My thoughts and prayers goes out to the family of truly a great man. I have known Kenneth for over 20 years and there was no other like him. Kenneth would sell me parts when he knew I did not have the money to pay for them. He would just hold the tickets and would tell me to see him when I would get paid. I know that I'm not the only one he did that for. He was truly a great man and is missed every day at Truck Parts. It was always a fun time when I would go into Truck Parts. I always knew he would have something sarcastic to say and I would just throw it back at him. He could dish it out but also take it.There will never be another Kenneth.

Joan, Dave and I are so sorry to learn of Kenneth’s passing. It has been a difficult time for you as well as your dear husband of many years. Death changes the life of the survivors but God always has a plan and in no way intends pain for us so we go on trusting in our maker as he knows best. Time heals all the pain! With love.
