He graduated from Toms River High School East in 1983. Kenny worked for Ocean County Building and Grounds for over 10 years.

Kenny was an animal lover, as a young boy he would bring home birds with broken wings in an attempt to save them. He would also be found building shelters for stray cats in his neighborhood. He had a big heart. He was often the one everyone relied on for his tinkering and handyman ways. Kenny also enjoyed fishing and camping with his son, Brandon.

in lieu of flowers, donations in Kenny's name to any animal rescue shelter or any organization that helps homeless people would be appreciated.
