We called him Tag because he would tag along behind Kenny everywhere he went.

Each and every time we saw Ken was a special moment or day. He was so very special to Charlie and I. We felt he was an extension of our family. We will miss him terribly, and he will always be in our hearts. It is so hard to think he is not with us anymore. Everytime I make his favorite “fruit salad” I will smile and think of Ken with the fondest of memories!
He was a terrific father to Lisa and Kevin and the greatest of grandfathers to Kaitlyn and Caleb. Our hearts are broken.

Any time spent with Uncle Kenny was enjoyable because you never knew what he was going to come up with next, he always had a joke or a witty comment for every situation. While chatting with him at the family reunion in August we were talking about Tyler learning to weld on the project car he is restoring and Uncle Kenny told me he would teach Ty to arc weld because that is the strongest weld, unfortunately Ty will not learn this trade from his Uncle 🙁

The school bus didn’t pick-up or drop-off my brothers at our driveway, so my brothers had to walk a 1/2 mile down to the corner to get on the bus. Living in the country, we would see a lot of dogs dumped by their owners. One day after school, Kenny brought one of those dogs home. He told Mom and Dad that the dog followed him home but didn’t mention he used a sandwich from his lunch to lure him. I don’t remember why he called him Tag but Tag really loved Kenny. He was one of the best dogs we ever had and Tag was really good at killing rats on the farm. Love, Annie
