Tom was born June 19, 1927 in Chicago to the late Thomas and Eleanor (Patton) Kenny. He was preceded in death by his beautiful wife Janet Loraine (Haley) Kenny who he married on December 30, 1962. He was also preceded in death by his sister Patsy Maroney.
Tom’s loved ones describe him as a wild, free spirited, and humorous storyteller. He always had a crazy and entertaining story to share with all. There is no doubt that he lived a full life filled with many unbelievable, sometimes even dangerous, adventures! Forty-one years ago Tom quit drinking and ever since he has helped others to do the same. His determination, heart, and leadership skills have inspired hundreds if not thousands of people to get sober. He will be missed by many!
Survivors include: his siblings Sheila O’connell and William Kenny; his children Tommy Kenny, Billy Kenny, Mike Kenny, Angel Cohen, Tina Eisenberger, John Kenny, Haley Kenny, and Marianne Kenny; grandchildren: Crystal Kenny, Joey Gurgone, Anneli Rickaby, Maegen Porto, Bryan Cohen, Jonathon Kenny, Michael Kenny, Lauren Cohen, Joseph Kenny, Greta Kenny, Connor Kenny, and Riley Kenny; and ten amazing great grandchildren Danny, Angelo, Giannni, Briella, Braeden, Casyn, Mason, Cam, Jax, Keller, and Trey.
