On Wednesday, November 7th, our beloved Dermot Kenny passed away unexpectedly. We, his family, are feeling the enormity of his loss & are left heartbroken.

 

We remember Dermot as a devoted husband, loving father, and a loyal friend to many. Known as a generous and gentle soul by all those who spent time with Dermot, he is survived by many loved ones. Dermot was a vibrant man, often breaking out the guitar at family gatherings to ensure a lively and laugh filled get together. He shared his passion for live music and the company of friends & family with his loving wife, my sister, Michelle Kenny. Michelle, his children - Lily & Ryan, and the rest of our family will cherish those moments when we think of Dermot and the special bonds he forged. Dermot was a true family man outside of work, creating happy memories with Michelle, Lily & Ryan. The love Dermot felt for Lily Rose & Ryan was unmatched and clear to anyone who knew him. From cheering his children on from the sidelines at sporting events to family vacations to Delaware, he and Michelle built a loving home together - passing down their love of music to their daughter Lily, who Dermot loved to watch sing, & Ryan who had already begun to learn how to strum the guitar from his father.

 

We have launched this GoFundMe in honor of Dermot’s memory, but more importantly as a lasting tribute for his children so that they may always know what a great man their father was and how loved he was by so many. All proceeds from this fundraiser will be used for the educational needs of Lily & Ryan in an effort to ensure that my sister, Michelle, does not carry the financial burden alone.

I wanted to take a moment to express both myself & my family’s sincere gratitude at the overwhelming support we have received from all our loved ones, particularly all 261 donors. We’ve taken comfort in the enormous outpour of love & generosity that Dermot’s memory has inspired. In time, I will thank you all individually but for the time being I want to share our appreciation broadly. Not only have each of you directly aided in ensuring my niece and nephew will benefit from educational funds, but you’ve helped to build a lasting memorial of how loved their father was for years to come. For those who have heard how Dermot rescued an injured swan from the West Side Highway in the eulogy, I am attaching the Youtube video of when dermot released the swan after it made a full recovery.



Thank you all so very much,
Fiona
