Birth: Jan. 30, 1922, USA
Death: Sep. 26, 1943
Denver

Flight Officer Kerkeles was returning from a training flight heading to Lowry Field when his B-24 developed engine trouble. According to the book 'Dear Joe', witnesses claim the pilots kept the plane in the air longer than was safe for them, and by doing so they missed a residential area before pancaking into an open field, killing all aboard but with no loss of life on the ground.
Kenneth attended East Nashville High School.
