at the age of 70 years

A celebration of life will be held for family and friends at 1:00 pm on Saturday Feb 4th, 2017 at Lakers Clubhouse (7000 Cummins Road, Vernon BC).

It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Edward (Ted) Frederick Kenny on Jan 22nd, 2017. Ted was born on June 30th, 1946 in High Prairie, Alberta. Edward moved to Vernon in 1975 where he practiced law for 28 years.
Survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Elizabeth; Son Allan (Chass), daughters Lisa (Bryan) Goble and Leona (Glen) Davey. Grandchildren:  Larissa, Patrick, Ashton, Danica, Rylan, Shayna, Shantel and Bryson.
Ted was an active curler in the 70’s to the early 2000’s at his local rink in Vernon, BC and was club champion in 1981-82. However, his passion was fishing. You could always find Ted from early spring to the fall fishing on one of the many mountain lakes in the Okanagan or salmon fishing on Vancouver Island.  So many good laughs were had and wonderful memories made on the annual Kenny fishing trips.
A celebration of life will be held for family and friends at 1:00 pm on Saturday Feb 4th, 2017 at Lakers Clubhouse (7000 Cummins Road, Vernon BC).
In lieu of flowers the family would appreciate donations to the BC Cancer Foundation.
We would like to thank the nurses and doctors for the great care they provided at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital in the last month of his life.



  1. We just happened to see the notice in an older edition of the Morning Star. Condolences to you and your family, Liz. While my mother was with you we were well aware of how Ted was such a big part of all your lives. Bernard and Brenda

  2. Sorry for your loss Liz, my condolences to you and your family.

  3. Dear Liz and family. I am so sorry to read of your loss this weekend in the Morning Star. I first me Ted as a young 29 year old lawyer when he first came to Vernon. He was the backbone of the Conveyancing lawyers at that time, and served the Block Brothers Realty team very well with reliable, efficient and timely conveyances. I have not seen Ted for about 10 years, but will always have an open spot in my heart for him. My prayers are with you Liz to stay strong.

  4. Liz, we’re so sorry to hear of your husband’s passing. Although we did not know Ted, please accept our condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
    Jake & Edna Derksen

  5. I am fortunate to have met, worked and played with Ted for 40 years. I have fond memories of someone I called my big brother. He was a wise and level headed man. When I got myself into trouble he said come talk to me first and I did just that. He was a small man with a big heart. I will miss him dearly. Davie. We are both so very sorry for your loss, and will miss him. Love from Barb and Dave Shandro

  6. I was saddened to read of Ted’s passing. Ted was a lawyers lawyer, an honourable man and one well respected in the legal community. This did not end with the challenges that Ted faced in his career. He was supportive to those in his profession in the most steadfast way, actively trying to help out new members getting started, and more experienced members having trouble. Ted’s staff loved him, he put them first and took an interest in their lives. Ted was not just an employer, he was a friend to his staff. His passing is a loss to the community.

  7. So sorry Liz in the loss of Ted. We are thinking of you and we are sorry we will not be able to attend the service as we are away from Vernon.

    Our deepest condolences and take care of yourself, you are a special lady.
