Kenneth loved the Lord and was a lay evangelist/preacher in the Pentecostal faith. He enjoyed being outdoors where his favorite activities were fishing, camping, and coon hunting. He was a big fan of the Kansas City Chiefs Football Team. He was very strong willed and was steadfast in his convictions. He loved his family and especially enjoyed having time with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Kenneth was a loving husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, and was a caring friend.
