Kenny loved anything to do with racing. He drove in the pony division at Spring City and Wartburg speedway in a baby blue/yellow mustang with the #33 on the side. Getting to spend time enjoying what he loved with his brothers, grandkids, and special friends is something he enjoyed every weekend. He was inducted into the Wartburg Speedway Hall of Fame in 2021. He cherished that moment until his last breath. Proud was an understatement! Well-known and well-loved by the racing community on and off the track!
The family will receive friends Friday, August 26, 2022, at Schubert Funeral Home in Wartburg from 4:00-6:00 p.m. with the funeral to follow at 6:00 p.m. Interment will follow in the Petros Cemetery behind the Church of God.
