We have so many fond memories of Kenny. We will always cherish the years and fun times at Thanksgiving dinners, milestone get togethers and visits. He always had a smile on his face and put a smile on ours. May his memory be eternal.
Kenny really was a great guy. I'm so very sorry that he's gone way too soon. My heart goes out to his wife, Sherri, his children, Samantha and Eric, his mother in law Madelyn, his sister in law Denise, his brothers and everyone who loved him. He will be deeply missed by all. God Bless you all. Sending hugs and much love.
My brother in-law, you were in every way a brother could be to a little sister! I never got the chance to tell you how much I love you, but I hope you knew it! You were an amazing man, husband, and father, but to me you were always that handsome senior that didn’t treat me like his girlfriend’s little sister. You helped me in more ways that you could possibly know. You showed me what a good man is. We miss you and are deeply heartbroken. RIP Ken, fly high and I know and believe you’ll be watching over all of us. Love Always Kenny, Denise ❤️❤️🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Our best wishes and condolences to the family. We keep them in our prayers.
Paul and Stella Morgano
