Whenever I think of my Uncle Kenny I remember his love of music. Smoke gets in my Eyes by the Platters was one of his favorites and to this day remains very special to me. I remember him playing trombones, drums, and xylophone down in Grammy and Gramp’s basement and of course the gray painted upright piano in the parlor. In fact, he gave me one of his trombones which turned out to be a gateway instrument which led to my playing coronet and later the (just in time for the arrival of The Beatles) guitar. My Dad and his brother Kenny loved music so much. That gene was passed on to me as well as my son John.

Kenny was a great uncle and all of those that knew him will never forget his sense o
...f humor. When I think of you Kenny I will smile and remember…and will miss you always.Read more
