I am so sorry to hear of Kenny's passing.  I knew him for over 50 years, first as a horse person, then later , when working with him on the Railroad. He will be missed by those who knew him.

Dear Patty & Family,  Having lived on Twin Valley Road, I have known Kenny and his family all  my life. He loved to run and play with the "valley" kids and was always up for playing a joke.  He has been friends with my husband and brother for years and will be missed by each of us.  May God give you comfort and help you through these days ahead.
