Kenny was a man blessed with a strong work ethic. Throughout his adult life, he was a tractor-trailer driver, construction worker and a farm hand until a disability necessitated his early retirement.
Kenny was a quiet man with the patience of a saint. He made friends easily and was always ready for some good-natured ribbing. He was also fond of sports on television. Among his favorites were Yankees baseball, Giants football and NASCAR. He was an avid fan of the late Dale Earnhardt Sr.
