A Columbia man who was killed in a farm accident Sunday appears to have included Kanakuk Kamps in his will, according to on-line Taney County probate documents.
While attention has centered recently on former camp director Pete Newman, who is charged with four felony sex crime involving underage boys, Kanakuk's reputation, for the most part, has been connected with people like the late Kenny Rall, who was described this way in an obituary in the Columbia Tribune:
Kenny was a graduate of Hickman High School and the University of Missouri. He received the rank of Eagle Scout, was the president of the local FFA chapter during high school and was a member of the Farm House fraternity at the University of Missouri. He was very involved with Kanakuk Kamps and their K-Life ministry in the Columbia area and was an active member of Woodcrest Chapel. Kenny was an independent businessman.
Kenny valued his family and friends. He was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand, and he never knew a stranger. Everyone was his friend.
He is survived by his father, Kenneth Rall Sr.; a son, Jason Rall; two daughters, Kristen and Katelyn Rall; a sister, Susan Lenz; a brother, Kurt Rall; his wife, Kathy Rall, and children George-Austin Terlep and Anna Terlep; and his stepmother, Betsy Baker Rall.
Beneficiaries of Mr. Rall's will included his family members, according to the court documents.
The family asked that memorial donations be made to Kanakuk.
