Obituary for Kenneth D. Smallwood

Kenneth Dewayne Smallwood, 71, passed away at home August 16, 2020, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He was son to the late Samuel and Ruby Smallwood from Muncie, Indiana. Ken graduated from Yorktown High School in 1967 and Ball State University alumni. Though his profession as a CPA allowed him to meet and serve others, his life work was being a husband, a father, and a devout Christian, walking with his Lord and Savior in both life and death. A musical aficionado, Ken was a talented guitarist, singer, and songwriter. He enjoyed traveling far and wide, classic cars, and was a life-long learner that genuinely had interest in the experiences of others. Ken is survived by his wife, Susan Barnhart; his five children—Dewayne Stephens; Rhonda (Adam Fayssoux) both of Asheville, North Carolina; Chad (Amy) Shearer and Kristy Dittmer of Columbia City; and son, Justin (Jennifer) Smallwood of Fort Wayne. He will also be missed by his nine grandchildren Jacob, Brooklyn, Olivia, Peyton, Jackson, Jaylen, Alden, Abel, and Charles. A private graveside service on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 followed by visitation 4-6pm and a service at 6pm at FairHaven Funeral Home and Cremation. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to
