Kenny Gracy was one of the sweetest guys I knew from elementary school into college.

We were good buddies and always had the wonderful school age affection for each other.  I remember him always grinning.  I think he always wanted to play sports but was (I guess?) too small and so contented himself as a great trainer and general spirit lifter.  He was excellent at both and being a good friend.

The last time I saw him, I was transferring to North Texas from Texas Tech and we ran into each other on campus in Denton.  He was so happy.  He had a wonderful new girlfriend and they were talking of marriage.  I told him I was so glad I would get to see him more since I was transferring to NTSU in the Fall, but he was killed in a one-car accident in Garland that summer of 1971.

I still see his wonderful smiling face.  God Bless Kenny!
