Kendall, Kenneth Wayne


Kenneth Wayne Kendall, Sr., 59, of Salem, went to be with the Lord surrounded by loved ones on September 2, 2019. He was born in New Castle on November 16, 1959, to Bob and Phyllis (Welch) Kendall. Loved for his sense of humor, he was known as a man who would get the job done, a master plasterer and outdoor sportsman. He will be greatly missed by his fiancée, Missy (Spites), his children, Kenneth Wayne Jr. and Crystal, Joshua Darin and Elizabeth, Nicole Wren and Shauni (White).

He is survived by his siblings, Bo and Patsy Kendall, Janice and Robert Fridley, Barbara and David Fridley, Frances and Gary Kendall, Donna and Sam Old, Carol and Barry Owens; grandchildren, Kasey, Kenzy and Bruce Kendall, and Alexis and Dakota Williams. Special thanks to all the family members who provided care and to Bo and Patsy who cared for him in their home.

His life, officiated by Pastor Kevin Altizer, was celebrated at First Baptist Church of New Castle on Saturday, September 7, at 2:00 p.m. Visitation with the family was held before the service began at 1:30 p.m. Online condolences can be made at
