We played football together in jr. High and High School.

Kenney was my cousin, closest to me in age. He was always a very kind, gentle guy and we went to rival high schools. I went to Woodrow Wilson and he went to Kimball. I remember one year, our schools were playing against each other for district championship. My mom and I were invited over to ride with them to the game as it was at the stadium by the school. Well, we pulled up in the driveway with our streamers all over our car in Woodrow Wilson colors! They made sure we parked in the back of the driveway so no one would see the car there! Even though, my school won, Kenney and his dad were very gracious about it.
I know we will all miss this very special man very much. It still doesn't seem real to me. Thank you, Kenney, for being such a great cousin and for all the great memories we shared. My love to all the family.

Kenney was a sweet soul and a great gentleman. He was a great prayer warrior. He loved his friends. He loved his family. And he loved His Lord. We pray for comfort for all who will miss him so much.

“CUPCAKE” you will be missed. Kenny played ball with all the “old” guys like David & Bobby Houser, Wes Johnson, Terry Dale (RIP), just to name a few! He was a great big teddy bear and a great guy. Sincere Condolences to all the Formby Family. Valerie Waldrum Long 🙏💔
