Kenny McKinley’s funeral took place on 9.27.2010 and he was remembered well. Many doubted the suicide scenario. Representatives of the Denver Broncos came to Austell, Geogia for the Funeral.
AUSTELL, Ga. – Denver Broncos wide receiver Kenny McKinley was remembered Monday as a model teammate with a body-shaking laugh that could provide much-needed breaks from locker room tension.
Family, teammates and coaches were among several hundred people who gathered at a suburban Atlanta church for the 23-year-old’s funeral.
McKinley died last week at his home near Broncos headquarters in Denver. Authorities believe he shot himself in the head because he was depressed after his second straight season-ending knee surgery.
Linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who’s also from Georgia, was among several Broncos teammates who flew back for the service. He said McKinley came into the locker room and “taught 61 men how to laugh every day.”
