He enjoyed bowling and spending time with family and friends.

Kenny was the last surviving Active Charter Member of the Gamber & Community Fire Company. He served on many committees including Bingo, Country Dances, the 400 Club, and the annual carnival. He was also President of the fire company in 1977. Most recently, Kenny was chairman of the Memorial Committee which oversees the memorial located beside the fire station.
