Kenneth “Kenny” Jay Converse
age 57 of New Germany, MN.
Kenny left us Wednesday, November 9th, peacefully surrounded by loved ones.
He was preceded in death by his beloved “ma” Joyce Converse.
He is survived by his daughters Taylor (Mac) Clifton, Samantha Grengs and grandson Mavrick Clifton. His sister Carolyn (David) Wick, brothers Keith (Rhonda), and Kevin (Brenda) Converse. Several nephews, nieces and SO many loving friends.
Kenny is the youngest of 4 siblings who were raised in a home full of laughter, love and music. Growing up, he was well known in the neighborhood for his friendly & outgoing personality, getting to know just about everyone. His love of sports started as just a little guy, but he understood the game better than most adults.
At Rockford High School, it’s no surprise, again, everyone knew & liked him. He was captain of the football team and of the wrestling team. When he finished giving the valedictorian speech at his high school commencement, you could have heard a pin drop.
When walking into a room, it didn’t take long to know if Kenny was there…his great laugh could be heard immediately, and it was contagious. He always had a smile along with a mischievous twinkle in his eye for everyone.
Other than watching sports, football especially, playing and coaching sports, Kenny loved his fur baby Bella, singing & karaoke, concerts & music festivals, the MN Vikings, his family, and being with his friends.
He was the epitome of a salesman…charismatic and knowledgeable, spending most of his career at Vergins Sales starting at age 15.
After many years of the well-known “Kenny’s bar” out of his garage, his dream of owning a bar was finally fulfilled in January 2016; Kenny’s T-Road Tavern in New Germany, MN.
His huge personality touched so many, his big laughter made us all smile…he will be missed and remembered by so many. He was a son, a brother, a husband, father, grandfather and a friend. We love you Kenny.
Please join us for a Celebration of Life, on Friday, November 25th, 2:00pm at the Delano American Legion. At Kenny’s request, Taylor asks that everyone wear Vikings attire. Go Vikes!
