Kenneth was born to a family of musicians and truly had a love for music. As a teenager, he was a singer in the local group, The Lincardos. He would often be heard humming or singing a tune. 

Kenneth was a sports enthusiast. He played basketball and football in his youth for local teams. He loved to sit back and relax in his chair while watching games on TV.

He loved riding his Harley Davidson and often took rides to Cape Cod.

Kenneth was proud of his heritage and being a part of the Laurel/Clayton Community where he built lasting relationships and enjoyed attending their reunions.  

Music, sports and love for his family was the fabric of who he was.
