Text size

OKLAHOMA CITY – Kenneth “Kenny” Joel Comer, 29, of Oklahoma City passed away on Saturday, May 30, 2015. Kenny was born in Enid on Nov. 8, 1985, to Elizabeth Ann Thompson and John Herbert Comer. Growing up in Tahlequah, Kenny enjoyed riding motorcycles with his dad, playing outside with his sister, going to the rodeo, and beating his friends at any sport involving a ball. At Tahlequah High School, Kenny lettered in basketball and football. Kenny’s love of sports surpassed playing them and he lived to watch, officiate and coach them as well. Later in life, Kenny learned to play and excelled at golf. OKC Thunder basketball, Dallas Cowboys football, and OU sports were Kenny’s favorites to watch. Kenny was a proud member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. Kenny received his Masters of Education in Community Counseling from his beloved University of Oklahoma. He was a Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate at Catholic Charities where he was passionate about making a positive difference to his patients. Kenny volunteered and was the coordinator of Helpline Services from September 2012-2014 with OAPCG. He was a member of the American Counseling Association and he served as the Masters Vice President Chair for Counseling Student Association from 2012-2013. The two proudest and most cherished moments in Kenny’s life were walking down the aisle with his beautiful Danielle as husband and wife and when his daughter, Kenlee, was born. Kenny loved spending every second of time with Danielle; including cooking, watching “Nashville,” vacationing to Mexico and Eureka Springs, doing crossword puzzles in bed, date nights and playing fetch and cuddling with their dog, Tank. Reading books, doing crafts, watching movies, field trips to the park and the zoo were some of his favorite things to do with his daughter, Kenlee. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Kenneth Lee Comer, Sarah Cecilia Comer, and Charles R. Keithline, Jr. He is survived by his wife, Danielle Nicole Comer; daughter, Kenlee Vann Comer; sister, Camille Comer Westbrook; brother, Tyler James Smith. He is also survived by his mother, Elizabeth Ann Thompson; and father, John Herbert Comer. Kenny’s big heart, infectious smile and motto to “Fight Like Hell” will be his legacy and live on in his family and friends. Funeral services will be at 2 p.m., Wednesday, June 3, at Chapel Hill Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Kenny’s honor to Catholic Charities of Oklahoma City at 1501 N. Classen Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73106.
