Kenneth David Tanner, age 40, of Poteet, passed away Tuesday, July 31, 2018 in San Antonio.

He was born Wednesday, January 25, 1978 in San Antonio to Glenn Charles and Evelyn (Perez) Tanner Sr.

Kenneth was a great man with a huge heart. He was always willing to give a helping hand to anyone. He was a hard working man who made a good name for himself in the oilfield industry. Aside from being a hard working man he was a family man. He loved throwing the football around with his 3 boys, late night swims, and simply just laying around the house watching tv. He loved taking spur of the moment trips to the beach with his family or trips to casinos with his wife. He loved to barbecue on his pellet grill and was always experimenting with new things to cook. He was definitely living his best life. He was a “Go big or go home” type of guy. As his brother Joey has said, “We will go BIG because he is already home.”

Kenneth is survived by his wife, Mary Alice Tanner; son, Zachary Tanner; daughter; Kendall Tanner; step-sons, Gabriel Flores and Xavier Flores; brother, Joseph Tanner and wife Melisa A. Tanner. He is also survived by his nephews and nieces, Charles Tanner, Jacquelyn Tanner, Hunter Tanner, Holden Tanner, and Kennedy Tanner.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Glenn and Evelyn Tanner Sr.
