Devoted father, beloved son, brother, uncle, nephew; Kenn Kaye, 46, of Ann Arbor, Michigan passed away peacefully on October 29, 2018 with his family by his side.  A friend to all, Kenn’s kind smile and gentle demeanor endeared him to everyone he met. Kenn is survived by his son Gunnar Michael Kaye (10) of Allen Park, Michigan; parents Dennis and Dorothy (Jaworski) Kaye of Ann Arbor, Michigan; sister Bethany (John) Burnett of San Francisco, California; niece Gabrielle Chen of Oakland, California; and uncle Ron Jaworski of Wyandotte, Michigan.

Always creative, Kenn excelled at art from an early age, and was fond of drawing cars and trucks from the time he could hold a crayon.  He discovered the drums in High School, and over time learned that was able to pick up almost any instrument and figure out how to play it.  Kenn spent many years in bands playing bars and gigs around Michigan and in Canada.  Later, he took up photography and recognized that he had a talent for that as well, and spent several years as a professional photographer.  But above all, Kenn’s greatest joy in life was his son Gunnar. 

Kenn’s life will be celebrated on Friday, November 23, 2018 at the Robison-Bahnmiller funeral home in Saline, Michigan. Visitation will start at 3:30 p.m., with a memorial service at 5:00 p.m. Food and fellowship to follow.

The family has established a trust fund for Gunnar’s care and education; and the family requests that any donations be made out to Bethany Burnett f/b/o Gunnar Kaye. Envelopes will be provided by the funeral home. To sign Kenn’s guestbook, to leave a memory, or for more information or directions please visit
