Kenneth L. "Kenny" McCartney, age 73, of 31 N. Ohio St., Dellroy, died suddenly Wednesday morning, Aug. 8, 2012, at his residence.
Born Jan. 26, 1939, in Monroe Twp., Carroll Co., he was the son of the late Kenneth A. and Elizabeth J. "Betty" Markley McCartney.

Kenny attended Dellroy Nazarene Church and proudly served his country as a veteran of the U.S. Army. He was an active member of Dellroy Ruritan Club. Kenny was known as a hard-working man who enjoyed mowing grass, and was always known to be good to his neighbors.
