This is very humbling for our family. My husband Ken has been on his own since he was 15 years old. Ken has worked hard for everything we have. And at this time he has not been able to provide like he used to. He has been unable to return to work since June 19th with the unexpected death of our 19 year old son Kenny Beaver. At this point Ken does not know when he can return to work. He's not only dealing with his own grief he is also worried about me, Kenny's mom, Andrea. This loss has destroyed our small knit family. The money being raised is to help offset the cost of living until Ken is able to return back to work and also to help pay for the funeral and creamation expenses.
We would like to personally thank each and everyone who has donated, shared and uploaded pictures. This means a lot to our family.
Kenneth "Kenny" Michael Beaver, Jr., beloved son of Ken and Andrea Beaver, passed away unexpectedly on the evening of June 19, 2017. He was born in Trenton, Michigan on August 23, 1997, and it was where his family resided until he reached the age of nine. After their move to Bothell, Washington, the family then became residents of Arlington, Washington. Kenny graduated from Arlington High School in 2016 and was a student of Everett Community College, pursuing a career in the Nursing field. He hoped to work in an area that gave him the opportunity to help save lives. He had many interests and hobbies, however, his fascination and love of cars was, by far, what he was most invested in. One thing about Kenny that stands out the most among all of the others would be, without a doubt, his incredible sense of humor. He had the ability to always make anyone laugh, no matter the circumstances. Kenny is survived by his parents, Ken and Andrea Beaver, his brother and first best friend, Andres Bird (Kyria), his Mammie- Sheryl Bird, grandmother, Laurie Yurkovich, his great-grandparents, Ralph and Faye Bird, great-grandmother, Vivian Morton (and family), great-aunt Judy (and the Cazier family), great-aunt, Sherry (and the Keene family), uncle Johnny (Chelsea) Yurkovich, aunt, Stacey Bird, uncle Bryan Yurkovich, cousins, Courtney and Chandler Bird, as well as many close friends and acquaintances. He is preceded in death by his maternal uncle, Timothy Lee Bird, great-grandfather, Kenneth Morton (Vivian) and his grandfather, Terry Lee Bird (Lucila). Services will be held in Kenny's honor at Beck's Tribute Center on Sunday June 25, 2017, from 12 p.m.-4p.m. Beck's is located at 405 Fifth Avenue Edmonds, WA 98020.
FROM ROB MCCOY:
I am here in support of Ken and Andrea Beaver, and to help cushion them from the financial burdens resulting from the sudden loss of their son Kenny Jr. I have been blessed to know the Beaver family for the last 4 or so years and am honored to be here to support them. The last 48 hours has been so filled with extreme grief mixed with extreme love as family and friends have come together.
Ken & Andrea have the extreme burden of planning and paying for services for their son. Obviously this is not something a parent prepares for. I am saddened that their choices for their son today have to be measured first against what they can afford, and denying an expression of deep love for their son for those reasons. I have watched Ken turn into a super human these last few days as he has immersed himself in these worries so he can do what he has always done so incredibly well which is to protect and shelter his family. His suppression of his grief is hard to see because as his friend who shares his broken heart, I can't help shelter him from these burdens.
Donations - 100% of the proceeds go to Ken and Andrea Beaver to offset the financial burdens associated with the loss of their son. Any money that may be left over I hope provides them with the means to be there for Andy, Kyria and the birth of their grandson Huxon.
Expression of love - Please use this page to communicate how you feel, to offer love and support to the family, to share a fun memory of Kenny, or maybe upload a private photo with Kenny Jr. Let's make this page a place where the family can go to in the future to remember Kenny.
