David Kenyon was born on November 6, 1937. He passed on February 28, 2015. He was born in Vernon, Michigan, the eldest of three sons born to Russell and Rose Kenyon. He met his wife of 57 years, Kay Senter, at Dearborn High School. They married in 1957. He attended LaSalle College in Philadelphia. David was formerly of Lansing, MI.
David and Kay started their family in New Jersey, before moving to Michigan to join his father and brother in business. David represented Data Supplies Company in the greater Lansing area where he developed many business relationships and lifelong friendships. David was predeceased by his brother Tom. He is survived by his brother, Edward; his wife, Kay; four children, David (Julie), Wendy, Kris (Scott) Fisher, Jeff (Vincent); and 6 grandchildren, Jaymes, Joel (Kelly), Andrew, Kara, Alexi and Karly. David was thrilled to be a great-grandfather to Olive.
David was an avid reader, moviegoer, and sports fan. He thoroughly enjoyed watching his grandchildren’s athletic events and occasionally refereeing from the sidelines. He was faithful to the politics on Fox News but absolutely nothing compared to the passion he felt for his beloved Wolverines especially on Fall Saturdays.
The Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 6, 2015, at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in East Lansing, Michigan. The family will receive friends at the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. Thursday, and also at the church on Friday beginning at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial contributions to the Wounded Warrior Project.
