Kenneth “Kenny” Louis Truxillo passed away on Friday, February 7, 2020 at the age of 55. He was a native of New Orleans and a resident of Harahan. Parents, Felix Truxillo Jr. and Anna Lee Delaune Truxillo and his older brother Melvin J. Truxillo precede Kenny in death. Kenny leaves behind an adoring family including his sister Linda T. Galiano (Richie-Deceased), Daniel J Truxillo “Dan” (Barbara), and Michael A. Truxillo “Mike” (Dayna) and his loving nieces & nephews- Brandee, Hollie, Renee’, Lindsay, Chad, Brittany, Melanie, Mychal Lynn and Blake.
Kenny loved people, he loved his dogs, he loved New Orleans and he loved the Saints- Kenny was a true Who Dat! Kenny will be remembered for his generous heart, quick-witted comebacks, and for always being the life of the party. Wherever Kenny was, fun was sure to follow. His love of people and passion for welcoming them to his city made him well loved by colleagues and clients alike. While working for the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, Kenny traveled the world showing others what the true meaning of hospitality is. Once you met Kenny, he left an impression that you were no longer a colleague or a client you were now a friend and some cases, family. Kenny will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Visitation will be from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm followed by a Funeral Mass at 12:00 pm. Internment at Jefferson Memorial Gardens.
