Kenneth Whitehead, age 72, of Somerset, departed this life on October 31, 2015, at Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital.

Kenneth was born in McCreary County on July 22, 1943, to the late Oscar and Sarah Tucker Whitehead.

He was a veteran, serving his country in the United States Air Force. Kenneth had become a collector of many themes, particularly building a “Doo-Wop” music collection. His favorite holiday, his “Christmas”, was Halloween; he loved to keep track of the neighborhood “Trick or Treaters” from one year to the next, and delighted in seeing his visitors.

He is survived by his wife, Imogene Brooks Whitehead; his son, Kenneth “Butch” Whitehead, Jr.; and his daughter, Kimberley Ann Whitehead, all of Somerset.

Kenneth is preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Roger Whitehead; and his sister, Carita Hosier.

Southern Oaks Funeral Home is entrusted with the arrangements for Kenneth Whitehead.
