About Kenneth
Brother Richard also perished in the fire.

"Kenny and Ricky came from a wonderful family. Their parents were wonderful people. Very kind and generous. There were two other brothers also. Their family was devastated with the deaths of two of their sons. They eventually moved out of the neighborhood and close to the cemetery so they would be able to visit their graves everyday."
-(Carmella Comaroto, Neighbor) 

Interred: St. Adalbert (Niles, IL)
Memories of Kenneth
Kenneth was our next door neighbor on Central Park along with his brother Ricky. Kenny was older than me, but all of the kids in the neighborhood used to hang out together and play. He was a good kid. We all had fun together. We used to play outside for hours on end and played all kinds of games. We especially loved to play baseball in the alley. I have never forgotten those kids.
