He attended Middletown Elementary, Middle and High Schools, graduating in 1967. He was proud of playing on an undefeated football team throughout his high school years.

He went on to play baseball at Salisbury State College (now Salisbury University) where he earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education.

Kenny was an avid sports fan who especially enjoyed watching his children and grandchildren play their various sports. He took great pleasure in coaching Little League teams and football at St. James School. Kenny also loved to go fishing and collecting baseball cards.

He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Kay (Harner) Walker; Daughter, Kelly Walker and husband, Eric Kennedy; Son, Kasey Walker and wife, Maryellen (Smith) Walker; and Son Korey Walker and significant other, Brandy Davison.

He is also survived by twelve grandchildren, Emerson Kennedy, Matthew Gabriel, Halle, Christopher, Alexander, Maxmilian, Rosemarie, Thomas, Charlotte, Benedict and John Walker.

His other survivors include, Sister in law, Patricia Lewis; Brother in law, Howard Harner and wife, Lynn Harner, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Kenny would want to thank all his family and friends, especially the Worthington and Ferguson families for enriching his life and always being there for him in his time of need.

The family wishes to thank his many doctors, nurses, aides, and medical personnel who provided care, healing, concern, and compassion over these past 23 years.
