Mayor Kenney released the following statement on the passing of his father, James F. Kenney:

“I want to thank Philadelphians near and far for their thoughtful messages of comfort to me and family. My father was my hero.

He was a wonderful provider, terrific role model, and one of my biggest motivators throughout my life. His work as a Philadelphia firefighter inspired me to pursue a career in service to others. And he taught me and my siblings the most important lesson: always respect others, no matter what their background or views. My father meant the world to my family and he will be truly missed.

I appreciate the words of encouragement which have helped us find the peace we need in a difficult time.”

James F. Kenney’s obituary is available at https://www.egizifuneral.com/obituary/james-f-kenney/. Relatives and friends are invited to attend his visitation on Friday 6:00-9:00 pm at the Egizi Funeral Home, 119 Ganttown Rd., Turnersville, NJ. Mass of Christian Burial is on Saturday 11:00 am at St. Charles Borromeo RC Church, 176 Stagecoach Rd., Sicklerville, NJ.  Interment Gloucester County Veterans Memorial Cemetery, Williamstown, NJ.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Jim’s memory may be made to St. Charles Borromeo RC Church, 176 Stagecoach Rd., Sicklerville, NJ 08081. Condolences may be shared with the family at egizifuneral.com.
