Kenneth loved his family dearly and the life he lived reflected that. After his Naval service, Kenneth worked for the NNK Electric and then worked as a farmer and waterman. He worked hard and created his own business as a building contractor, Kenneth D. France and Sons. His work ethic was legendary. There was not a thing he couldn’t accomplish that he set his mind to. He took time to travel, and he loved trips with his family. Kenneth was also an avid deer hunter and he and his dogs spent many happy hours hunting in the woods.
Left behind to cherish his memory are his beloved wife, Ann; his son Ken France (Rosie) and their sons Paul France and Evan France; his son Daniel Elwood France and his daughter Faith Ann France; his daughter Pamela France Dungan (Chris) and their son Rylee Dungan (Lindsay); all of Newland. Kenneth is also survived by his sisters: Ellen Burruss, Ruth Chappell, Jennie Bishop, and Cassie Haynie; many nieces and nephews and other extended family and friends. Kenneth was predeceased by his parents, two sisters and three brothers.
