He was a member of Hope Lutheran Church and was the faithful Sunday bulletin folder for many years. Kenny will be remembered as a positive person and one who always had an encouraging word and a smile. For several years, he enjoyed going to Fosston High School home sporting events with his Bethany friends. The constant in Kenny’s life was his faith in his Lord, Jesus Christ.
He will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
