He was raised in the Coleman community in Drew County and was a country boy through and through. He knew the woods like the back of his hand and found joy in hunting and fishing of all types. Every summer, he spent his time growing a beautiful garden and canning his favorite relishes and jellies. He was known for making some of the tastiest pickled okra you could find. One of his favorite parts of growing his garden was sharing the vegetables and canned goods with his friends. He was a loving man with a kind, generous heart who would give you the shirt off his back. He worked as a millwright for Clearwater Paper and was a very skilled welder. Kenny was a hard worker, someone you could count on, and the true definition of a friend. He never hesitated to help someone out or pitch in when needed.
Kenny is survived by his four children, Cheyenne (Tikko) Austin of Monticello, Raven (Chris) Garrett of Glendale, AZ, Heath (Desire') Harrod of Maumelle, and Ali (Chris) Fougerousse of Greenbrier; and grandchildren, Lindsey and Avery Austin, Kingston, Carson, Easton and Lincoln Garrett; Savannah, Nathan, Judah, and Wyatt Harrod, and Straisley Fougerousse.
A memorial service will be held at 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, July 12, 2022, at Oak Grove Assembly of God Church in Monticello. You can sign Kenny's guestbook page at www.stephensondearman.com.
