Kenyoun attended Ellet High School where he was known for his friendly, loving and humorous personality; along with a smile to light up the room. Kenyoun was so full of life and was always laughing. He loved his family, friends, and video game. He was very family orientated, full of love and determination. He will also be remembered for his ferocious appetite.
