In his early years, Kenny helped his father run the family’s business, Victory Bar. After graduating from Central High School in 1945, he joined the U.S. Army serving in WWII through 1946. Kenny was very proud that he was able to personally meet Pope Pius XII in Rome during his time in the U.S. Army. After serving in the Army, Kenny worked at Garton Toy Company where he met his wife, Leanne (Fiebrink) and married in 1968 at St. Cyril & Methodius. He retired from Schreier Malting Company in 1990.
Kenny was an avid golfer and longtime member of Riverdale Country Club, where he shot 5 ‘hole in ones,’ as well as an active bowler for many years with a 300 game at Root’s Lanes to his name. Kenny made many lasting friendships playing sports. Besides sports, Ken liked to fish and vacation with family on Pine Lake in Hiles.
The family would like to thank and praise the care givers at Sharon S. Richardson hospice for their exception care and compassion.
