Robert "Bob" S. Kenney

On May 4th Robert "Bob" S. Kenney died at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury. He was born March 14, 1926, in Delmar, a son of the late George W. Kenney and Ruth M. Dickerson Kenney. For 17 years he was the Delmar Animal Control Officer. He was also one of those many relatives of mine, perhaps one of those 32nd cousins once removed that populate this area. He was so much a product of his generation, always kept a job, went to war, stayed married and raised kids.

He is survived by his beloved wife of 64 years, Ruth Lloyd Kenney; a daughter, Darlene Fisher of Salisbury; a granddaughter, Danielle Harris and her husband, Jimmie, of Salisbury; great-grandchildren, Kelsi and Carter Harris; and a sister, Martha Robinson of Salisbury. He is also survived by several nieces and nephews. The family would like to express sincere thanks to Robert and Terri Brown of Salisbury.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two sisters, Elizabeth Rayne and Florence Wilson; and three brothers, Charles, Walter and Richard Kenney.

A visitation for family and friends will be held Tuesday from 1-2 p.m. at Short Funeral Home at 13 E. Grove St. in Delmar. A funeral service will be held Tuesday at 2 p.m. The Rev. Tom Bunting will officiate. Interment with military honors will be held in Springhill Memory Gardens near Hebron.
