Kenneth Duane, son of Paul and Helen (Baumhover) Boell, was born February 3, 1943, at St. Anthony Hospital in Carroll. He grew up near Manilla, attending country school at Hayes Township #8 and graduating from Manning High School in 1961. Kenny then farmed with his family.

From 1964 to 1970, Kenny served with the Iowa National Guard as an Ammunition Specialist, with schooling at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri and Fort Carson, Colorado.

On February 9, 1968, Kenny was united in marriage with Cherryl Anderson at Zion Lutheran Church in Arcadia. Six children were born to this marriage. The couple farmed the family farm near Manilla and Kenny worked on other farms in the area and in construction. He retired from Crawford County after 24 years of service.

Kenny was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Manilla and American Legion Post 22 in Manning where he was active with the Ceremonial Team and as Past-commander. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, trapping, traveling and American history.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 50 years, Cherryl, in 2018; parents Paul and Helen Boell; brothers Robert Boell and Louis Boell; and his father-in-law Albert Anderson.
