  3. Omg! Kenneth and I were best friends back in the day. Loved the guy! Can’t believe he is gone. One great human being. Loved u Kenneth. God bless you.

  4. We remember Kenneth in our ’64 Stephen F. Austin High School class as a friend who was lots of fun and enjoyed a good joke. He made us laugh in class much to the dismay of our teachers. We have many fond memories of those years in school with him. He will be remembered by his classmates this year as we have our 55-year class reunion.
