Kenny was proud to be a member of the IATSE Union, Local 23. He loved his union brothers and they loved him. Kenny was passionate about music. He had a wonderful knack for summing up any situation, relating it too a song and quoting the lyrics
As a loyal New Englander, Kenny was a fanatic for the New England Patriots, a passion he shared with his Dad. He looked forward to each season and every statistic. Kenny’s natural intelligence and broad range of knowledge made him a formidable force while playing trivia, a passion he shared with his mother.
Kenny leaves behind family and many friends who loved and appreciated his quick wit, knowing smile and the way his eyes sparkled when he found something amusing, which was quite often.
He is gone too soon and will be missed so much.

“People stay just a little bit longer,
We want to play, just a little bit longer,
Now the promoter don’t mind,
And the Union don’t mind’
If we take a little time,
And we leave it all behind and sing,
One more song……
We got time to think of the ones we love
While the miles roll away.
The only time that seems to short,
Is the time that we get to play” Jackson Browne, The Load Out/Stay 1977
