Kenneth Lee Jennette

October 2, 2015

BUXTON-  Kenneth Lee Jennette, 52, of Buxton, was a man of many hats including proud father, grandfather, brother, uncle, cousin, co-owner of Cape Point Exxon, and diehard Redskins’ fan.

With peace in his heart, Ken spent his last days surrounded by devoted friends and family and departed for Heaven on October 2, 2015, after a short illness.  Many angels await him in Heaven, but he looked most forward to being reunited with his Mother.

Ken was son to the late Evelyn Gard Hedrick and Bernard Lee Jennette.

Left to cherish his memory are his son Kenneth Kane Jennette of Greenville, NC and many other children he loved as his own; his sister Tracey Hooper and spouse John and their daughters (Amber Schultz, her spouse Brett and their daughter Paizley; Laura Hooper; and Abby Hooper); his sister Stacey Jennette-Meiggs and her son, Matthew of Elizabeth City, NC; and his aunts Gerry and Mary; and many adoring cousins; and a host of friends.

Ken loved Hatteras Island and could not have imagined living anywhere else.  So, it is appropriate that after weeks away from home his journey on Earth ended here on Hatteras Island.  His beautiful spirit will be missed by all who were blessed to have known him.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 10, 2015 at 4:00 pm, Heritage of Faith Family Church in Frisco with friend and Pastor David Stowe officiating.  A gathering of friends and family will follow immediately at the home of Tracey and John Hooper.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Hatteras Island Food Pantry @ P.O. Box 1591 Buxton, NC 27920, or Hatteras Island Meals @ PO Box 854 Buxton, NC 27920.

Condolences to the family may be expressed via the online registry at www.gallopfuneralservices.com.  Gallop Funeral Services, Inc. was entrusted with the arrangement of our loved one.
