His most recent employment was as a lube technician with Dave’s Dip Stick in Ardmore. There he worked 15 years, leaving in 2018 to pursue other interests.
Kenny was an avid fisherman. He loved the outdoors and living on the farm. On many days after work, he could be found “sitting on a tank” fishing or riding his four-wheeler around the farm property. He was particularly proud of the small vegetable garden he grew every year. Kenny was a hands-on guy, who loved to tinker with his pick-up truck, lawnmowers and anything else that needed repair. He was always busy doing something around the house.
