Kenneth grew up in Midland and Odessa, Texas and attended school in both cities.  He also lived in California, Gatesville, and Wichita Falls before moving back to Odessa.

Kenneth was married to Roylene Burton, which ended in divorce.  Together they had one son, Kenneth Dale Kuykendall, Jr.  Ken did all types of work from the oilfield to mechanic work, and even painting signs.  He was very talented.  He loved music; he could play a guitar and sing; he was an artist.  He loved to draw, paint and he was always designing something.  Ken liked to make things, he was always tinkering with something or building a porch (although he never finished), he also enjoyed working on his truck.
