Kendall was born December 30, 1999 and went to be with the Lord Wednesday April 21, 2021.

He was born in Las Vegas on December 30, 1999 where he lived until just before turning five. There he loved riding horses and participated in several gymkhanas. After that he moved with his parents to eastern Kansas where he resided until his death. He grew up in Lawrence attending Deerfield Elementary, followed by Central and West Middle Schools and graduating from Lawrence Freestate High School in 2018. In his youth, he enjoyed creating elaborate Lego creations, riding bikes and building forts. In middle and high school he found a love of wrestling, riding skateboards, and playing viola in orchestra. He wrestled for Central and West Middle Schools, Freestate High School and was a member of Lawrence Elite Wrestling Club. In addition to school orchestra, he additionally participated for a short time in Lawrence Youth Symphony. As a young adult he became fond of live music and going to concerts with his friends and long-time girlfriend.

Kendall had an amazing heart and always showed incredible compassion for others. Though his life was cut short, he was able to save lives through the ultimate gift of organ donation. He was a loving son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin, and friend.

    Kendall, I miss you so much already. I can just feel your spirit in my presence and it breaks my heart every time to look over and see you’re not there. You taught me about everything good in life. Good times with friends and family, how to trust and love, how to take care of others, just how to enjoy life and living. I promise Kendall everything I do going on without you will be in honor of you and to celebrate your life. We had so much things planned that we didn’t get to live to see together, so I’m going to do everything to live them out for you. You can watch over me and continue to bless me with your good luck and big heart. I know it’s what you would want to see me do.
    There’s so many little things I remember you by. Yes, it hurts right now to think about them but every day I will get a little stronger because of those things and you. I’m trying my best Kendall. I’m going to get better for you and live out my life for you.
    I love you so so much with all my heart. And I will never ever forget you. I’m so sorry that your life was cut so short. I’d do anything just to see you one last time.

    I still remember the day we met, in Mr Greenwood’s physics class. You sat next to me, a case of Mountain Dew in hand, I remember asking you for a can and you giving me one. Who would’ve thought that a sugary drink could’ve sparked one of the greatest friendships I ever had. Those days we spent in the woods I do remember, you were quite the explorer and adventurer and I will never forget how much you loved to explore. I loved being your friend. Although you were busy and couldn’t hang out a lot, you were my best friend. I miss you so much. Goodbye, my friend.
    Yours truly, Joel.

    Delores – Can’t even imagine the level of grief you must be feeling. I remember sitting next to him in church several times. He was really a delightful young man. Prayers that God will comfort you and your family during this sad time.
