Kenneth was a graduate of Bowman High School. He obtained his Bachelor of Science degree in forestry from the University of Georgia. Kenneth later met and married the love of his life, Ruth Seymour. He soon became vice president of a pulp and paper company owned by Tenneco, a leader in the forest industry in the 1970s and 1980s. Kenneth and his family resided in Savannah, Tenn. After his retirement, he and his wife moved back to Bowman, Ga. In 2014, they moved to Brunswick, Ga., to be closer to their children and grandchildren. Kenneth was a member of Bowman Baptist Church.

Two precious great grandchildren, Emmalyn and Leonidas also survive.

Kenneth loved to spend time with family and friends. He also took great pride in providing for his loved ones. Kenneth was quite a World War II history enthusiast. He also enjoyed the hobby of collecting. Kenneth will be missed by all who knew and loved him. His family will have many fond memories to cherish for years to come.
