Don Kenney, died March 28, 2021. Left with a broken heart, his loving wife, Joan Bessey.
Don always said the best way to die is in your sleep. And always true to his way, he did.
Youngest son of the late Jack Kenney and the late Mary (Murphy) Kenney of Conche, NL.
Loving brother to Imelda, Mary, Beatrice, Ray, and Agnes.
Brother-in-law to his sibling’s spouses: Rod, Brian, Elizabeth, Margaret and Frances.
Uncle Don to a Kenney brood of nieces and nephews who will remember his humor, wisdom and love: Jason, Tracy, Greg, Colette, Ramona, John, Rhoda, Gaylord, Caroline, Rhonda, Darren, David, Desmond, André, Annette, Joel, Josh and Janine.
Finest brother-in-law to the Bessey family: Catherine (Ed), Carl (Dianne), Eldon (Susan), Marcie, Keith (Pearl), Woody (Jackie), Noel (Ruth), Edna, Muriel, and Melvin (Ruby).
Uncle Don to Bessey family nieces and nephews in St. John’s: Peter, Terri, Nathan, Jaimee, Danielle, Eliot, Tanya and Marie and to many more living other places.
A loyal friend to Gord, Ed, Jack, Bob, Furlong, Veva, French, Heff, Bill and Glenn plus many more, too many to name but you know who you are.
Whip-smart, a musician, a runner, a swimmer, an avid reader, writer and a world traveler. Don delighted in his first sky-dive and enjoyed his working years, first in the Royal Canadian Air Force and later with Transport Canada.
To the medical professionals whom Don trusted for his care, thank you.
Gone before him: his loving parents, his cherished brothers, Bill and Brendan, much-loved sister, Dorothy, special niece, Sandra and wonderful brother-in-law, Marc.
