Feb. 27, 1956-Nov. 10, 2013


Kenneth E. Bockey, 57, of Delphos, walked into Jesus’ arms at approximately 8:05 a.m. Sunday at the Sarah Jane Living Center in Delphos being held by his loving family.

He was born Feb. 27, 1956, at St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima to Walter E. and Anna Jean (Kroeger) Bockey. His mother survives in Delphos.

Survivors also include brothers, Joe (Doris), Dennis, Vernon (Lisa) and John Bockey of Delphos; his forever grateful sisters, Joan (George) Hurrell of Port Clinton, Connie (Fred) Nahrwold of New Haven, Ind., Monica (Richard) Maye of Elida, Jackie (Rick) Cavelage of Middle Point and Diana (Steve) Rennie of Las Vegas; and a sister-in-law, Pamela Bockey-Smith of Van Wert. He is also survived by 14 nieces and nephews and three great nieces.

He is welcomed into Heaven by his father, Walter E. Bockey; and a brother, Tom Bockey.

Kenny loved everything to do with family get-togethers. He thoroughly enjoyed his work and everyone he worked with at the Thomas Edison Workshop in Van Wert. He was an enthusiastic St. John’s Blue Jays, Michigan Wolverines, Cincinnati Reds and Dallas Cowboys fan. Without as much as a kindergarten diploma, Kenny taught his brothers and sisters more about the real meaning of life, including innocence, compassion, patience and unconditional love than anyone.

Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:30 a.m. today at St. John The Evangelist Church in Delphos, the Rev. David Reinhart officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

Preferred memorials are to the Thomas Edison Workshop in Van Wert and the Sarah Jane Living Center in Delphos
