For the past 20 years Kenny has been a part of the Wal-Mart Family, starting in the hardware department in Jasper and working his way to management. His latest position was at the Millbrook, Alabama store where he has been the store manager for the past 6 years. He loved his Wal-Mart family and served them well as a boss and as a friend.
He also served the citizens of Millbrook by volunteering in many different areas of the community. He served on the YMCA Board of Directors, the Millbrook Area Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors. He was a member of several civic organizations such as the Coosada Millbrook Kiwanis Club. He truly loved the AWF, the Alabama Wildlife Federation, and was involved in many AWF events as a volunteer. He blessed many people with the heart that God gave him, but more importantly was his decision as a young boy to give his heart to the Lord.
Donations can be made in memory of Kenneth D. Hinds to the Alabama Wildlife Federation, 3050 Lanark Road, Millbrook, AL 36054 or to the YMCA, 4700 Camp Grandview Road, Millbrook, AL 36054.
