Kenneth C. Jadwin, Jr., 61, of Crooksville died in the early morning hours of Monday, December 21, 2020 with his loved ones by his side following a months long courageous battle with pancreatic cancer.
He was born one of four sons on June 3, 1959, to his late mother, Irene (Sparks) Jadwin and his father, Kenneth Jadwin, Sr.
Kenny spent his working life employed by the Panther Medical Supply company where he was a commercial driver delivering necessary medical equipment around the country. To those who knew Kenny, they would describe him as a simple kind of man: he took great pleasure in the small things in life; like the unique grain of wood, the chanting during an OSU Football game or a home run hit in The Great American Ball Park. His dream place to live was in the beautiful and quiet mountains of Tennessee, where he had driven through hundreds of times. Of all the times he found himself in pure serenity doing what he loved, nothing brought him greater or more joy than that of being Papaw. His grandchildren were his life, the sun rose and set on their smiles which infected him with absolute happiness. His love for family was immense and he should know his kindness and love shown to them is known and reciprocated.
Left to mourn Kenny’s passing are his children, Angel (Brad) Creeks, Josh (Caroline) Jadwin and Jason (Jennifer) Jadwin; his father, Kenneth Jadwin, Sr.; his significant other, Kelly Johnson; his brothers, Roger Jadwin, Ronald (Danita) Jadwin and Mark Jadwin; the mother of his children, Candy Brown; his darling and deeply loved grandchildren, Hannah, Jayden, Clay, Hawke, Colt, Joshelyn, Jersey, Alaina and Aliviah and his precious great-granddaughter, Avalynn
Preceding Kenny in death are his mother, Irene Jadwin and his best friend, Marty Penrod.
