On April 30, 1976 Kenny married the love of his life and soul mate Cynthia Denise Johnson. They were happily married for 44 years. They did everything together; hunting was their most passionate thing to do along with their fur babies Duke and D J for many years. His love for Duke and D J was like loving a child. He loved them with all of his heart. Kenny always loved and enjoyed making people laugh. He was a true comedian at heart, full of laughter and a huge smile always. His smile was contagious. Christmas was his favorite holiday, he always loved gathering with his loved ones to pop fireworks, play games and dance the night away to the oldies. He was always one to share stories and laugh especially about adventures he had with his family and friends. Kenny lived his life to the fullest. He was an avid and dedicated hunter. He loved to rabbit, squirrel and deer hunt. Spending time at the camp with family and friends were always a delight. Deer season was his favorite of all; he was always excited and eager to hunt. Throughout his later years his health deteriorated but no matter what obstacles he faced he never gave up. Quitting was not an option for him, working hard was instilled in him growing up and he was a firm believer in hard work.
