There is no visitation scheduled.
Mr. Bolden passed away Wednesday, October 9, 2019 in Cleburne, Texas. He was born in Bell County, Texas on June 21, 1938, the son of Lillie (Sisson) and J.D. Bolden.
Kenneth (Fat boy) sure was something. He will be remembered for this strength, patience, and his passion for life. His passion for life led him in many directions. He enjoyed fishing, golf, bowling, racing cars, roller derby, and on occasion, spinning out the tires on his wheel chair.
Kenneth worked as a heavy equipment operator for Southwest where he made many life-long friends. He was very proud of becoming an honorary deacon at Cornerstone Church, where he made many friends and shared his love for Jesus Christ and vigor for life.
He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, uncle, cousin, and friend to so many who are grieving his passing. Although his body has left this earth, rejoice knowing that he is without pain running in streets of gold.
Mr. Bolden was preceded in death by his son, Bubba Bolden and step-daughter, Karla Freedman.
He is survived by his beloved wife, Leta Bolden; children, Kenny Bolden and wife, Suzette, Neal Freedman, Blake Freedman, Karen Gossett and husband, Arm, Kristi Hughes and husband, Jeff, and Ronda Millington and husband, Tim; grandchildren, Jeremy Bolden, Candace Kato, Ashley Crawford, Paige Gossett, Landon Gossett, Kulten Hughes, Faith Hughes, and Jackson Hughes; great grandchildren, Annaleigh Kato and Mady Crawford; sister, Carolyn Ann Cason; nephew, Rickey Reid and wife, Teresa; and niece, Peggy Gailey and husband, Larry.
