To know him was to love him; always cheerful but he had a serious side also. I was his social studies teacher an basketball coach. Kenny was an intense athlete and always a 'good' sport win or lose. Teachers [coaches] are not supposed to have favorites, but that is a myth. I had thousands of favorites having taught & coached so many students in my ten year tenure at Hamilton/Leverette schools. RIP my friend, God awaits you with open arms. You will be in my prayers. Fred Cohen, teacher, coach, and friend now and beyond
