Kenneth “K.C.” Dunham

K.C. was born on April 18, 1977 in Mill Valley, California. He always gave the best hugs and even though he couldn’t speak on earth, he is now made new and with his dad having conversations like he never could and talking with friends and loved ones who had gone on before us. He was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Those left to cherish his memory are his mother, Mary Ellen Like of Melbourne, Florida; his sister, Tammy Dallmier of Robinson, Illionois; his brother, Chris Like of Lawrenceville, Illionois; his nephew, Daniel Dallmier of Robinson; his step-mother, Brenda Dunham of New Orleans; and a host of extended family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, Daniel Dunham.

Private family memorial services will be held at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Mulhearn Funeral Home of Rayville.
