Kenneth (my uncle) was also known by family and friends as K.C. He was one of 13 children in his family; he had 5 brothers and 7 sisters. Now his 2 brothers and 6 sisters and lots of nieces and nephews miss him very much!! His wife and 3 children also miss him very much.
Although his military Home of Record was Lowland Hills, NY, he lived in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania.
K.C. was 31 years old when he died. He had his whole life ahead of him. We miss him a bunch!!
