He was blessed with several nieces and nephews, and a host of other relatives and friends dear to his heart.
Kenny loved his family. He never met a stranger and was the life of the party. An avid story teller and constant practical joker, he delighted in making everyone laugh and smile. He always made everyone feel welcome and comfortable. His greatest passions were cooking, gardening and raising cattle. He loved to share a meal or cook for anyone that asked him to. He inherited the love of farming the same land that his grandfathers and parents did. He loved just sitting and watching his cows.
A Celebration of Life service will be held Saturday, August 26, 2023 at 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. at Cornerstone Christian Center in Madison, GA. The family will have a private service at a later date.
The family wishes to sincerely thank everyone for their support, prayers, and love during these hard times. -The Harper Family
