Of Everett. Born on May 6, 1954 to the late State Representative and Mrs. John P. Kennedy, departed this life on December 13th, 2022, at the young age of 68. Loving grandson of the late Sabina “Nana” Higgins from Galway Bay Ireland. Jonny leaves to mourn his passing, two sons Ryan, Mark and his fiancée Alexa, and their mother Christine Kennedy and two nieces, Sabrina and Kaitlyn, and their mother Linda Kennedy; He is predeceased by his brothers Tommy, Bobby, Mark, and Teddy. He is also survived by other siblings, nieces, nephews, cousins and many loyal friends. His passing has left a huge void in the lives of those who loved him.
Jonny enjoyed walking on the beach, bike riding, swimming, reading and socializing with friends. He always filled a room with light and laughter. He had a contagious smile, and a personable, goofy sense of humor. Jonny never owned a cell phone and read at least three newspapers a day.
Relatives and friends gathered to honor, remember, and celebrate Jonny’s life, during a period of visitation to be held at JF Ward Funeral Home, Everett on Monday, December 19th followed by a Christian Mass of Resurrection at the Immaculate Conception Church, Everett. Concluding with a graveside service at Woodlawn Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Massachusetts General Hospital – Cardiac Rehabilitation Program, 25 New Chardon Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02114.
So glad to have lived.
