Kenny Grainger

Kent Edward Grainger, recently of Oak Point, Texas, passed from this life to be with the Lord Jesus to Whom he had committed his life, at 10:13 am, on March 11th, 2022, at the age of 39. Kenny was born on May 28th, 1982 in Lake Charles, Louisiana to parents Edward and Bernadette Grainger. He spent his early childhood in San Antonio before moving to the Dallas area. Following his graduation from W. T. White High School in Dallas, TX, Kenny enrolled in Texas Tech University, in Lubbock, TX. He recently received his Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Business Analytics from Grand Canyon University. He worked in IT Security and he was always working very hard to expand his knowledge and skills in order to better himself. He was very generous and helpful in sharing technical advice with co-workers, friends and family.

Kenny was an outgoing person who had a heart of gold. He made friends easily where he lived and worked, and kept them over the years. He never met a stranger and was always the life of the party!  He was very affectionate and easy to love.  He had a gift of making everyone he encountered feel special.  He was polite, well spoken, intelligent, funny, patient, and kind. Kenny was athletic and loved sports, especially basketball and football. He loved to track the status and progress of teams and players in the all types of sports.

Kenny married the love of his life, Sarah Grainger, who truly adored him, on September 9th, 2020.  Kenny has two children, Malia Grainger, of McKinney, Texas, and Rhiannon Grainger, of Carrollton, Texas. Kenny and Sarah enjoyed spending time at the pool, going out and meeting new people, eating at new restaurants, comedy shows, dancing, music, & cheering on the Dallas Cowboys.  They were inseparable since meeting.

Kenny is survived by his devoted wife Sarah Grainger, his parents, Edward and Bernadette Grainger, his brother, Brian Grainger, and sister-in-law, Cynthia Muñiz-Grainger; his daughters, Malia & Rhiannon Grainger, as well as many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and many, many friends. He was so loved and will be sorely missed.

I was fortunate to meet the fireball known as Sarah first and then the heart of gold man, kenny, soon thereafter. Of course we immediately bonded because that’s what kindred souls do. The man brought sunshine with him wherever he went and life will never be the same without him. That’s what happens when a bigger than life personality moves on to the next plane in the spiritual universe. R.I.P. kind soul.

I am proud to have called Kenny my friend. He was always positive and smiling. Always made you feel better just hanging out with him. Sarah is an awesome woman and they were a match made in heaven. With love peace and all the best.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
