Kenny and I worked together for years It was a pleasure to work with him but even more so to call him my friend. When you have a great co-worker, life is so much better and Kenny did that for me. We were the same age, both served in Vietnam and both loved construction...most days. Oh the stories and antics we shared. You are greatly missed Kenny. May you rest in God's peace forever my good friend.
