Kenneth Eugene Penn, age 60, of Crane, Texas passed away suddenly at his home in the early morning hours of January 3, 2018.
âEugeneâ as his friends and family called him, was a hard working, fun loving, hard playing, and sometimes obnoxious man that loved his family dearly. He was very straightforward in his speech and didnât mind telling anyone who would listen that he was proud of his family, his fast cars, and his sometimes crazy antics.
Eugene was born in Andrews, Texas to Kenneth and Annette Penn on July 20, 1957 and began his construction career early by working with his dad as a teenager. Eugene and his wife, Gwen, began Penn Trucking and Construction in 2013 and the business continues to thrive in the oilfield thanks to Eugeneâs immense knowledge of the oilfield construction business and Gwenâs patience and ability to manage the office and Eugene.
Eugeneâs family will miss his laughter and unique sense of humor and feel quite certain that he is currently entertaining all those who predeceased him.
Eugene was preceded in death by his father, Charles Kenneth Penn; paternal grandparents, Cecil and Emma Penn; and maternal grandparents, B.F. and Dorothy Thomas.
Survivors include his wife Gwen Penn of Crane; his daughter, Katie Jo Penn of Cisco; two sons, Dylan Wade Penn and Eathan Kyler Penn, both of Eastland; his mother, Dorothy Annette Crockett of Hobbs, NM, and his sister, Gina Ann Reeves of Cisco.
Visitation will be held at the Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Home in Crane on Thursday, January 4, 2018 from 10:00 am until 8:00 pm.
Funeral services will be held at 3:00 pm on Saturday, January 6, 2018, at the Kimbrough Funeral Home Chapel in Cisco, with burial to follow in the Oakwood Cemetery.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Home of Crane, and Kimbrough Funeral Home of Cisco.
