Coach Kenny Roark Has Passed Away
Kenny was a great friend and if he ever met a stranger, I missed it. Despite his success as a player and coach, he was a very humble and down to earth guy. The man would quite literally give you the shirt off his back if you needed it. There is a long line of players and coaches who are better for knowing him, and I'm glad to say that I had the opportunity to become friends with him during my time at Middlesboro.
My memory of him will be this: He was a man who loved his friends and family... and believed in keeping them close and enjoying the time he had together with them. I guess he knew exactly what I'm feeling now - that time is indeed too damned short.
He will be missed.
