Coach Kenny was one of our favorite ,not only as a coach, but as a teacher and a good Christian man. Our family will truly miss him. He touched many lives and is a perfect example of a great American. God will be with him and his family as Kenny rests in eternal peace.

This wonderful man was a God send to a lot of children. He helped mold them and he loved the children he worked with. Bryson Gilbert was very thankful to Ken Beerbower and loved him and he liked Bryson a lot. He worked so well with his football team. He was an all around beautiful man and earned his stars in his crown.
