Kenneth "Kenny" Brittain Stuart, 67, of Morton, MS, died on February 3, 2020.
Kenny was born on February 27, 1952 to Mr. John Brittain and Mrs. Nellie Bea Stuart. Kenny lived and worked most of his life in Scott and Rankin counties in Mississippi and spent more than twenty years as a Law Enforcement Officer but also fondly remembered his time as a rigger for McDermott International in Morgan City, Louisiana.
Kenny was an avid reader, especially of Science Fiction and Fantasy. If the phrases “Hugo Award Winning” or “Nebula Award Winning” were on the cover of a book in the 1980s and 1990s, Kenny had likely read it. He loved and annotated many of his books. He was particularly fond of the Wheel of Time fantasy series and the works of Piers Anthony and Robert Heinlein.
Kenny loved the art of Walter Ingliss Anderson, expressed an unfailing love for all things related to the Gulf Coast, reefs, fishes, and oceans at large. He was fond of stories highlighting Man’s struggle against the ocean and dangerous, sea-faring expeditions. He would have liked nothing more than to have been part of the Kon-Tiki expedition.
Kenny loved riding motorcycles, especially on the Natchez Trace. He loved photography and finding interesting shots in places often overlooked or dismissed by others. He loved fishing: boat or bank or off-shore platforms, rod-and-reel or cane pole or drop hook. He had it in for Bream and Red Snapper, in particular. He pursued all these loves in and around Mississippi.
Kenny is preceded in death by his father John Brittain Stuart, mother Nellie Bea Stuart and one brother Jimmy Arthur Stuart.
Kenny is survived by his sons, Conan Stuart and Cliff Stuart, grandchildren, Jackson Stuart and Edie Stuart, and brothers, Dennis Stuart and Timmy Stuart.
