Kenny worked for Santa Cruz A.M.R. He was excited and well on his way to accomplishing his goals as a Paramedic/Fireman. He was a wonderful son and brought joy to those around him.

He loved his family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, his wonderful friends, and his dog Thor. Kenny loved the outdoors, backpacking, camping, shooting, cars and motorcycles were at the top of his list. He got to visit Europe, Canada and had many fun plans for his future. He was taken too soon, but his undying love for his family, friends and his amazing and endless light will carry on in our hearts forever.
