Later they moved to Inola and this has been home since.  Kenneth enjoyed baseball, basketball, football, and watching the OU Sooners sports.  When he was in high school, he was the star player on the basketball team.  Kenneth also enjoyed fishing, hunting, and golf.  His family meant the world to him and he took great care of them.  Although a quiet man, when he spoke it was with wisdom and kindness.  Even before he became a Christian, Kenneth lived a morally and upstanding life.  His friends and family could always count on him in time of need.
