Kenneth Lyle DeMoss (1971-2020)

Kenn DeMoss, 48 years old, passed away on September 21, 2020. He was well loved by many who remember him from Vons as one of their favorite clerks. “I’ve known Kenn for years and miss him so much, he was always so friendly and happy.”
Kenn was born in Bakersfield, California to James and Wanda DeMoss on October 8, 1971. He was one of six children, Kathy, Kevin, Karen, Kim, and twin sister Kelly. At a young age Kenn began establishing his reputation as a crazy and adventurous guy. He began terrorizing the neighborhood on his big wheel then moved up to his off-road jeep, playing tricks on other drivers, and taking risks on the open dirt roads. “There was never a dull moment with Uncle Kenn, he would always manage to get into some kind of trouble,” as nephew James remembers.
After working at Del Taco while attending North High in Bakersfield, he started working at Vons. There he met his wonderful wife to be, Andreana, who was attracted to his easy going and friendly attitude. “He was hilarious!” Then on August 30, 1997 they moved to Ventura County, got married, and began a family. Kenn and Andreana have three wonderful children, Maddie (20), Jackie (15), and Kenny (11). He loved his family and shared many adventures and good times with them.
Some of his favorite times were during Fourth of July when it was legal to blow things up. There was always a story to be told around that holiday event. He lit the fire for great barbecues and cooking as well and joined a local barbecue team called Part Time Barbecue. Kenn’s pork ribs earned him a first place at the America’s Finest BBQ State Championship in San Diego.
Celebrations were important to Kenn because he loved having a good time with others. This love extended to the people in the community whom he got to see every day while working as a clerk at Vons in Fillmore since 2001. His love for the community extended to his service as a realtor where he truly enjoyed finding the perfect family home for those in the community. He loved to connect with people and make them feel important and especially make them laugh.
Kenn will truly be missed by so many people whose lives were touched by his kindness. The DeMoss family would like to express their thanks and appreciation for all the love and support the community has shown during this most difficult time of loss.
