Kenneth Maurice Peele peacefully transitioned to his heavenly home on Monday, September 12, 2022. He was born to the late Wilmer Gail Peele and Rosa Bond Peele on August, 9, 1983.


Kenny, as he was affectionately known as, received his primary education in Beaufort County Schools and graduated from Washington High School in 2001. His favorite activity was playing in the concert and marching bands.


Kenny worked third shift as a Customer Service Clerk at Walgreens and worked diligently until his health declined. Kenny was a fun, loving, hardworking and also an admirable young man who loved the Lord whole heartedly and he never met a stranger! He would always greet you with a smile! He was an awesome stepfather and grandpa to his grandchildren.


Kenny was a member of the Temple of Jesus Christ under the leadership of Bishop James L. Woolard, D.D.. He participated in the Men’s Fellowship. He loved gospel music, especially quartet groups!


Kenny took an interest to playing drums at an early age. Throughout the years, he would play for the Youth Choir, The United Specials, The Gospel Choir and he also played for the All-Male Chorus until his health declined. He also accompanied his wife and played at Queen Chapel Church of Christ in Terra Ceia until his health declined.
