My condolences to Kenny’s family . He will be missed by many, especially those in the music community.
My heart aches with sadness with this news. I am so sorry Sharon and my condolences to all of you. He was a good friend to me and I’ll miss him.
My sincere condolences to Kenny’s family, friends and musicians with whom he gigged. Kenny and I would talk drums, accomplished drummers and memorable gigs. Kenny enthusiastically shared his gear and his knowledge. Thx Kenny.
Dear Sharon and family; such a sad time when I heard of Kenny’s passing, but his struggle is over, and he’s probably playing drums in heaven! He’s been a family friend for many years, and a neighbor at two different places! I also watched him playing with certain bands, and got the experience of the barefoot drummer which was pretty interesting. I will miss our visits, and seeing him walk down the street! Take care of yourself Sharon, Kenny would want the best for you, he loved you more than anything.Cherish your special memories they will come flooding back when you least expect, and you’ll laugh again! Sincerely,Donna, Henri and McSherry family
Sharon and family – Ken was one of the first daily passengers I met when I started driving bus 16 years ago. He was an interesting character with a million stories, and had a way of starting a humour-filled conversation with anyone who would take the time to listen! I am so sorry for your loss.
