David Joseph Kenny, of Miramichi, is known to have passed away on April 21st, 2021, at the age of 48.
Born in Toronto but raise in Chatham Head, Miramichi, he was the son of Emma Murphy and William Kenny. He worked as a carpenter with various construction companies amongst Miramichi and out of province, but most will remember him from his many years with Baisley’s Construction in Miramichi. In his final years David continued to practice carpentry and Mechanics on his own time, mainly to help others who needed it most. Everyone will tell you, he had a million dollar hands; he was that talented.
David will always be remembered for his enormous heart. The expression “he would give you everything and the shirt off his back” stands true and strong with him. He was loved by many and admired by all. We hope when you think of David, you will remember his beautiful smile and contagious laugh.
He will be greatly missed by his parents, daughter Jazmine Kenny, stepsons Jesse Newman and Justin Newman, mother to Jazmine, Jesse and Justin, Barbara Kenny, one sister Brenda (Brent) Friske, two brothers Keith Kenny and John Kenny, grandson Noah Allison, as well as several nieces and nephews.
The family will receive relatives and friends from Northumberland Funeral Home at a later date. Mass of Christian Burial will take place at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Cemetery, in Nelson, at a later date.
As expression of sympathy, donations may be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association or to a memorial of one’s choice.
Funeral arrangements are in the care of Northumberland Funeral Home, 102 Pleasant St, telephone 622-7741
