Isaac Kennedy Jackson, 51, son of the late Isaac Colclough and Geneva Singleton Jackson, was born August 31, 1961, in Sumter County. Kenny”, as he was affectionately called, departed this life to be with our Father in Heaven on July 15, 2013 at Tuomey Health Care System, Sumter.
He was a member of Ebenezer Presbyterian Church (USA) and a graduate of Hillcrest High School Class of 1981. Kenny also attended Truck Driving School in Kennesaw, GA and Sumter Area Technical College. Later he was employed with the City of Sumter for five years. He lived most of his life in Sumter except for a brief time in Black River Falls, Wisconsin.
After his health failed he returned to his home from being a truck driver with Millis Transport, Black River Falls, Wisconsin for the past 17 years. He was also owner and operator of Kenny Jackson’s Towing Service for a brief period of time here in Sumter.
Kenny was a kind and gentle person of good spirit, had a great sense of humor and always willing to help and lend a helping hand to anyone he could. His favorite saying was “It is what it is”. He loved music and his hobby was repairing cars, trucks and motor cycles.
