Kenneth Lloyd Henry, age 82 of Hendersonville, TN passed away Saturday, March 2, 2024. He was born June 23, 1941 in Difficult, TN to the late Melvin and Willie Mai Henry.

Kenneth had many loves in life, but first and foremost, he loved his family. It always brought a smile to his face anytime one of them walked into the room. Another love was dancing with his wife Barbara. During their retirement years, they would go dancing as many as three times a week! He and Barbara were such good dancers, that they taught numerous others, including a couple of their daughters and spouses. They were known by their friends as the real "Ken and Barbie". He also loved to "Coon Hunt". He got that from his father. When he heard the dogs barking because they had a raccoon treed, that was music to his ears. Another love was music. Most of his favorites were from the "Fifties", but also had numerous others he loved. He loved to jog, and in his prime he would jog around the Ford Glass Plant during his break. Later he started walking a lot and would walk as many as nine miles at a time. Lastly, he loved to watch the Titans and UT football games and UT basketball. 

Kenneth was preceded in death by his parents, wife, Barbara Henry; two sisters, Bessie and Ruth; four brothers, Larry, Troy, Roger, and Michael; and great-grandchild, Jersey. He is survived by his children, Irene (Rick) Eanes, Jeanie (Tim) O'Guin, Rene (Kristin) Henry, Tammy (Chris) Cole, and Robin (Kerri) Henry; sisters, Barbara (James) Denning, Carolyn (Anthony) Bishop, and Debbie (Tracy) Rife; grandchildren, Mike, Angel, Rocky, Ricky, April, Mike, Tina, Timothy, Lara, Sean, Shane, Ashley, Leah, Audrey, Mackenzie, Trinity, and Dakota; and great-grandchildren, Nick, Brandi, Jackson, Jayla, Lacy, C.J., Meela, Violet, Hailey, Mason, Bella, Yazmin, Tahj, Kailyn, and Maddox; and three great-great-grandchildren, Nylah, Nasir, and Paisley.

Thank You for Your Service
Thank you for your service.
You served your country well.
You also served so many others
This much I can tell. 
You served your parents faithfully
And oh, so loved your mother, 
You were her first born son
You came before four others. 
You served your brothers and your sisters 
When they were in need,
They knew they could rely on you,
On this they all agreed.
You served your wife with love
And cared for her so much.
You brought to her security
And a gentle touch.
You served your children gallantly
You were someone they looked up to
You made them strive to be better
And try to be more like you. 
You served your grandchildren in so many ways
Of some they’re not aware,
By being you, you improved their lives
With hard work, love and care.
