Kenneth Earley, 65, of High View, WV unexpectedly passed away on Sunday, March 12, 2023 at Winchester Medical Center.
Kenny was born in 1957 in Baltimore, MD, one of fourteen children of the late Frank Ambrose Earley and Lillian Rose (Haynes) Earley. He grew up in McLean, VA and owned his own company as a General Contractor. Kenny served our country as a Lance Corporal in the United States Marine Corps. He loved hunting, riding his Harley and was an avid collector of war memorabilia. He loved the Orioles and Ravens. He loved watching Western movies, playing darts, music and spending time with his children and grandchildren. He was a devout Catholic and was a member of the Knights of Columbus 3rd degree, Legion of Mary, and just recently joined the jail ministry to pray and counsel inmates.
