In the midst of their sorrow, Kenneth's loved ones find solace in the knowledge that he is now reunited with his beloved parents Fernand (2012) and Barbara Knudsen Rochon (1997), along with many aunts and uncles who preceded him in death. Although this brings them deep sadness, they are heartened by the thought of the joyous reunion taking place beyond this realm.
Left behind to mourn his loss are his cherished siblings Cathy (the late Armand) Salvador, Carol (Roger) Mitchell, Ann (John) DaSilva, John Rochon, and Paul Rochon.
