Kenneth Cathey was born in 1942 to Ruth and Ernest (Dick) Cathey. He had two brothers, Robert and Paul. He was married to Lynne Cathey and had three sons, Danny, Josh, and Adam. He also left behind five grandkids.
Kenneth was resident of Heber Springs, AR and Bridgeport, TX. After serving his country as a marine, he lead a very successful life in the transportation industry for 50 years until he decided to retire in 2005 to travel and spend time with his family. He loved to travel and made many friends along the way!
His biggest contribution, however, was the love he gave his family. He loved his family more than anything. He was always there to guide you in the right direction and was usually always right even when we didn’t like it. He will be missed by many and more than he will ever know, but we are grateful for the many, wonderful memories he gave us.
