Memories & Candles
So sorry to hear about your dad. I have childhood memories of playing at your home when we were in grade school and especially jumping on that great trampoline! I hope you see this--I am just seeing this mpw and it has been a couple months. I know, in grieving, that is a very short amount of time. Thinking of you--

Kenny Wilke was a really nice guy! My earliest memory of him was immediately after his and Peg's wedding. There was a lot of activities around his parent's home in Earling, Iowa. Everybody was young then, and we all had a very noisy and happy time together.
Kenny was a special man. He was a hard-working man and he loved his family! He will be greatly missed. My family shares in your grief and our best wishes to you all!

My first memories of Kenny are of going to McDonald's in Omaha, sometime in mid 60's. I didn't know what it was and there was a big buildup ahead of time. Then it seemed like there were 43 kids in the back of a station wagon.
Kenny was always friendly and kind and we always loved being around him. And he was always one of our entire familiy's favorite.
Godspeed, Kenny. We will miss you.
Danny O'Neill and family

Giselle and family, I am truly sorry, but Kenney was wanted for a bigger job somewhere up high. Probably to take care of all his brothers. He'll walk thru those pearly gates with no problem. You are in my thought's and heart.

Thank you for everything you have taught me. You made me who I am today, and I thrive to be a better person just like you. You never judged us for our decisions, you let us learn from our own mistakes and was always there to pick us up when we failed. I will never forget your passion you had for our family and friends, and the generosity with everything you did. Thank you for being the most amazing grandpa
