May 7, 1948 – September 5, 2020
On Saturday September 5, 2020, Tim Kennedy, incredibly loved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, brother-in-law, friend and one of the best and most awesome men in our lives, left us much too soon after an extremely short battle with cancer.
Tim was born in Cranbrook, BC on May 7, 1948 and had many great memories of growing up in a small community. He said the best days of his life were spent near the Eastport-Kingsgate border crossing where his Dad worked as a Customs Officer.
He jointed the RCMP in the spring of 1975. After graduation in 1976 he was posted to the Yukon where he always said he met the only woman who would put up with him. He married Liz in 1978 and they built a life together.
Forty-two years of adventures followed; with moves from the Yukon to Newfoundland, back to BC and finally to Alberta.
Forever in our hearts, he will be remembered and missed by his wife Liz, sons Ryan Kennedy (Sam) and grandson Ari, Justin Kennedy and Brad Chappell (Aleta) and grandsons Hayes and Cowan; brother Pat Kennedy; sisters-in-law Noreen Kennedy and Terry Kennedy, and fondly known as BIL (brother in law) to Bob and Ginny Alger, John Meston, Stuart and Shelagh Meston and Dave and MJ Reich; many nieces and nephews and his very best friends Mike Littlejohn, Joe Mitchell and Ed Basaraba. He is greatly missed by his constant companion Baxter.

If friends/family would like, donations may be made to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.
At Tim’s request there will be no formal service. However, a celebration of his life is being planned for June 12, 2021 in Edmonton when family and friends can safely gather together to share stories. Please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org for updates.
There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in our hearts – Gandhi
