Kenneth was born on September 5, 1928 to Harold T. Jardot and Ethel L. (Hunt) Jardot in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
He attended Eureka and Stillwater Public Schools. He married Phyllis I. Sharpton on May 7, 1951 at the First Christian Church in Stillwater.
Kenneth was a man of many talents. He was a master craftsman with his brick work. He could look at a project and come up with a plan, and most of the time he didn’t need to put anything down on paper. He built their home in 1951 where both he and his wife were at the time of their deaths. He also loved the outdoors and farming. He took great pride in caring for the cattle and the garden on his farm. His garden provided an abundance of produce that he shared with neighbors and friends. He would have a tomato challenge with his buddies and it was always agreed that he was the winner.
Kenneth was an avid story teller. If you have never heard one of his big tales then you have missed out! Maybe not all of his stories were completely true; however, he made you want to believe them and they certainly made you laugh. Kenneth poured his love into his brick work, his garden, and his stories but most of all, his family.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Ethel Jardot; wife Phyllis and brother, Willis R. Jardot.
He is survived by daughters, Sandra Schrock and husband, Robert, Cynthia Filson and husband Michael, and son Thomas Jardot. He is also survived by his sisters, Virginia Burger, Helen Shipley Marian Herrin, Carol Hiner, Linda Lawson and Cheri Cummings.
