Kenny loved sports and the outdoors. He and Pam went camping many times to Salt Fork State Park. He was a hunter but, mostly favored bass fishing at various lakes in Ohio. Kenny volunteered his time at the YMCA coaching children’s sports. He was always known as the funny one in the family, at a young age often playing fun pranks on his siblings.
