Kenny was the Valedictorian of his 1989 Man High School graduating class. He graduated from West Virginia University in 1993 with a bachelor of science degree in Mechanical Engineering. His love for solving problems and mastering technology was evident in both his personal and professional endeavors. Most recently, he worked for Fusion Technology as a Vice President and Principle Systems Engineer. While his life was cut short, it was full and adventurous. He loved traveling, scuba diving, challenging himself with Crossfit, capturing moments with photography, cooking as well as spending time with family and friends. On game days, he was always faithfully cheering on the Mountaineers and the Pittsburgh Penguins.
Kenny was known for his generous and giving nature. As a reflection of his generosity, in lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made in Kenny’s memory to a favorite charity.
