Kenny did concrete work before severely injuring his back. He enjoyed spending time at home working on the mini farm with his dad.

Kenny was a loving father, son, brother and uncle. He had a big heart and a beautiful soul. The family would like to thank his nurse Tara and Central Mass VNA Hospice for all their care and support.
