Kenny Ray Decker, Jr.

September 26, 1998 — April 15, 2024

Kenneth Ray "Kenny" Decker Jr., aged 25, of Louisville, Kentucky, passed into eternal rest on April 15, 2024. Born on September 26, 1998, in the same city, Kenny's vivacious spirit and boundless generosity became his hallmark throughout his all-too-brief journey among us.

Those who had the privilege to encounter Kenny knew him as the quintessence of a 'Funcle'-fun and caring in equal measure, always eager to elicit a smile or share a hearty laugh. His innate ability to brighten any gathering will be profoundly missed by all.

Kenny leaves behind a loving family: his mother, Amy Higdon; his father, Kenneth Decker, Sr.; his Grandmother, Lynda Rengers; his siblings, James Higdon, Courtney Castle (Higdon) alongside her spouse Miranda Castle, Kyler Higdon with his spouse Kaitlyn Higdon, Marissa Ludwick, and Jessalyn Hardy (Guess) with her husband Christopher Hardy. He will also be fondly remembered by his uncles and aunts, Patrick Rengers, Larry Decker, Jeff Barrett, Valerie Hazelip, and Charlotte Barrett; as well as his cherished cousins, Chassidy Rengers, Dustin Rengers, Brandie Thomas, Shawn Thomas, Nicholas Daugherty, Charles Decker, Michelle Decker, Michael Decker, Bryce Barrett, and Amber Barrett.

Kenny was preceded in passing by his beloved grandfather, Michael Rengers; grandmother, Bonnie Decker; aunt, Jackie Thomas; and cousins, Austin Rengers, Devin Williams, and Troy Lewis.

The family wishes to extend their gratitude to Newcomer Funeral Home for their compassionate assistance during this difficult time.

Services to commemorate Kenny's life will be conducted at Newcomer Funeral Home, Southwest Louisville Chapel, 10304 Dixie Highway, Louisville, Kentucky on Wednesday, April 24th from 2-8 pm. The family invites you to join them in honoring his memory and celebrating the joy he brought into this world.
