Always looking for the best in others, Kenneth’s heart of gold was obvious to everyone he met on his journey through life. He was always available and never hesitated to help those in need. Kenneth followed the teachings of his Lord when he said to look after your fellow man. If you needed a ride, a hot meal or a little money to help you get by Kenneth was there for you.

Kenneth loved to see people laugh and enjoy life. Family and friends have many fond memories of his jokes and big smile at family gatherings. You knew he loved and liked you if he was picking on you.

Kenneth was a man made for the outdoors. He worked as a tree trimmer his entire life and took great pride in his work.
