  4. To the Kennon family, you have suffered a lost of a man that had maybe had a rough exterior, but inside he was a gentle person and had a heart of gold. I knew Lindell from the coffee drinkers at Plank Road and then Shake and Steak. He talked often of his family and grandkids. He loved you all very much. May our prayers give you the strength to get through the days ahead.

  5. My heart goes out to all of you. Keith is an amazing person, a great son is a reflection of an ever better father. Godspeed Mr. Kennon.

  10. Dear Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We always enjoyed his wonderful humor. Jim and Bev Dugal

  11. Watching the video bought smiles to my face. Working with Lindell on the city council was challeging and fun. We had disagreements, but at the end of the day it was for the good of Farmington. One thing we could always agree on was the love of cars and anything associated with cars. Lindell was a good man and he will be missed. My condolences. Dan Combs

  12. Although we have been neighbors for 7 years, I'm sorry to say that I didn't get to know either of you very well. I do know that Lindell would always smile and speak, anytime that I would see him out in your yard. I don't know of anyone who had a more upbeat attitude during treatment for cancer. He would say "Yup..I drive myself to the city every day for radiation treatments". That says a lot about him. May God comfort and bless you in this time of sorrow. Sincerely, Dee Owens

  14. Rose, Keith, Julie, So sorry to hear of Lindell's passing. May God give you all comfort and peace as you grieve. Lindell was always so funny and upbeat!! I remember you having me stay with Keith and Julie to make sure they didn't get into trouble when you all went square dancing!!! Hold on to those good and fun times and hold on to each other!! Many blessings, Anita Civey Burch
