Kennel was born on November 11, 1946, and departed this life July 22, 2003, at the age of 56. He was the
son of the Late Kennel Slone, Sr. and Myrtle Hicks Slone Handshoe.
He leaves to mourn his passing his wife, Betty Carolyn Slone; 3 sons, Timothy Wayne Slone of Bulan,
Kentucky, Jamie Slone and Kennel Jason Slone (and daughter Kendra) of Amburgey, Kentucky; 2 daughters,
Lisa Gail Soto and Carolyn Sue Slone of Georgetown, Kentucky; 4 brothers, Alex Slone, Burton Slone, Daniel
Slone and Danny Ray Slone; 4 sisters, Hazel Henson, Margie Hill, Cynthia Henderson and Rosia Lee Slone;
seven grandchildren; and a host of relatives and friends.
Kennel was unable to join the church and be baptized after making his peace with God. Some of the last
words he spoke were “Praise His holy name.” It was a great blessing to watch the change that came over him
the last months of his life as he prayed. He has left a good testimony behind and we feel that he is at peace in

|“No Tears Over Me”
As my walk wit you has ended,
You know I still must travel on.
For I’m going to be with Jesus,
And our Father on his throne.
I know you may want to cry,
But it’s not the thing to do.
So, please don’t shed a tear,
For I’ll be watching you!
So, as they carry my body
To it’s final resting place,
Sing some songs of praise.
With a smile upon your face,
Because I’ll be with Jesus.
So, as they lay my body down,
Please don’t cry for me.
Over there I’ll be waiting,
To greet you with a smile.
For we will be together,
In just a little while.
