Kenneth Wayne Vaughan

January 19, 1951 ~ September 3, 2020 (age 69)


Kenneth Wayne Vaughan, age 69, played his last mandolin tune and took his final bow on Thursday, September 3, 2020.

Kenneth was born January 19, 1951, in Clarksville, TN, to Dorothy Morrison McCoy and the late Gerald Hogan Vaughan.

A self-taught musician, he performed for adoring crowds in kitchens and back porches across the region, his favorite venues. He was a lover of history, a collector of knowledge, and a whiz at Jeopardy, but not as good as his brother. He loved his family, his wife and daughters, and according to the experts, was the best pawpaw in the world. He loved to gather friends & family around him and he could throw a great party. He orchestrated a million smiles and hours of laughter.   

Visitation will be held Thursday, September 10, from 2:00 to 4:00 PM, at Neal-Tarpley-Parchman Funeral Home.

Kenneth is survived by his devoted wife of 48 years, Susan; his cherished daughters, Kerry & Amber; his siblings and friends, Mike and Lisa; his heartbroken mother, Dottie; and the stars in his sky, his granddaughters, Avan and Abery.  

Arrangements are entrusted to Neal-Tarpley-Parchman Funeral Home, 1510 Madison Street, Clarksville, TN 37040; (931) 645-6488. Online condolences may be made at
