Obituary of Harold Kenny

It is with deep sadness that the family of Harold Kenny announce his death, which occurred on Tuesday, December 14, 2021, at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Saint John, New Brunswick. Born in Bathurst, NB, on May 5, 1946, he was a son of the late Patrick and Clara (Allain) Kenny.

Harold is survived by his loving wife, Opal Kenny of Hampton, NB; son, Jason Kenny (Amanda) of Ottawa, ON; daughter, Jennifer Kenny (Bill) of Hampton; grandchildren: Danielle and Alexander; siblings: Richard Kenny (Jacinthe), Grace Castonguay (Paul), Gordon Kenny (Doris), Peter Kenny (Mireille), Mary Kenny, and Margaret Kenny; brother-in-law, Stuart Garrett; as well as many extended family members. In addition to his parents, Harold was predeceased by his sister Cécile Garrett.

Harold was a family man, who loved travelling and exploring new places, always ready to experience new foods and beers. He also enjoyed camping and taking road trips in his RoadTrek. He was an astute businessman who completed a long career in land management highlighted with the remediation of the Moncton CN Shop properties. With a zest for gaining and sharing knowledge, he had a further distinction of being a regular guest lecturer at Queen’s University Industrial Relations Centre on the subject of Change Management.
