Kenny Vincent

October 19, 1942 — January 26, 2023

Wilmington

Kenneth H. "Papaw Kenny" Vincent,
age 80, of Wilmington, Ohio, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family, Thursday morning, January 26, 2023.
He was born October 19, 1942 in Canton, NY, son of the late Edmund & Eleanor (Taylor) Vincent.  He was one of eight children.  Ken was a hard worker starting at an early age, learning a hard work ethic that lead him to being an Operating Engineer and Crane Operator for 50+ years.  Early in his career, he moved from New York to Ohio to help build I-71.  After many years of being with the love of his life, Flojean (Slater) Vincent and Ken finally married in 1988. Flo passed away in 2013. Flo and Kenny owned and operated the local Dairy Queen across from the courthouse in Wilmington for over 20 years.
Ken loved his granddaughters and his great-grandbabies more than anything else in life.  He cared little for anything else, as long as he was around his girls, he was happy.  As his shell is no longer here with us, he will live on through each and every one of them.  He is survived by his siblings, Diana, Edmund, Karen and Karla, Debra, & Greg; his son- Duane (Noel) Slater; granddaughters- Danielle (Wyatt) Slater and Bridget Slater; daughter-in-law- Tanis Marlin; great-grandchildren- Graclynn Smith, Blake Wood, Slater Newkirk, & "soon-to-be" grandbaby Wood, his dear friend and sister-in-law- Wendy Slater; and several nieces and nephews.
In addition to his parents and wife, Kenny was preceded in death by siblings- Donald, Bobby & Cindy.
