Barnett, Kenneth Ray, age 53, of Nashville, TN, died May 5, 2021. Kenneth was born in Pennington Gap, VA, and grew up in Harlan, KY until moving to Nashville, TN in 1987. Kenneth was an exceptional father, son, brother, uncle, and friend to all who knew him. He was a proud dad and even prouder papa. Ken could always make you smile, laugh, and see the positive in everything. He was an exceptional worker, a Jack of all Trades, and was willing to help anyone at any time. Ken loved his Tennessee Titans, NASCAR racing, and fishing. However, his true hobby and passion were anytime he was on his Harley Davidson motorcycle. He thoroughly enjoyed weekends when he and Darrel were figuring out where their next ride was. He loved telling stories about his rides with Darrel, Linda, Eric, Amy, Rob, Heather, and his friends from work. Kenneth will be loved and forever missed by so many. We know he is with his precious mama and papa right now. Kenneth was preceded in death by his father, Verlin Roberts, and his grandparents, Hobart and Ethel Barnett.
