There was a lovely man on the marina
who was taken ill the other day
an ambulance was called for him
it came and took him away

They say it was fluid on his lungs
never quite felt well again
had some problems with his legs
seemed to be in some pain

His mates from the marina rallied
called in to see how he was
was noted as saying ''I won't be home''
''won't see my boat again'

He sadly passed away in hospital
on his own in the hospital bed
half an hour after mates had left,
just a doctor a nurse and his meds

Some say you were a loner, quite and reserved
others would disagree, saying
''give 'ole Kenny a tune or two
he'd be up for a dance or three''!

One thing is for sure,
he loved the company of his mates
a meal and a drink or two at ''Dundees''
then home to his beloved boat !

Farewell dear Kenny, God Bless You
a soul who kept quitely to himself
The marina will be a sad place for a while
I will miss your smile and salute !

Those who knew you well, will miss you
the chats and stories shared
others just will show their respect
as the flags are flown at half mast

I'm sure on a Sunday afternoon
with a beer or bottle of red
the gentlemens ''church group'' will raise a glass
turn to your boat and wish you''full steam ahead'' !
