Kenneth “Kenny” W. Knigga, 70, Dillsboro – Radio WRBI

Kenneth “Kenny” Wayne Knigga was born to Wilbur and Esther Scholle Knigga on August 14e, 1951. He grew up on the family farm on County Road 550 in Dillsboro, Indiana. Kenny graduated from South Ripley High School and attended Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. After earning a business degree, he returned to the family farm where he lived for the rest of his life. He retired from Anchor Glass as a maintenance man.

Kenny was known for his cheerful personality, kindness, intelligence, and his ability to outdo a handful of men half his age. He loved family, friends, history, travel and a good game of euchre. He was a foundation to his family and community as well as a faithful member of St. John’s Lutheran Church at Farmer’s Retreat.

Kenny was predeceased by his parents Wilbur and Esther Knigga, his brother-in-law William “Bill” Lovins and his niece Denise Lovins Roark. Kenny is survived by his sister Carol Lovins, his nephew Tom (Becky) Lovins, his great-nieces and nephews Norman (Amanda) Roark, Tanner (Amy) Roark, Casey Lovins, Cody Lovins and his great-great-great-nieces and nephews Eleanor Roark, Blaine Lovins, Shawn Roark, Dennis Roark and Leo Roark as well as his faithful canine companion Bobby the dog prodigy.

Kenny will be greatly missed. His family gives thanks to the loving God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ who saw fit to bless us so graciously with his presence and to bring him mercifully home to dwell eternally with his Creator and Redeemer.

Family and friends can gather to remember Kenny from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, August 13, 2022 at St. John’s Lutheran Church at Farmers Retreat.
