Kenny worked for Hurlock Roofing for 30 years, then for PJ Fitzpatrick for 15 years, ending his career as a quality assurance manager. Kenny was never one to sit still and he soon began work as a handyman. His customers were so impressed with his work and knowledge of the jobs he did he was always busy. When he wasn’t working he enjoyed going to concerts, attending shows at the Grand in Wilmington, boating, fishing, time at the beach in Lewes, travel and especially attending family parties.  


His greatest joy were his sons. One of their favorite topics of conversation was the universe-space, time,  new galaxy’s discovered, black holes and much more. They loved to share new music and funny videos. Kenny was caring, generous, funny, accepting and loving. He was always willing to help day or night. He loved working with his hands and could fix just about anything. He loved music and The Beatles were his favorite band. He was a joy to be around. He will be dearly missed. A Celebration of Life luncheon will be held on June 11, 2022 from 12 -3 at the Brandywine Hundred Fire Co., 1006 Brandywine Blvd Wilmington, DE 19809. Condolences may be shared at


And in the end

The love you take

Is equal to the love you make
