Our deepest sympathy

We are at a loss for words…. From the time Kenny and family moved to the neighborhood in North Carolina, there was new energy in the subdivision! Kenny was such a great friend to Matt… from basketball, to Group prom dates, even the crazy day of hair coloring! There was always laughter when Kenny was around. Such a loss for so many… our deepest condolences to all….The Weyenbergs.


Kenny and I attended Officer Training School together. He was an excellent man, and good friend and flightmate. I cannot express how sorry I am to see of his passing, and my prayers are with his family, and his wife and son. As requested, in lieu of flowers, a donation was made to the Wounded Warriors Project, which is a great way to honor him and his service, and I’m glad that that request was made. My heartfelt condolences to you all.


Thank you for your service to our country you gave your all

Please accept our deepest condolences

Kenny was a friend and UK fraternity brother of our son, Andrew Schneider. We met Kenny on several occasions as he spent time in our home and went with us to Cincinnati Reds and Dayton Flyer men’s basketball games. We have fond memories of Kenny. He was a quiet and friendly young man and we are so sorry for this tremendous loss to your family. We thank him for his service to our nation and for the ultimate sacrifice any serviceman can make. Good bye Kenny and may God’s blessings be upon you and your family. Paul & Linda Schneider Louisville, KY
