Kaylen was entering his senior year at Cass Tech.  He was in the band and passionate about Fellowship Chapel, pa stored by Reverend Wendell Anthony, who was getting ready to make Kaylen a worship leader at the church

Keenon was a devoted family man, faithful father to his 4-year-old son and a mentor to many men in the community.
