Kenny grew up in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas and attended Hoxie schools until he graduated in 1989. He made many lifelong friends there. He moved to Heber in 1991. He enjoyed living in Heber swimming in Greer's Ferry Lake and fishing in the Little Red River.
He had been a volunteer firefighter for the Wilburn Fire and EMS for many years. Known as the "jaws of life'" his very first call with the department he bent a car door backwards on its hinges when asked to only hold it open. He very much liked being on the fire department.
He was also a member of the Wilburn Community Church years prior to his illnesses. Where he was instrumental in the construction and remodel of the newest part of the church as well as built its current steeple. He was proud he could do that for the community.
Kenny loved motorcycles. He liked working on them, but loved to ride them more. From the time his dad brought one home, he was hooked. His love of motorcycles lead him and Randi to the Fire Monkey Motorcycle Club. Where he really enjoyed being a part of community events such as poker runs, bike rally’s, Santa toy drives, or just out for a nice ride with the boys.
Kenny was a good man. He made friends easily, whether from River Ranch Resort to the oil field to just everyday life, he would make long lasting friendships and friends he would one day call family. He was a great husband and father. He tried to be the best son, brother, husband, father, and friend he knew how. His big heart and big personality touched so many people. He was strong, smart, funny, quick witted, loved the outdoors, motorcycles, and his family. He will truly be missed by many!
