Ginger, I am so sorry for your loss. Kenny was such a servant of God. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
My wife joins me in sending our most heartfelt sympathies for my cousin, Kenny’s passing. At the same time, we also rejoice in the fact that he is now with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, the son of the living God. I must look at my parent’s tombstone which to me says it all: “PRESENT WITH THE LORD – PHIL 1:21” He most certainly was greeted with the statement, “…well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
Our love to the entire family, Terry and Susan Jaramillo
Kenny Corn was a great blessing to many. His love and devotion to the students at Fruitland Baptist Bible College was a wonderful example of what it means to be a Godly shepherd and minister of the Gospel. Kenny was a great professor and colleague. I enjoyed the many years of serving along side of him and discussing the Sermon on the Mount with him. He was a tremendous blessing to me personally in many ways and at many times.
Ginger and family so sorry to hear about Kenny our prayers and thoughts are with you during this time. He had such a humble spirit. Love Deanna, Dean and Derek Ring and Becky Sargent
Kenny was such a great person and strong Christian. I am very sad at his passing for the family. His legacy will live on in the many lives he touched over his years here on Earth. His gentle smile and sincere laugh will always remain in my memory. So very talented and so humble. I’m sure he is leading a new choir in Heaven. Rest in peace my friend in the loving arms of our God.
Sweet humble Kenny ….. sending love and light to all who will miss him, but especially to his wife Ginger and children
