Kenneth Cossey Johnson
Kenny was born to Kenny and Brenda Johnson on July 16, 1993 in Bakersfield, Ca. and returned home to be with the lord on January 5th, 2018.
Kenny is survived by his wife Reanne R. Johnson, kids Mona, Riley, and Bella. Parents; Kenneth D. and Brenda B. Johnson.
Grandparents; John Wayne Millington, Jimmy H. Cossey, Robert R. Johnson, and Judee C. Johnson. Cousins, Tyler R. Johnson, Jessica A. Williams, Uncle Brian and Aunt Sandie, Uncle Brent and lots of other family and friends.
Kenny was our only child but, his cousins Jessi and Tyler were raised with him and were like sister and brother to little Kenny.
Kenny was a kind and generous person, who had many friends, he had the ability to make people laugh, draw people to him wherever he was but, most importantly made them all feel close to him. Kenny had no problem with his friends and family being on his tab. (whether he knew it or not) He was a person, as you know, who liked to have fun in everything he did and lived life to the fullest every day.
Kenny’s talents and hobbies were many, he enjoyed different ones throughout every phase of his short life. As a little guy, he liked playing Play station, riding and racing bicycles, playing the guitar, drums, roller hockey and his famous hysterical self-composed beat box.
Kenny inherited a competitive spirit from his Grandpa John Wayne, Uncle Brent, Uncle Brian and his Dad 5P senior. Kenny really loved and excelled at his ability to ride and race motorcycles. Kenny won his first motocross championship at the age of 5 at Bakersfield Speedway after I (his dad) had to push him down the hill on the start, causing him to crash into the side of the hill, bent his front forks and he got up and still won the race.
Kenny throughout the years went on to win several other motocross races and championships, Kenny especially liked to compete with his family and friends in the Big 6 Grand prix series and had reached the expert/pro level. During these times, our family met a lot of great people which, Kenny continued to be friends with beyond motorcycle racing and often talked about all the great times and memories he had racing those events. Kenny really enjoyed camping at the big 6 races and Mick City ( best people in the off-road community) every thanksgiving, I think it was because he knew he would meet new friends.
As a young adult Kenny learned how to weld and became a rig welder at an early age of 19 just like his dad. While gaining various welding and construction experiences, Kenny worked at several construction companies; PCL, UCI, Energy Link and Bullet proof fabrication. Through these experiences Kenny developed the foundation for his great work ethic. As the California oil and energy markets took a downturn, Kenny Tyler and Anthony took to the road to find work. They (the three amigos) traveled to, Texas and North Dakoda to work. Upon completing several projects in the east, Kenny had made the decision to return home to California specifically, to see his baby Bella be born.
Recently Kenny had joined the union, Local 342 and loved the new challenges of the PG&E and gas company pipeline work.
Kenny immediately made a lot of new friends who he respected and recently shared with his mom and I that, he looked forward to learning everything he could from these craftsmen and specifically an “old school guy” named Darrick Little. Kenny was a left-handed welder and was greatly appreciated by all his brother in law pipeline partners.

Kenny will be greatly missed by all of us. Please keep his memory alive in your hearts and daily show acts of kindness to one another, just as Kenny would to you. It is not goodbye son, its see you later when we get to heaven,
P.S. please save us a good spot!
