Kenneth Kollmeyer
A memorial service was held Friday at Allen Mortuary in Turlock for Kenneth Carl Kollmeyer, 62, of Ceres. He died Sunday, May 2, 2010, in Turlock following a short illness.

Born March 9, 1948 in Salinas, Kenny was a lifelong resident of Ceres, residing on the farm established and revered by his parents, the late Bernard Henry Kollmeyer and Marie Kollmeyer. Kenny loved Giants baseball and had a steel-trap mind for reciting wins and losses, batting averages and RBIs. Mr. Kollmeyer enjoyed bowling was another passion, and playing the slot machines in Reno two or three times a year.

He leaves behind his mother, Marie Kollmeyer of Concordia, Kansas; five brothers, Joe Kollmeyer of Waterford, Bruce Kollmeyer of Tracy, Kevin Kollmeyer of Turlock, Charlie Kollmeyer of Seattle, Wash., and Mark Kollmeyer of Modesto; four sisters, Jean Boicelli of Turlock, Lucia Cretti of Montrose, Colo., Mary Jane Jennings of Visalia and Cathy Petersen of Fremont.

Remembrances may be sent to Miller's Place, Doctors Medical Foundation, 730 McHenry Avenue, Modesto, CA 95350.
