Kenny was a great guy, always fun and ready to help anyone that asked. Loved him and all his family, we met in grade school in Tonopah. May his family be comforted by their memories.

Our parents were friends. Dutch and Dad went way back, to childhood. Then somehow we all ended up in To no pay, our farms about 10 ? Miles apart. They were part of my life growing up. He will certainly be missed.
