Uncle Kenneth was one of a kind. Very sweet, caring & friendly man. A very kind husband, father, family man & friend. He never met a stranger & always made it a point to speak to you. He has won the ultimate battle & is suffering no more. He will be missed by many. Prayers for Aunt Lois, Gary, Kim, Haley & Hunter in the days ahead as they go thru this difficult time. May God hold you & give you comfort & peace during this time. Love to you all.
