Kenneth Michael Rutz died Jan. 7, 2012, in Camino, Calif. Kenny was born in San Luis Obispo, Calif., to parents Ken and Michelle Rutz on Nov. 14, 1990. He graduated from El Dorado High School at the age of 16 and shortly thereafter began traveling throughout North and South America. His consuming passion in his short life was knowing Jesus and fleshing out his life with whomsoever he met. He loved the outdoors and spent many years with family and friends snowboarding, wakeboarding, rock climbing, hiking and scuba diving.
Kenny is survived by his parents, Ken and Michelle; siblings, Joshua, Christi and Jonathan; grandmother, Joan; uncles, Matthew, David and Fred; aunt, Sara; and a multitude of cousins.
Services will be held at Green Valley Community Church, located at 3500 Missouri Flat Road in Placerville, Calif., on Friday, Jan. 20, at 3:30 p.m. Donations to the Kenny Rutz Endless Joy Memorial fund should be made online at endlessjoy.org.
