Kenny Douglas Weeks, went home to the Lord on Friday, July 13th,2018.
Kenny was born in Madera,CA on December 7th, 1962, but spent his childhood between California and Oklahoma.
Always a hard worker, Kenny, played semipro football for the OK Thunderchiefs during their impressive run through the early 1980s, while working a full time day job as a roofer. Once Kenny started a family, they became his main focus and eventually brought them to Alaska, where he made it their home.
Kenny, coached both his sons in football, on numerous little league and peewee teams throughout Oklahoma and Alaska. Kenny followed his youngest son through his football career becoming an assistant coach at Monroe Catholic High school. He then retired from high school football, so he could coach two of his grandsons, Darius and Julius Morgan, in the Fairbanks Youth Football program. In his free time, Kenny played and coached softball, with his family, as well as serving as a board member for Golden Heart Softball Association. As a player-coach his teams achieved great success. His coed team “Hot Shots” won the city and state title in 2015. A very charismatic figure he always played hard, never gave up, and was very well known for his pep talks. Kenny could get anybody fired up, he was the type of guy that never quit.
He will be missed by many, especially his furry best friend, Samson.
Kenny is survived by his wife of almost 40 years, Sophia Weeks, his parents, Joyce and Elton “Moe” Mosley, his siblings, Danny Francher, Yvette Weeks, Lisa Williams, Brian Mosley, their spouses, and children.
