The Uncle I never met...

Uncle Kenny was my mother Debby's oldest brother. There was Kenny, Priscilla, Lucille, and my Mother from My Maternal Grandfather Jerry Fetter and my Grandmother Ouida "June" Putnam. Uncle Kenny was talked about often around the holidays. From what I heard growing up my moms parents took it hard. I will forever honor you Uncle Kenny, I look forward to the day we can finally meet. Your Nephew Tim Thurber

Uncle Kenny

Uncle Kenny was always brought up when I was little. He was my mother Debbys oldest brother. His mother Ouida June Putnam Fetter was my maternal grandmother. My aunts are from oldest to youngest< Priscilla, Lucille, and Deborah (my mother) being the youngest. I never got a chance to meet my grandfather, all I know is that his real name is Jeremiah Fetter, he lives somewhere in upstate NY, and that he and my grandmother divorced years before Uncle Kenny was killed in Vietnam, and that he had re=married and had more children according to my mother. I do know his death took a heavy toll on my grandmother and my mother and aunts. I am the son of a Marine from R.I who also served two tours in Vietnam, so I have always had an interest in Uncle Kenny. I have had the original obituary from Schenectady, NY. from when he was killed Feb.20th, 1968. I researched my uncle whom I had never met, and began to respect this man with all my heart. I came to find out he died during the Tet offensive in a place called "War Zone D" near the Iron triangle in Binh Duong Province, South Vietnam. He was killed alongside his friend, and fellow Sergeant Michael Picard of Montana. I recently sent his Picture that has hung on the wall in my mothers house all my life to the Virtual Vietnam Online memorial. Uncle Kenny can be found there by simply clicking "F" and finding him through his last name. All though my mothers family is estranged from one another, Uncle Kenny was always honored in my family growing up. I will never forget the stories from my mother and Aunt Lucy about how cool my Uncle Kenny was... Your name will carry on in my family through my children. God Bless your heart, and the ultimate sacrifice you made for your country... Your Loving Nephew,,, Timothy J. Thurber of Providence, Rhode Island

I remember you..

I was 9 when I heard that "Kenny died". You were the quirky teenager who goofed around with us Nehring kids up at Aunt Sue's camp on Galway Lake. My mom is Marilyn Balazovich-Nehring. We honor you, as I again told my story of bravery and sacrifice that put your on The Wall to a group of young students in my class. You were so very young, it is even sad now, almost 50 years later, that your life was cut short. God bless you!
