Many of you may not have know Kenneth as he was reserved although I don't believe he was shy. He lived in Valhalla which is the subdivision immediately south of the high school. I ran around with him and he was about my best friend. However, as many of you know, friendships change as people pass through out lives. I don't know where he moved to.

Kenneth was probably one of the most decent and honorable people I've known. He had very good parents, although I didn't know them well.

Kenneth was very smart, lots smarter than I was, (as if that were a compliment). He loved to work on models which we were always playing with. I will always remember the one car model he had made and painted a yellowish green metallic color. He had put it in a case and entered it in a model show. He had won a prize with it. He was humble about it, too. He just quietly showed me the model and said he'd won a contest with it. He didn't make a big deal of it. If I had, you'd all have seen it at show and tell.

I don't know why we played with me, as I was not on his level of maturity and responsibility. He truely was a decent Christian person.
