Kenny McClendon
Kenneth Eugene “Papou” McClendon, 72, husband of Pamela Sterghos McClendon, died Thursday, February 10, 2022 at Self Regional Medical Center with his family by his side.

Born in Greenwood, he was the son of the late Woodrow P. and Nellie Blackwell McClendon. Kenny was a Greenwood High School graduate and has remained in and around the Greenwood area throughout his life. He spent 33 years before retirement working for Gleamns Human Resource Commission INC impacting Greenwood and surrounding counties. He was a US Army veteran, serving during the Vietnam era and was of the Baptist faith.

Kenny enjoyed life on the lake, working on his farm, riding horses, sitting on the beach, his Ninety Six Tuesday Night Men’s Supper Club, Team Shack Hunt Club, and he was a huge supporter of high school and recreational athletics. Kenny’s greatest passion was his family. He never missed a sporting event that one of his children or grandchildren were involved in. He opened his home to his children’s friends, whom he welcomed as family and for many was a second father. He was always looking to extend a helping hand and brought laughter to so many throughout his lifetime.
