LIke all of us I was surprised and sad to hear that Kenny passed.  One more reason why the brief times together at reunions are so important.  I never saw him be other than nice to everyone and never heard a bad word about anyone from him.  A good man and gentle soul who I will miss.  Rest in piece my friend.

I recall a steady, calm, presence, a neighbor.  

The list lengthens. Take care, everyone. Hold dear to our short time here.

6 years of grade school....riding the same school bus...6 years at KP...making our 1st communion together (I still have the picture)...CYO...golfing the Summer after graduation with Leo and Lee at Foxboro or Heather Hill...Saturday night stock car races with Leo and Bernie and after a trip to the Del adventurous trip to Vermont in December of 1964 to see Leo's relatives, Bernie driving, and the return trip in an ice storm...just  a few of the memories that Kenny was a part of...I echo the previous comments of my classmates, he was and always will be remembered as a good friend.

I regret that I did not know Kenny while we were in high school.  However, it is always sad to learn of a classmate's passing.  David Reynold's comment to all of us  "Hold dear to our short time here." is right on.  As we get older, time seems to pass more and more quickly.  We should make the most of the time we have left on this earth.  God Bless Kenny's family!

Kenny always sat behind me in  homeroom, except the year we had homeroom in the science room.  Always liked Kenny and was glad to finally find out how to say his name.  He always allowed the teachers to call him Oliver.  He will be missed.
