On February 22, 1994, God gifted the world a King. Kennard began his journey as a boy who would light up our world. He held our hands for a brief season yet will hold our hearts forever.
Kennard was a mama’s boy, glued to her hip. He was known as “The Baby” by his older siblings because he was spoiled and got whatever he wanted. He was sarcastic in nature and had a comeback for everything. You could always catch him joking and pranking with family and friends. His infectious laugh and smile brought joy to all who were acquainted with him.
At a young age, Kennard attended Increasing Joy Ministries with his grandmother, where he accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. Kennard demonstrated leadership abilities and maturity far beyond his years. He was an old soul, making connections with the young and old alike. His pleasant personality was contagious to everyone he met. Kennard approached life with the confidence of a giant, no mountain too high, no valley too low.
The simplest of pleasures in life brought great joy to Kennard. He loved spending time with family and friends, traveling and playing video games. Kennard was THE BEST uncle to his nieces and nephews, who affectionately referred to him as, “Uncle Head”. His love for children reached far beyond his family. In his spare time, he could be found volunteering at local youth programs fostering long-term connections, which resulted in positive outcomes.
Kennard’s academic endeavors included graduating high school in 2013, from Palmetto High School. He continued his education by obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Edwards Waters College in 2018.
