JONATHAN KENNEDY

JONATHAN ALLAN KENNEDY Jonathan Allan Kennedy, aged 28, died peacefully on March 2, 2013, at the St. Boniface Hospital, surrounded by those who loved him. He is survived by his brothers Rob Whyte, John MacLean, Michael Whyte, Dave Tucker, Don Smith, Bob Allen, Andrew Bryk, Charles Lerm, Cody Whyte, Chris Mikolajek, Vince Thiessen, Mike Batenchuk, Grayson Smart, Russ Myhal, Enrico Detomasis, Jim Whyte, Dave Kondratuk, James MacLean, Joe Ogums, Rob Dyck, Rick Voss, Gord Mashinter, Brad Black, Jim Sanders; sisters Jamie Warywoda, Lisa LaBossiere, Shaune Whyte, Christie Newcombe, Jeannette Whyte, Marilyn Ross; and all whose hearts he touched. Jonathan touched many people with the love and kindness he gave and in return we gave him all the love we could give. Jonathan was always very generous with hugs and I love you and made all of our lives that much better knowing how much he cared. Jon loved his family and friends more than anything else in life with the exception of his love Britney Spears and HBK who topped the charts. Jon was an avid sports fan and was loyal to his two favorite teams, the Phoenix Coyotes and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers; he never missed a game with his season tickets. Jon loved to sing and dance to his favourite music anytime, anywhere, and for all to enjoy. He was also a great fisherman, whether Summer or Winter, as he was always ready and managed to get himself a couple of Master Anglers. Jon left all who knew him with great memories and stories to share. Special thanks to the St. Boniface Hospital exceptional ICU nurses and doctors, especially Dr. Park, for the support and kindness. Funeral services will be held on Thursday, March 7, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. at Mary Mother of the Church, Winnipeg, MB. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Jonathan's name to his favourite charity, Children's Wish (http://www.childrenswish.ca), or the St. Boniface Hospital Foundation through the Circle of Compassionate Care program. WE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU BROTHER.

  • Our boy JK left us far to soon and I think of him every day and especially when I think things are rough. Will be missed forever and I am a better person for having been involved in his life. Kings will always be better than the Coyotes Jonny
