Kenney had a passion for life and enjoyed sharing it with those he loved. Among his many passions was visiting with friends and family, hunting and fishing, making turkey calls, and carpentry. He turned his passion for turkey calls into a small business named Kenney’s Calls and sold them across the nation.

Most importantly he was a son, brother, father, and grandfather to those who he loved and who loved him. He was always ready to share advice and help where he could. He had a contagious laugh and a unique sense of humor. He will be sorely missed by all those that loved and knew him.
