  1. My condolences to you and your family… Kenny was and still is to me all those things wrote about him. He was a light in everyone’s corner and often encouraged me to stay in my path of sobriety.. I know that he was very strong in his sobriety and was someone I looked up to and strived to be like Kenny was not snow white or crystal clean but he over came that with great pride with the strength of his Lord and Savior who pulled him out of the depths of hell and addiction. I know he is rejoicing in the arms of his one true love whom he never stopped loving not even for a second. He loved Dude with his heart and dude will be and is Kenny in dog form. The entire sequoyah county and surrounding towns are mourning the loss of this great man. You only find someone like him once or twice in a lifetime. I can’t say enough but he’ll always be in our heart as he rejoices in heaven..

  2. My condolences to the family!! He always had a way of making everyone laugh and I’ll always be grateful for the fun memories we had.

    You are one of my most favorite people ever. I will never forget you. You were a light in my life when I needed light in my life. You were always so good to me.

  5. I will be praying for Kenny family. I know he is in a much better place with the Lord Jesus Christ! I’m sure though he will be missed by so many! May the Lord comfort family and friends in this time of need.

  6. Kenny and I go way back to the beginning. Cousins first, then first graders through 12th grade. Running around as teenagers, hanging out at snak shak, he was always one for a good laugh and making others feel better. Hanging in my office is a shadowbox photo of a Sallisaw High School ring with Robert engraved on it. Kenny found that for me and brought it to me. It hangs where we hung it that day. It will be forever with me. I loved him and he knew it. See when I get there Cuz.
