Ronald (Ron) Henry Kenyon Sr., age 73, a lifelong resident of Scranton, passed away Wednesday morning at Geisinger Community Medical Center. He is survived by his best friend and beloved wife, Margaret (Doyle) Kenyon. Married on April 25, 1969, the couple recently celebrated their 54th anniversary.
Ronald was born on September 26, 1949 to the late George H. and Marjorie (Sipple) Kenyon. He was educated at West Scranton High School and also served in the U.S. Army prior to his honorable discharge on December 13, 1978. For the majority of his professional career, he worked as a driver and later as a dispatcher. He was employed by Notarianni Trucking before DiMare Fresh, where he had worked until his retirement.
In his younger years, Ron enjoyed golfing, was a fixture on the local bowling league circuit and was a great dart player. He was a diehard fan of the New York Giants and he never met a word search puzzle that he didn’t enjoy solving. Above all else came his family, as his wife, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were the focal point of his world. His kind heart, generosity, and love for his family will never be forgotten.
Of Roman Catholic faith, he was a longtime member of St. Patrick’s Parish in West Scranton.
He is survived by his loving family, including children Ronald Kenyon, Jr. and wife Laurie of Eynon and Marjorie Gray and husband Todd of Peckville; six grandchildren, Allie Ruddy, Vikki Kenyon Bryer, Josh Kenyon, Sakura, Kaia and Rhys Gray; his great grandsons, Joseph and Casey Ruddy; his siblings, G. Paul Kenyon and wife Joyce of Moosic, Robert Kenyon and wife Cheryl of Clarks Summit, Patricia Sylvester and husband Eddie of East Stroudsburg and Lorraine Coleman of Clarks Summit; and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his beloved infant son, Christopher Michael Kenyon, and brother-in-law, Jack Coleman.
A Mass of Christian Burial is scheduled for Monday at 11:00 AM at St. Patrick’s Church, 1403 Jackson St., Scranton, to be celebrated by Rev. Richard Fox, Pastor. Burial will follow at Fairview Memorial Park in Elmhurst Twp. Family and friends may pay their respects at the church on Monday from 10:00 AM until Mass. Those wishing to attend the funeral are asked to go directly to the church.
Arrangements are under the care of the Kevin K. Kearney Funeral Home Inc., 125 N. Main Ave., Scranton.
