  9. Kenny was born October 17, 1952 in Metter, Georgia, and grew up in Statesboro, a nearby college town. His interest in motorcycles began in the late 1960s while in high school. For a number of years, he was a commercial/industrial painter scaling bridges, water towers, and the like. He became a master CNC operator and applied his skills as a precision machinist at a number of Fortune 500 manufacturing companies in Georgia, California, and Texas, winning awards for innovative ideas and cost-saving techniques. Simultaneously, he continued his love of rebuilding and repairing motorcycles. He worked at numerous Harley Davidson dealerships in Georgia, California, and Texas, together with several custom shops. Along the way, he mastered ancillary skills, including welding, the lathe, presses, virtually anything to be found in a shop, and even designed and machined a unique oil cooler. He was also very adept at repairing automotive engines. Around 1980, he took a road trip on his rigid frame from Georgia to Los Angeles, and he did it nonstop! I recall his towing behind his bike a breakdown from Phoenix to Los Angeles, as well as stopping on numerous occasions to help total strangers with their breakdowns on isolated highways. When he lived in California, I witnessed a garage full of motorcycle parts evolve into four road-ready motorcycles. At Sturgis 2000, at almost every turn, he bumped into someone that he knew. Kenny did a lot for a lot of people. He was different. He was unique. He was my brother. They don’t make ‘em like him anymore. He will be greatly missed.

    • Hello Sarah, this is Glenn Reddick. I remember when y’all came up to visit when I lived in Smyrna, GA. I was really saddened to hear this sad news. I had talked to him about a year ago and told him when I made enough money to retire I was going to make a cross country to see all my very best friends scattered across America. He said to come on now! I wish I could have seen him face to face on Earth again…Now I will be with him again off Earth. I would like to hear more about him if you would please get in touch with me. I now live in Dallas, GEORGIA. The Earth and we have lost a good man.

    • Hello Sarah this is Levy Lowery from Statesboro Ga. I grew up with knowing Kenny where he worked for my Aunt and Uncle at Dixon’s Harley Davidson i used to walk around at a young age and watch him do his Magic on Motorcycles as i got older Kenny worked for me in Constuction for a short while . Always had a big heart and would do anything to help you if he could . he would ride his bike to my house in the mornings so we could ride to Hilton Head to go to Work , It was winter and he would come in the house at 4:30 am and they would be Ice in his beard and my little boy just loved him my little boy is 34 years old now .But i have have alot of good Memories of Kenny was a great person and even a Greater friend we will miss him. Sorry for your loss. 1-912-682-8136

      • Hi Levy – Thank you so much for your kinds words and sharing memories about my brother. I do recall when he worked at Dixon’s. He did many random acts of kindness for both friends and strangers. Sarah

  10. Debbie, I am so sorry about losing Ken. He was a good friend. He will be missed. I pray for his peace and your strength is dealing with his passing. Ken is in good hands now.

  11. Kenny the man who’s word was his Bond! God speed my Brother! May the wind continue to blow in your face and you continue to travel those long winding roads.

  12. Debbie – I’m so sorry to hear this. Hasn’t been a day gone by since his accident and passing I haven’t thought about him and all the times I’d pick up some sweet tea’s for us, sit in his shop and “chew the fat.” We complained about all the politics and talked guns and ammo til we were blue in the face. I feel extremely fortunate that he gave me (I actually bought) an old model 22 pump Savage rifle he said he had owned for 40yrs. It doesn’t work and I’m not sure if it’s even repairable, but I don’t care, I didn’t buy it to shoot. I bought it because it was his. He also gave me several wooden ammo crates that store my ammo in my bedroom and his tin lunch kit he used to carry to his jobs. It’s beat up and aged and has seen more than I possibly ever can, but it’s his and sits out in my living room. My condolences Mrs. Debbie, you and Ken are and will always been in the Glidewell’s prayers. If there is anything you ever need or need help with, please let me know.

    Sarah – I don’t think I’ve met you, but I do remember Ken telling stories about you and your brother when y’all were younger. My condolences ma’am, he was a great man, a master machinist/mechanic/builder and I am thankful for the hours upon hours of conversations with him. He will be and is very much missed. The Lord needed a Harley mechanic, swing set builder and very good man quite badly. Rest in Peace Ken.

    Lee

    • Lee – Thank you for your kind words about my brother. I may have met you, although I don’t always remember names. Yes, he could definitely work miracles when it came to machines. I’ve seen him do problem resolution when I could not even imagine there even being a solution. Sarah
