    Uncle Ken will be deeply missed by his nieces/nephews and his great nieces/nephews. He was most often noted to have a smile on his face. He was always able to pass on that smile and make you laugh with a good joke. He had a very thoughtful and kind heart. Uncle Ken will always be loved and remembered.

    I haven’t talked to Uncle Kenny in many years but I will miss him very much. I will always remember having to keep on my toes as to not fall for one of his many practical jokes. One of my favorites as a child was the snakes in the peanut brittle jar, lol. RIP Uncle Kenny, we all love you very much.

    Hi uncle Kenny this is your great niece, I don’t remember who you are but I do know that you served our country and you were a great brother to my grandma and your other siblings. I hope you find peace and happiness where you went, because you do deserve it. I really don’t know what to say or if you will know who I am when we meet in paradise. But I wanted to let you know that I love you and that when it’s our time that we can all be a family again. Well, I hope to see you again and oh I’m pretty sure you will be hanging out and chasing women with all your buddies that passed on to and would you tell them that I thank them to for having courage and being very brave to protecting our country. Thank you.

    Brother Kenny
    When I think of you I always remember your 1960 Chevy with the yellow racing stripe that said 409 . You and I and Jule were going up to Delton. We jumped in and you fired her up and before we left, you reached down and rubbed Julie’s leg, and then you picked up my hand and rubbed her leg with it. That was the first girl I ever touched with my big brother’s assistance and your “Kenny” grin and laugh.

  15. Judy Donati says:

    I dreamed of Ken last night. He is terribly missed even to this day.
