The Colokid has passed

david52 Zone 6May 13, 2013

Our friends on the forum haven't heard of KennyP, aka "Colokid", for a while, it seems he's passed on. At the link is an obituary that Steve found.

RIP. He was funny, intelligent, self-deprecating, and we'll miss him. Search for his knick-name on the forum to remember his curiosity, tinkering and above all his wit.

Thanks, Steve

R.I.P. Kenny. Even though I never met you.

He will be missed. I really enjoyed his posts on the forum. I'm sad that I never got to meet him in person.

digit and david52, thanks for sharing the info.

Rest in peace, indeed.

Thank you for letting us know. I thought of him just the other day as I was picking out tomatoes to plant, as I remembered that was his specialty. I met him and his wife once, I think at my second swap at Charlotte's, and he brought a bunch of tomato starts and seeds. That was the same swap that I first met Karen (catladysgarden) and her husband Glen (who passed on a short time after that), when they brought a whole truck bed full of day lilies.

I remembered him to be a sweet man, and enjoyed his posts as well.

Happy eternal gardening, Kenny!

Thanks for posting this, David (and Digit!). I had just left on my trip and missed it when I got back. And thanks for linking the obituary. I wish I had had a chance to meet him sometime, but it was nice to have a picture of him, and very interesting to read about all the things he had done in his lifetime.

I always enjoyed when he joined in our conversations around here. First thing that came to mind was several discussions we had of the Dust Bowl--he lived it!

I'll miss him. Happy tomato gardening, Kenny.

I like this part, "KenâÂÂs friends and neighbors said that he could fix anything." And look at him on the Internet in his 80s! I love it. What a sad loss.
