Kenneth “Kenny” Howard Hites, 64, passed away on April 10, 2018 at Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, WA. Born in Moscow, ID, he attended Moscow schools and graduated with MHS Class of ’71. Kenny worked at the University of Idaho Facilities Department for 30 years and retired in July, 2015.
He enjoyed camping, four-wheeling, spending time with awesome friends, golfing, watching how-to videos to perfect his swing, and binge-watching true crime shows like Forensic Files – a fav. He will be remembered as a low-key, fun-loving guy with a knack for one-liners that were sure to make everyone laugh.
He is survived by his best friend and life partner, Carol McAleer, children, Ginger Hites Miller, Jerame Hites, John Hites, step-children, Jonathan McAleer, Emma McAleer, and granddaughter, Marissa Priest as well as a brother, Harley Hites and nephew, Chris Hites.
A celebration of life will be held for family and friends beginning at 4:00 PM on Friday, April 13th at The Moscow Elks Lodge Club House at 3080 Hwy 8, Moscow. Come join us to say, “cheers” to Kenny and memorialize a life well lived.
The family suggests memorials be made to the Moscow Baseball Association.
