Winfred Kenan

February 19, 1962 ~ May 19, 2022 (age 60)


Winfred Kenan was born February 19, 1962, to Edgar Kenan and Lenora Bryant Kenan in Duplin County. He departed this life on Thursday, May 19, 2022, at Vidant Hospital in Greenville, North Carolina

Wimp the Pimp” as he was affectionately known, was educated in the Duplin County Public Schools system. He worked many odd jobs; concrete, lawn care, and could be called “Mr. Fix-It”, because of his gift to repair what seemed to be unrepairable to most.

Winfred enjoyed dancing and spending quality time with his family. He was always the life of the party and always willing to help anyone. So, from the words of “Wimp the Pimp” ... “PEACE OUT!”

Winfred is also preceded in death by one brother: Norman H. Kenan.

He leaves to cherish his precious memories: Parents: Lenora Bryant Kenan and Edgar Kenan, of Wallace, NC. Three Brothers: Lawrence Kenan (Brenda) of Wallace, NC, Antonio Kenan of Wallace, NC, Edgar Boney of Fayetteville, NC.  Four Sisters: Elizabeth Kenan of Wallace, NC, Donnie Kenan of Rose Hill, NC, Carolyn Farrior of Teachey, NC, Sonja Herring of Rose Hill, NC. One Special Brother: Anthania James “Stonio” of Teachey, NC. Two Best Friends: James Mathis of Wallace, NC and Preston Brinson of Rose Hill, NC. Three Special Cousins: Roger Bryant of Faison, NC, Daron Bryant of Rose Hill, NC, Levi Williams of Texas. Girlfriend: Bridgette Jones, and a host of aunts and uncles, 26 nieces, 24 nephews, other relatives and many friends that loved him dearly.
