He was a member of the Jr. Chamber of Commerce in Shreveport, Louisiana, Hutchinson, Kansas and Jackson, Mississippi, serving as President and Vice President of each location. Keny was raised to Master Mason in 1979 and was a member of both Joppa Lodge and W H Booth Lodge. While at Booth he served as Worshipful Master in 2005, 2019 and 2021. Ken joined the Bossier Parish Posse in 2010 and served proudly until the time of his death. He was very proud to be on the Funeral Escort Team.

We know you are now in the hands of God. May you rest in peace, Ken.
