Obituary for Kennith Harold Baggs
On Tuesday, September 11, 2018, Kennith Baggs Sr., loving husband and father of five, passed away at age 75. Kennith was born on July 8, 1943 in Many, LA to William T and Jocie Behan Baggs. He graduated from Hornbeck High School in 1962 and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Physical Education from Louisiana College in 1980. Kennith accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior, and later began his ministry journey that spanned over five decades. He served as minister at Plainview, Galilee, Harmony Cove, and Pleasant View Baptist Churches. On January 3, 1964, he married Sandra Lynn Crosby and their never-ending love story began. The unconditional love demonstrated through their 54 years together took them on a life journey of God’s ministry. Their love for each other served as a prototype to their children and all that knew them. Kennith was unceasingly supportive of his children Ken Jr., Kim, Zondra, Dena, and Kelvin. While having to share their father with extended family, “Daddy” was always available for wisdom, prayer, advice, love, support, and friendship. He was their confidant; their counselor; their cheerleader; and their pastor. They felt blessed to be his children. Kennith loved his grandchildren and was a constant fixture in their life. Deedee, Terry, Eric, Cicily, Christy, Haley, Laken, Kaslyn, Cade, Kaitlynn, Kylee, Cody, Kamryn, Leighton, Colton, and Zoe all had a special place in PawPaw’s heart. From pastoring them, to marrying them, he was involved in their lives offering words of encouragement and adoration. As a great grandfather, he welcomed his next generation Tyler, Cole, Teryn, and Cambree with wonderment. As a child of the King, Brother Kennith was a prayer warrior and a faithful servant. He simply loved the Lord and lived by the Romans 8:28 principle, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.” He is survived by his loving wife, mother-in-law, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and siblings. A visitation for the family and friends of Mr. Baggs will be held from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 13, 2018, at Pleasant View Baptist Church. Funeral services will be at 3:00 p.m. on Friday, September 14th at the church with Reverends Morris Goins, Jerry Penfield, and John Lewing officiating. Burial will follow in the Prewitt’s Chapel Cemetery under the direction of Jeane’s Funeral Service.
