Obituary for Kenneth M. Shores

Kenneth Marion Shores, age 60, of Farmville,VA. passed away on June 23, 2014. He is the son of the late Marion Ray and Della Stinnett Shores. Kenneth was born on March 14, 1954 in Farmville,VA. He was a member of Grace Chapel Living Waters Ministries and the Piedmont Geriatric Local Human Rights Committee. Kenneth spent a lifetime advocating for people with disabilities, including working with students at VCU, working with the VA Department of Rights for People with Disabilities, and serving on various committees. Kenneth believed everyone deserved a chance to succeed. Kenneth was best known for his vast array of historical knowledge. He worked on many projects including research on the Chesterfield Coal fields and First Baptist Church of Manchester in Richmond; the former resulting in the erection of public parks and the later published works. He spent most of his historical research time focusing on his family roots in Fluvanna County and Cumberland County. He has produced many useful, yet unpublished, manuscripts whose parts have been used in the research of others. He spent decades working on several books that remain unpublished. He expressed a hope that someday his great-niece, whose love for writing is as great as his, will finish the works. He was a gifted writer and storyteller who used humor to tell the secrets of the past and inspire others. He is survived by his sisters; Pamela Hubbard (Thomas) and Virginia Shores, several nieces and nephews; Lisa Lockner (Sam), Thomas “Danny” Hubbard (Chastity), Christopher Shores (Diana) and great nieces and great nephews’ Erica Williams, Olivia Shores , Abigail Shores , Ashby Shores and Thomas Hubbard. He was preceded in death by his parents and one nephew, Anthony Shores . Family will receive friends on Saturday, June 28, 2014 from 5:00PM – 7:00PM at Puckett Funeral Home. A memorial service will follow at 7:00PM in the chapel of Puckett Funeral Home. Memorial contributions may be made to Grace Chapel Living Waters Ministries, 45 Simpson Rd, Prospect, VA 23960. Puckett Funeral Home is serving the family.
