Professionally, Kenny has worked as a welder for over 30 years. When he was free, he would take his grandchildren to the Mississippi, fishing and camping in the River Cabin. Kenny’s favorite drink was whiskey and sprite or a cold beer. He loved enjoying bacon, eggs, breakfast hash, cabbage, sausages, carrots, or a large bowl of hobo soup! Kenny enjoyed watching Me TV, Steve Wilco, Jerry Springer, Price is Right, and Sanford and Son while relaxing at home. Working on the old Dodge in Austin’s garage was also one of Kenny’s favorite things to do. Kenny loved his family, especially spending time with his grandchildren, and is missed by his many loved ones.
