KENNY, Kenneth Samuel

Kenneth Samuel Kenny of Sarnia, ON (Born Val-d'Or, QC)

Oct. 13, 1941 – Mar. 26, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ken Kenny at the age of 82. Peacefully, surrounded by loving family at Bluewater Health Sarnia, on Tuesday, March 26, 2024, Ken’s courageous battle with cancer ended.

Ken was a very proud father to Tracey Dionne (Wayne) of Sarnia and Kevin Kenny (Mercedes Weber) of Oshawa. He was a loving grandfather to Alex Dionne and Oliver Kenny. Ken is survived by his wife Debra Kenny (Vanhuizen).

Ken's true passions were with his family and his love for fishing. He adored his grandchildren, finding much joy in their presence and sharing his wisdom and stories with each moment. Ken's days were often spent by the water's edge, accompanied by his loyal dog Tess, as he fished and explored on his scooter, proudly displaying his Canadian flags. His love for fishing and his furry little companion brought him solace and happiness.

Ken was a retired Pipefitter from UA Local 527, with along-standing membership of 48 years. His commitment to his profession and colleagues left a lasting impact on all those with whom he worked.

In his retirement, Ken delved into a world of creativity and craftsmanship. He enjoyed the intricate art of woodworking, where his skilled hands brought timber to life, shaping it into beautiful creations. Ken's passion for carving was a form of meditation, where each stroke of his tools began to reveal the beauty hidden within the wood.

Ken is survived by his Sisters Carroll Bannon (Carmen) of St. Thomas; Frances Rayner (Late Bruce) of Belize; Jaqueline Belliveau (Gary)of Port Sydney; Murielle Kenny (Randy Corsaut) of London; Brother Maurice Kenny (Lani Ashenhurst) of Ingersoll; and Son Danny Labelle (Manon) of Très-Saint-Rédempteur, QC.

Predeceased by his Parents, Marie Anne (Annie) Carroll, and Joseph Alain Kenny of Sainte-Rose-Gloucester, NB.


In lieu of flowers, donations to Society of Saint Vincent de Paul Sarnia-Lambton, or to your local Humane Society in Ken's honor are appreciated.

A private celebration of his life to honor his memory will be scheduled for a later time.


Rest peacefully, Ken. Your loving presence will be deeplymissed, but your spirit never forgotten.
