He married Rosie Davis on October 6,1979.

The couple was blessed with two sons and a daughter. In 1991, he purchased the farm in Monona County where he built a cabin, a great joy to him, his family and friends.

Kenny loved his church and community and served them in a variety of ways. He was an active member of St. Boniface, Charter Oak, serving on the parish council and belonged to the Knights of Columbus. He served in various offices in the Charter Oak Commercial Club, is a board member of the Community Club and a volunteer fireman since 1981 being named as Fireman of the Year.

Kenny was an avid supporter of all school activities serving as president of the Charter Oak-Ute Athletic Boosters and acting as photographer for the local newspaper at the sporting events while his three children were in school. He continued supporting his children in their college activities and the activities of his grandchildren as well.

Kenny was a well-liked, kind and generous man, a friend to all. He was a steward of the land, a grain farmer, raised cattle and hogs, was an avid bird-watcher, and animal lover. He was a good guy and was always willing to participate and lend a hand whenever needed.

Kenny passed away on March 13, 2022, at the Crawford County Memorial Hospital in Denison at the age of 66 years, 3 months and 6 days.
