Kenneth Pierre Haumont, passed away March 25, 2011, 4 months after his father Pierre Henry Haumont passed. Kenneth grew up in South Phoenix and was the first graduating class of South Mountain High School.
He worked hard and played hard and lived life to the fullest. He worked in construction as a heavy equipment operator, project manager of roadways, bridges, and as an estimator for the last 15 years.
He Loved the out-of-doors. In his early years he hunted deer with his folks, later quail and dove with a dog named Max, his companion during those times. He loved playing sports such as all church basketball, softball and golf, but tennis was his real love and played until a month before his death. In the 70’s he and his father played in the Australian Tennis Open, also during the 70’s he owned Whitelocks Sporting Goods in North/East Phoenix.
He owned a restaurant in Pinetop, AZ with his wife Wanda.
We loved him for his generosity in helping his children and giving extravagant gifts, he liked people and was a loyal friend, but his sense of fun came from his mother the late Vernece Love Haumont.
He was a life long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) and was a faithful home teacher; his families loved his well thought out messages.
He is survived by three children, Sterling Pierre Haumont, Kendra Keever and Michelle Moyer, five grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, his wife of 35 years Wanda Mae Haumont and her two daughters Toni Diane Stewart and Debbie Shadle, two sisters Beverly (Max) Balthrop, Renee (Bill) Woods and many nieces and nephews who will miss him.
