Kenneth A. Ward Jr.
Kenneth (a.k.a. Pete or Kenny) A. Ward Jr., age 54, of Gloversville, died Monday, February 17, 2020, at Nathan Littauer Hospital, Gloversville.
He was born December 18, 1965, in Gloversville, the son of the late Kenneth and Wilma May Ward. He had worked at Taylor Made Systems in the past, prior to his illness.
A huge animal advocate, Kenny loved all animals, whether they were his own or not. He tried in his power to give animals a voice and protect them from harm. He was a man of few soft-spoken words, but he made what he said count. He had a big heart and always thought of others. Kenny had very strong beliefs, especially when it came to politics. He enjoyed following his New York Giants and New York Mets teams. He enjoyed spending time at home with his family and playing his video games. He was very social on Facebook and made an impact wherever he was. Kenny will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.
Kenny is survived by six brothers and sisters, Gerald Parker of Longview, TX, Doreen Hernigle and Larry Ward of Fonda, Lynne Ward, Douglas Ward and Dawn Ward of Gloversville; aunts, Carol Guy and Valorie Canfield of Gloversville; several nieces, nephews and cousins.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a brother, David A. Ward; a sister, Bonnie Knight; and several aunts and uncles.
