Kenneth Charles Fagan, 63 of Carsonville, born June 27, 1951 in Detroit, Michigan, left this earth on March 21, 2015 to begin a new life.
Kenny and his wife, Mary Simon, moved to Carsonville in 1980, where they raised their two wonderful children, Andrew and Carrie.
Together they totally remodeled their 125 year old farm house on their own, grew and sold Blue Spruce trees, and planted over 4,000 pine,
spruce and walnut trees on their 10 acre property.
Kenny was an accomplished carpenter and many of his customers ended up becoming good friends due to his honesty and his kind and gentle nature. Almost all of the wood furniture in their family home was built by Kenny. The gazebo he built for Mary was his shining star - a true work of art. Kenny was a life long athlete. He ran several marathons, played hockey until he was 53, rode his bike daily and took a 100 mile bike trip to the family 4th of July picnic for many years, and threw a mean horseshoe! Kenny once ran 50 miles just to see if he could do it! His favorite past time was fishing though. From the time he was a very young boy, Kenny always had a fishing pole in bis hand. His first boat was a inflatable ring held up by small barrels that he used to fish on the canal near his childhood home. No surprise that his favorite book was "The Old Man and The Sea" by Ernest Hemingway.
Kenny leaves behind his loving wife of 42 years, Mary Simon. Kenny and Mary met when they were only 7 years old and fell in love when they were 17! Mary always said how, lucky she was to find the love of her life at such a young age. He also leaves behind his adoring children, Andrew, and his sweet wife, Heather and his daughter, Carrie, and her terrific husband, Bill Hill. Four sweet grandchildren will miss their Grampa - Elliott, Lucy, Madison and Nicholas. Many loving family members and friends are also left behind to celebrate his life. Kenny's parents, Richard & Kathryn Fagan and brother, Patrick Fagan, preceded him in death. He both admired and loved them deeply.
