We lost my great uncle on November 4th, 2020 from cancer. Uncle Kenny was born January 6th, 1945 in Mississippi and grew up with 4 older siblings while being raised in Alabama. He was a veteran who joined the army at an early age. He was in the 82nd Airborne, and a paratrooper with over 100 jumps. He served his country with 3 tours in Vietnam. After retiring from the army, he learned he had been exposed to agent orange. This was what predominantly led to his cancer and he suffered from PTSD. Uncle Kenny would be considered a wanderer by many. He traveled a lot between the great states of Mississippi, Florida, and South Carolina. In all these places you can find flowers at his family’s homes because he loved to plant and grow.
His last wishes were to be buried by his father in Stringer, Mississippi. The funeral home he wished to use is Riemann Funeral Home and can be reached at 228-539-9800.
With all the expenses that are stacking up, all we want as his family is to give this wanderer a place to finally call home. The one he wished for.
Your help is be greatly appreciated. If you cannot donate, please share it on your social media.
Any money that is collected beyond the expenses incurred fulfilling Uncle Kenny’s last wishes will be donated to Wounded Warrior Project. I can be personally reached for any questions. Thank you and God bless.
