    Exclamation Kenny's Discus , Please Read Everyone, This is really Important.

    Hi all,
    I have to share some very sad news with you all. Several weeks ago Kenny called me with devastating news. I was floored, literally crushed. He has been diagnosed with Terminal Cancer recently..and its very advanced. It hit him hard and fast.

    He needs to focus on his family at this time, and so is leaving the hobby to spend his remaining time with his family. He asks you to respect his privacy here and on Social Media off SimplyDiscus.

    Kenny wanted me to thank all of his customers and friends for their concern the last few weeks and their Support all these years.. Kenny's Discus has Closed Permanently as a result of his condition.

    He asks that you not try to contact him because in his condition he really can not reply and really needs to conserve his strength for what time he has left for his family.


    Kenny has been many things to many people here at Simply.. For me he has been a dear brother and close close friend for decades. The Hobby is losing a Giant that set the bar higher than anyone I know, and we are losing a friend like no other. I know we will all miss him dearly. Life is not fair, and this is terrible proof of that.

    If you all wish to post something here for Kenny, Please do, and keep him and his family in your Thoughts and Prayers. Should Kenny or his family update me I will pass it on... but please do not contact him. He does not know how much Time he has left, and that time is for his Wife, Sister and Niece.

    Thank You,
    Al

    What terrible news. I'm so sorry to lose a dear friend.
    At my age, everything is irritating.

    I am new here on SD tho quickly learned how important Kenny and the high quality Discus he has bred to sell through the many years played an important part in raising the bar and setting high standards for Discus husbandry across the country.
    I am so sorry for his families loss and the Discus communities loss and especially for Kenny!

    Iím in shock. Kenny has been a huge part of the amazing experiences Iíve had here on Simply Discus. The regular interactions on Simply and social media will be hugely missed. Kenny has been an icon in the discus community and even greater friend.

    I am praying for Kenny, his family and his friends during this time.

    Respectfully,

    That's absolutely terrible news. Kenny has provided so many nice fish to so many people on here over the years - a legend! I remember speaking with him on the phone and he wouldn't sell me fish that he knew I would not be happy with. Take care Kenny!

    Thanks Al for informing us so eloquently. My thoughts and prayers go out to Kenny and family. The discus world will never be the same wo Kenny. He is the epitome of niceness and decency and I’m blessed to have known him as I have. God be with you K.
