Kenneth was born in Orange, Texas, on May 9, 1953, he was the son of Lester and Ouida Ballard.

He was a natural born mechanic and was able to teach all his boys those lessons. He was also sure to teach all of his children how to drive stick shift. Kenneth could work on any car, and he loved to ride motorcycles. He enjoyed fishing in his spare time and boiled the best tasting crawfish you could find. Actually, he really loved to cook anything on the BBQ pit. He was very creative when it came to food!

Kenneth loved nothing more than his family, he absolutely cherished his children and grandchildren, who lovingly called him Paw Paw “B.” He was truly loved and will forever be missed by his family and friends.
