Kenneth Edgell, age 70, left this life on September 11, 2017 as a result of a three-year battle with appendiceal cancer. Within moments, Kenny's sole and spirit were in the presence of his precious Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ – "Today you will be with me in Paradise."

Kenny was born on July 27, 1947, in English, WV, to June and Harry Edgell. He graduated from King George High School and earned both a Bachelor's and Masters of Science Degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University. Season-ticket holders for 35 years, Kenny and Tima loved VCU basketball. Go Rams!
The first half of Ken's work-life was spent as a computer programmer at the Naval Surface Weapons Center/Dahlgren working mostly on the Mark 92 Fire Control System. The second half was with the US Department of Transportation joining the newly-formed Drug and Alcohol Testing Program and eventually became its leader. On retirement, Ken continued that work with Pipeline Testing Consortium, of Hutchinson, KS – whom he declared "the best group of people I ever worked with."

Kenny enjoyed playing golf and baseball/softball until his body suggested otherwise. Ken was the "Voice of the Foxes," announcing KGHS football games from 1970 until 1991, (with his friend Charlie Peyton). He inherited this role from his father, Harry, and friend Joe Haag, founding members of the King George Quarterback Club. Kenny was active in his church – his love in later life --especially building semi-elaborate set decorations for Vacation Bible School children's plays (with his buddy, Walker Janney). He also worked with Child Evangelism Fellowship in its beginning days at Grace Fellowship. But, receiving the knock at the door from the Lord Jesus and being saved was Kenny's greatest achievement in life. And now, he lives in Heaven.

Kenny is survived by his wife Helena (aka Tima) Edgell, three sons: Brandon Edgell, Zack Zorn of Richmond, and Rusty (Shannon) Mastin; four daughters: Tessa Rawlette, Bridget (Mike) Carli of Hudson, WI, Susan (Jason) Turner, and Courtney (Justin) Bridges; brother, Harry Edgell of Salem, VA; niece and nephew, Lauren and Landon Beckelhimer of Columbia, SC; sixteen grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. Ken was also married to Sandra Hammer, mother of three of his above children. Ken was preceded in death by his parents: (the beautiful) June and Harry Edgell; sister, Kathy Edgell; and, his beloved Maltese, Buddy.

A memorial service will be held at Grace Fellowship Church, 1600 Stafford Ave, on Sunday, September 17, 2017 at 3:00. Anyone wishing to make a donation in Ken's memory, may do so to the Grace Fellowship General Fund or their favorite charity. Kenny's earthly body was cremated and a private internment will occur at a later time. Condolences may be left for the family at www.storkefuneralhome.com.
