He was a life-long member of Elks Lodge #51 and the Masons, and a past President of the Springfield Liedertafel Club. Kenny was an avid golfer who played regularly until he was 94. He scored numerous holes-in-one and played every course in Clark County. He was inducted into the Springfield/Clark County Baseball Hall of Fame in 2011. Survivors include three children, Sandra (John) Freshour, Patricia (Michael) McClelland and Linda (Darrel) Lytle; daughter-in-law, Cheryl Wise; seven grandchildren; 16 great grandchildren; and special nieces and a nephew. He was preceded in death by his wife, Betty, in 2007; son, Danny; grandson, Craig; and a brother, James. The family would like to thank the staff of Oakwood Village, Woodlands Assisted Living for their attentive and compassionate care of Kenny.
