Kenn wasn’t just a great husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend but a true role-model as well. He was a well-rounded individual, providing constant support and guidance to everyone in his life.
Kenn achieved great success during his 31 year career with Siemens Automotive, holding several Management level positions and building many great friendships. He retired in 2007 at the young age of 52.
His favorite pastime was spending time with his family. Traveling, relaxing by the beach, hunting, fishing, and woodworking brought Kenn contentment throughout his life. He also enjoyed his time as a coach to many, his friends in the “hood”, his Southern family, and his love of classic cars.
A Celebration of Life “fish fry” will be held at a future date.
