Kenneth O'Neal became the fourth of six children on March 18th. He was raised in Chicago's inner city and was taken to church at an early age. He particularly enjoyed Baptist preaching (for many reasons) and was baptized at the age of 13. He later attended Dunbar Vocational high school, where he played on the basketball team, before earning acceptance to the University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign. His grandmother told him "If a man knows where he is going, God will let him go by." That statement helped drive him to achieve his childhood dream of becoming a physician. He completed the medical program at University of Illinois in 1992, that same year he began the residency program at Cook County Hospital and met his gorgeous wife, Lorrie Richardson.
