Kenny "Moon" Diehlman, age 80 of Louisville, Kentucky passed away on Friday, March 1, 2024 peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family. He was born on June 3, 1943 to the late Lawrence George and Angal Justice Diehlman. He attended Holy Family Catholic School and graduated from Durrett High School in Louisville, Kentucky.
