Kenneth attended Eastern Alamance High School and was employed with Cone Mills, Haw River, NC for several years. Kenneth was extremely witty and quite a wiz at joke-telling. He loved to laugh, but he especially loved making others laugh. One of Kenneth's beloved pastimes was watching his favorite western, "Gunsmoke". He affectionately nicknamed his grandkids: "Songbird", Knee-baby" and "Cool-man". He enjoyed listening to music and would often request that his "Songbird" sing his favorite song, "Take Me To The King".
