Kenny Keen died peacefully at home, as he wished, surrounded by his loving family on April 23, 2019. He never met a stranger, and was a friend to all. His courage and stubborn determination were legendary, as was his penchant for conveying one percent truths. Kenny lived a life of loyalty, integrity and honor at home, and as the owner of his business, Agri–Dealers Supply. He loved road trips, baseball and UK. Most of all, he loved his family. He is survived by his wife of 42 years, Peggy, his daughter Jennie (James), and sons Joe (Lauren) and Jeff. He was an adoring grandpa to Camilla, Brendan and Eva, who will fondly remember their games of chutes and ladders and trips on Grandpa’s lap to the magic window. We will miss him dearly. Kenny was preceded in death by his parents, Ann and Charles Keen, and his sister, Penny. He is also survived by his brother Tom and sister Nancy Dorsey. He will be missed by his extended Maschmeyer family, his church family, as well as the Friday night village and his amazing BBC buddies.
A celebration of Kenny’s New Life will be at Christ the King Church at 11:00 am Saturday April 27, followed by burial at Calvary. Visitation will be at Highlands Funeral Home from 2:00 to 7:00 pm on Friday April 26. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to Sister Visitors in Louisville or the Amani Centre in Tanzania. Kenny visited this humble centre for physically disabled children which touched him having lived with the effects of Polio since early childhood. Donations should be made to Father John Judie Ministries attn. Amani Centre, 2804 Wareham Rd, Louisville, Ky.40242. May Kenny rest in eternal peace now healed of all earthly constraints.

I'm so very sorry. Kenny was one of my best friends in high school and my roommate senior year at UK. We shared hundreds of car trips to Lexington, nights at Jeanne Becker's house talking to her father, and arguments about who's handprints were there on the wall of the apartment. On one of those trips we passed a herd of cows laying down in a field and he told me that whenever you see cows laying down like that, it means it's gonna rain. I think about that every time I pass cows laying down. He was there when I fell in love for the first time, drove me to Richmond to visit her and listened to me crying when she left. He was my good friend and I'm guilty of not keeping up with him when our lives went in different directions. He was a good friend and a good man. I'm so very sorry for your loss.

Kenny and I had fun exchanging friendly UK vs UL barbs over a cold beer many an afternoon. I never remember him without a smile on his face. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. My deepest sympathy's to his family.
