I know Kenny would not want us mourning him, but I can't help it.

He was such a unique individual - a tough, big-hearted, funny-as-heck guy who adored being out in nature and especially rock-climbing. He was so badass (in the very best of ways). He red-lined the fun meter while he was in the game and grabbed life by the horns. I will miss you, KWT -- many great climbs in the sky, dude.
