Very sorry to hear about Kenneth. He was my brother-in-law. He was born eleven days after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor to start World War Two. His Dad was a Marine who was killed in 1945 in that same war. So him and younger brother Donnie were left without a dad and his mother was a young widow. His mother later married Mr. West. They had three children. Sharon, Beverly and Dennis. The whole family made their home in Clute Texas. Where my sister Marilyn met her future husband. Something I will always remember about Kenneth was his work ethic. For years he even worked two jobs. Finally at about the age of 70. Health issues wouldn't allow him to continue working. Rest in Peace Kenneth.
