He continued his military career after Vietnam serving in the Continental United States and Pacific regions until he retired after 23 years of service. After the military, Kenny worked as an electronics technician for the Federal Aviation Administration, as an aircraft electrician for the US Air Force, and as a cross country truck driver for a national carrier. Kenny is now a Licensed Officer with the US Merchant Marines as a Ship’s Master (Captain).

He also volunteers as a Visitation Minister with a hospice organization in Northeast Wisconsin. As a visitation minister, he does what is called “companion sitting” with the patient, whereas he spends time with the patient providing companionship to the patient and their families. Kenny also maintains an online ministry website where he shares the love of Christ Jesus worldwide through daily devotions and lectionary scripture readings.

He is ordained as an Associate Chaplain Minister and continues his studies with CLI , with over 100 credit hours, working towards a Bachelor of Divinity with a Chaplaincy Emphasis.
