    Ken and I have known and lived Kenny since the mid 1970’s. We enjoyed his humor and loving ways at Weesha, Lake Powell and many family parties these past 45 years. We are proud of his beautiful family and his many accomplishments. He is missed. Love donna and ken friess

    I have known the Tonkovich family for over fifty years. I consider Kenny, Don and Paul to be the most loyal and true friends of my lifetime. They addicted me to become a “River Rat” at the Parker strip. Kenny taught me how to build a “river house”. My daughter is named after Kennys` late wife Seanne. I will never forget the fabulous good this family has had on my life. May God bless them all. Love Larry Tyson

    Kenny and I have been very good friends for many years. Kenny, myself and several other buddies (Ralph Muirhead & Ron Rubideaux) were all close friends.
    Kenny will be sorely missed and always remembered.

    My sympathy and warmest thoughts are with you now. Kenny was a true friend and I am so glad to have known him for many years. He loved life and so enjoyed his family. One of the “good” guys. I truly miss him.
