Share your Memorial with Family & Friends
Kenneth Michael Kroll, passed away on Monday, September 20, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. He was the most loving, caring, and joyful husband, father, brother, uncle and friend anyone could ever have. His laugh always lit up the room, and he was a friend to everyone he met. He will be sadly missed by family and friends but will forever be in our hearts.
Kenny was born on September 29, 1963 in Welch, West Virginia. He was the seventh of eight children born to Julie Diachenko Kroll and Frank Kroll. After graduating from Bluefield State with an Electrical Engineering degree, he first moved to Charlotte to work with IBM and then moved to the space coast shortly after and started his career at NASA.
Shortly after, he met the love of his life, Charlene D. Robinson. They were happily married for 28 years and had one son, Kenny. He loved his family dearly and was incredibly proud of his son.
During his lifetime, he enjoyed spending time with family and friends, walking the beach, and traveling to his second home in Knoxville. Kenny was always the life of the party and was a wonderful host to everyone. He always enjoyed grilling out with friends and family.
He was preceded in death by his parents Frank and Julie Kroll and brother, Patrick Kroll. He is survived by his loving wife, Charlene Kroll and son Kenny Kroll, his six siblings Frank Kroll III, David Kroll (Iris), Jerry Kroll (Rhonda), Juliana Whitt (Rod), Chris Kroll (Carrie), and Michael Kroll (Angie), as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

A celebration of his life will also take place at a later date in West Virginia.
A million times we’ve needed you,
A million times we’ve cried.
If love alone could’ve saved you,
You never would have died.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
No one else will ever fill.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone.
Part of us went with you,
The day God took you home.
