He loved and cherished his family and his dear friends, and those who knew and loved Kenny will always carry his memory in their hearts. Kenny is survived by his beloved mother and father, Wendy L. MacMurray of East Tawas and Kenneth C. MacMurray of East Tawas; his brother and best friend, Ian MacMurray of Saginaw; his cherished companion dog, Bree; maternal grandmother, Connie LeClair of Tawas City; paternal grandmother, Mari MacMurray of Tawas City; many aunts, uncles, cousins, and special friends.
