Obituary

It is with great sadness but also extreme joy that we announce the graduation of Donald William Kenny to his eternal home on Palm Sunday, March 28, 2021 in his 90th year. He did his undergrad degree in Faith, Family and Friends with a minor in all things Irish.

Don will be missed by those who treasured him the most, especially his deeply loved wife of 29 years, Dorothy Carroll. He was a world-class teacher to his four children, Angela Brooks (Ryan) of Peterborough, Karen Terrell (Dave) of USA, Kevin Kenny - pre-deceased 2010 (Jackie) of Markham and Mary-Theresa Hiltz (Randy) of Chatham. Don was always an excellent tutor to his 15 grand-children and his two stepdaughters Helen Brennan and Kathleen O’Reilly.

Don was escorted from his earthly home in Lindsay, Ontario to his new heavenly classroom by his first wife Madeline Kenny (deceased 1987) and his son Kevin. Don was the youngest in his family class of 14 children, 12 of whom met him at the pearly gates of God’s playground, while Don’s sister, Marilyn Medcalf, continues her earthly studies.

Don literally received his Masters Degree in Education, teaching in London, On (Phys. Ed., Special Ed and Guidance) for 31 years. Don received an A+ in his lifelong passion for sports, as an Athlete (boxing, football, baseball), coach, armchair quarterback extraordinaire and captain of “Team DK”. Don’s Masterclass however, was his life long study of faith where he taught best by example.

In his textbook of love, a chapter is dedicated to Don’s many care workers, especially Sandra Ree and Dr. Petrasoniak. Due to current restrictions, there will be a private family funeral mass and interment with a summer Celebration of Life.

In Don‘s new home-room, he will now have perfect attendance at every Inverhuron sunset, he will sit centre ice at every Habs game, and will oversee every Kenny Reunion with a Guinness in hand.

A private family Mass of Christian Burial will take place on Tuesday, April 6th at 10:00 a.m.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to the Development and Peace Canadian Charity. (www.devp.org).
Please go to www.stoddartfuneralhome.com. to share your memories and stories of this great educator.

As his final lesson, may we remember his favourite prayer... “May the good Lord hold you in the palm of His hand.”

We were very fortunate to have Dorothy and Don attend our wedding. I only met him a few times but thought highly of him. My condolences to all, especially his wife, my favourite guidance teacher, Dorothy.

Don was a great inspiration to all and a stand-up patriarch to family and extended family. It was always a joy to get together. You will be missed Don. Rest in peace.

I have so many fond memories that it is hard to pick one.Since I lived next door to him for the first four years of life you can use your imagination how often Uncle Donald practiced his parenting skills and spoilt my brother and I.May he enjoy himself and watch over us in his new home.
