If you knew Kenneth, you knew him by the smile on his face.  He loved life and the people that were in it.  If he could make you laugh his day was made. He loved the Woodbury community, especially his friends and neighbors in Lee Acres. Kenneth was a lover of the outdoors.  You would find him working in his yard, gardening or building something for he and Lynn.  He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, riding Harley’s or his side by side. He also loved playing the drums.
