Dusty and Mark,
Sad to hear we lost another one.
Thanks for posting this, I’d like to know more. Are there more details to follow?

We lost Kenny in a single vehicle driving accident about 9 PM Oct 4th in the Lake Arrowhead area.
Dianne and I are heartbroken.
Keep the pics and memories coming.
We love you Meg.
I spoke with Mike Johnson this evening. Mike talked with kenny 4 days ago. Kenny was in good spirits and recently has been doing some powered flying while waiting for the forests to open back up.October 5, 2020 at 8:52 PM #10344Ken HowellsGeneral Member
It’s a real bummer to lose Kenny like that. He sure lived life on his own terms!
We had fun saying “Hi Ken” to each other. Good times flying.

Ken and I became good friends through our shared love of the late day glass off ridge running. We have both been flying long enough to know the conditions we are most fond of. I will miss him greatly. Here are a few pics flying with my friend “Kenny Whack Westfall”October 6, 2020 at 8:42 AM #10346
We’re truly sad to learn that he passed away. 😔 He was a good guy and will be missed. I remember he loved Chloe (yellow dog) a lot and would always stop and give her his full attention whenever he walked by at the LZ. ❤️
Here are a few photos I was able to find of Kenny. If I find more, I’ll share them.October 6, 2020 at 1:44 PM #10352October 6, 2020 at 5:59 PM #10355Jonathan DietchGeneral Member
I made this little insider’s homage to Kenny. Turn the sound up and you’ll get it.
Don’t forget his YouTube channel. He loved making videos.

I had fun with Kenny for a long time. He and Dave Childs used to pick me up to go flying before I had a driver’s license.

I am saddened by the loss of Kenny. Sigh.
It’s good to see from the pictures that he seemed to be enjoying life before the end.October 11, 2020 at 7:47 AM #10395
Always a joy to be around and great pilot so long Bud.
