We are very sad to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Pat Kenny on June 27, 2020 at the age of 73 years, surrounded by the
love of his family.
Pat is lovingly remembered by his wife, Kay; daughter, Bonnie (Dean) Borys of Blackfalds; son, Jason (Denelle) Kenny ofPeaceRiver;son,Ross(Deb)Gardner
of Irvine, California; daughter, Raina Gardner (Tim Reilly) of Winlaw, BC; daughter, Laurel (Jarrett) McAuley of Red Deer; grandchildren, Courtney, Nicholas, Christian, Brandon, Olivia, Dexter, Oscar, Roghan, and Dalah. He is also survived by his brother, Ernie Jr. Kenny of Indian Orchard, Massachusetts; sister, Terry (Bill) Tudge of St. Albert; twin sister, Barbara Duggan of Ottawa; sister, Moyern O’Connor of Ottawa; brother-in-law (bro), Don (Debbie) Bergman of Kelowna; sister-in-law, Linda (Alcide) Cloutier of Vulcan; sister-in-law, Jackie (Bob) Mitchell of Edson; and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, their children, and many beloved friends and their families. He was predeceased by his parents, Ernie and Bernadette Kenny; his parents-in-law, George and Helen Bergman; brother-in-law, Frank Ambrogiano and sister-in- law, Ruth Kenny.
Pat was born in Hull, Quebec but grew up in Ottawa; he moved to Alberta in 1980 for work and to raise his family. Soon after he met the love of his life Kay, and in 1985 they married and blended their two families. His love for nature led to many family camping trips with close friends, the Jordet family. The wide-open skies of the prairies enticed him to skydive with his best friend NJ.
Pat was a devoted husband for 35 years and a dedicated father, always making sure his family had what they needed. He instilled his care for animals and the environment in his children. With a thirst for knowledge, his hobbies included listening to audiobooks and radio broadcasts from around the world. Always the life of the party, he was a prankster who loved to laugh and be with his friends and family. His wisdom, his smiling eyes, and his laughter will be dearly missed.
Cremation and a private celebration of life will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Red Deer Public Library or the Medicine River Wildlife Centre. Messages of condolence may be left for the family at www.myalternatives.ca. Obituary
