Kenneth was predeceased by his parents, Sidney J. and Elaine Brown Montegut, as well as his brother, Dennis J. Montegut. Kenneth is survived by two children, Christopher Montegut and Catherine Brehart; his brother Thomas; sisters Ann and Kay; nieces, nephews and many loving relatives and friends.

Kenneth was born in New Orleans on Nov. 16, 1958. He graduated from Riverside Academy and attended Southeastern Louisiana University. Kenneth had a strong interest in local history and enjoyed reading on the topic.

He also enjoyed outdoor activities, especially hunting and fishing, and was happiest engaged in these activities. He was a very sensitive man with a big heart that felt life deeply – both the good and the bad.

May he rest in peace free from the adversities and struggles he faced in this physical world.
