Kenneth James Painter

August 21, 2016 - On Sunday, August 21, 2016, Kenneth James Painter, 65, the loving husband of Marcia Martin Painter ended his crippling fight with PSP (Progressive Supranuclear Palsy) and today he is in Heaven with Jesus. Amen!

Kenneth was born March 10, 1951. The third of five children to Ruby Waddell Painter and the late Adam Sam "Bill" Painter, Sr. Kenneth was many things in his lifetime; a 1969 graduate of Greer High School, he was a son, a brother, a friend, a Christian, a member of People's Baptist Church, a business man and partner, an entrepreneur, a husband, a father, a grandfather and a self-employed farmer for 42 years.

Kenneth fondly remembered an old salesman that would stop by the office rather persistently to make a sale. The salesman would sit down and start filling out his forms and ask Kenneth "now what is your job title?" Kenneth always answered, "Farmer". He thought the salesman would always get a little perturbed wanting to hear CFO, Vice President or some other fancy title, but Kenneth was a farmer. Yes, he row cropped, raised peaches, sold vegetables and had cattle, but he was more.

Just as he planted a crop so he would plant seeds in people. Seeds of faith, strength, courage, humility, love, peace, kindness, faithfulness, forgiveness and gentleness to name a few. Kenneth received joy in watching his crops grow in the field and in the people of his life. He nurtured and cared for them all and gave his life to provide for them.

Kenneth was joyfully able to harvest the crops in the field but the harvest of his life is still producing. For one day, generations from now, Kenneth Painter might not be remembered but the seeds he planted in his family and friends will reap a harvest for eternity and posterity will benefit from his life.
