Kenneth Lynn "Kenny" "Cebeda" Armstrong


KENNETH LYNN “KENNY” “CEBEDA” ARMSTRONG, age 67, passed away Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at his home.

Kenny was always a hard worker. His dad passed when he was only 9, so he started young, helping his mom. Kenny would do anything to help. He loved to entertain and cook for family and friends. He was the life or clown of the party, always making people laugh – but his opinionated side could make you mad as quick as he could make you smile. No matter the side of Kenny you knew, all of him will be missed by his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his father, James Lee Armstrong; mother, Jean Armstrong Russell; step-father, Paul “Fuzz” Russell; sisters, Carolyn Smith, Wanda Ellis, and Rita “Legs” Smith.

Kenny is survived by his daughter, Heather Combs and husband, Eric of Lincolnton, N.C.; son, Daniel Armstrong of Abingdon, Va.; sisters, Julie Shortt and husband, Lewis of Chilhowie, Va. and Cindy Armstrong of Marion, Va.; grandchildren, Sarah Greer and Matthew Combs; several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great nephews; and many friends including special friends, Diz, Pam and Marty, Rhonda and Keevise, Drew and Terry, Tripp, Bootsie, Amanda and Josh, and Rusty.

A private family get-together to celebrate Kenny’s life will be held at a later date.

So sorry to learn of Kenny's passing. We were first cousins but have not run into each other due to living in different state. Rest in peace. Gary Armstrong

I just saw this and my husband and I are so sorry to hear about Kenny's passing. We met Kenny at the Wellness Center and talked to him often. He was such a sweet person, so kind. We will miss seeing him around. My husband and I just said today that we haven't seen Kenny around in the last few days. He worked out all the time and love to go swimming, we often would be in the pool at the same time. RIP dear friend

Kenny took me on my first road bike ride. It was scary at first. He pulled over and explained how to lean with the curves. It was awesome after that. Sorry to hear of his passing.

I have so many memories of sweet Kenny but his smile will forever be my most treasured memory. This shocking, heart breaking news has shattered us all. My deepest sympathy and love go out to Kenny's family and friends. Kenny and I shared many moments together. We shared fresh eggs, peaches, and homemade drinks. I will miss you Kenny!
