud of each of you for the young men and women you have became. Keep him in your heart and know that he is at peace and he wants the same for you. Prayers are sent for the family.
