Kenneth Ray Tonn crossed over to join the heavenly orchestra on January 21 2021 in Tempe Arizona succumbing to the effects of Covid-19. Kenn was born January 8 1958 in Anchorage Alaska to Raymond O. and Mary E. Tonn. He grew up in Anchorage and as soon as he was out of high school began a career in music, the bass guitar being his primary method of artistic expression. He went on to record and play in numerous bands over the next 45 years in Alaska, up and down the west coast and the U.S. Kenn was at home in front of a crowd be it 10 people or 10,000. He knew who he was and lived an authentic life pursuing his passion to the end. Left behind to cherish his memory are son Dustin (wife Sara, grandson Ezekiel, granddaughter Abigail) son Zachariah (wife LaDocia, granddaughter Thia) sister and brother in law Christi and Mark Norquist, dearest friends Andre and Deb Pontbriand, Curt and Sharon Nelson, Eric Traub and a multitude of musical family and friends. Memorial services are currently pending due to the ongoing pandemic. Richardson Funeral Home, Tempe, Arizona is compassionately serving the Tonn family.
