Thomas Henry Kenney Obituary
Thomas Henry Kenney

AGE: 80 • Ocean Township

Thomas Kenney has been reunited with his beloved wife and soulmate, Marie. He passed away on Tuesday, March 14 at home in Wanamassa at the age of 80.

Born and raised in Bridgeport, CT, Tom graduated Warren Harding High School in 1955 and later continued his education at the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts.

In 1956, Tom decided to join the Signals School Radar Repair and did two months of basic training at Fort Dix in NJ. He was then sent to Fort Monmouth in Eatontown, where he met his one and only love, Marie Candiano. Tom was transferred to the 64th Signal Detachment at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro, CA and there they married in June, 1957.

The young couple settled in Wanamassa, NJ, where they remained for their entire lives, raising three daughters.

Tom had a long career in advertising, beginning at Ambrose & Borrie in Asbury Park and then opening his own business, Barnes & Kenney Advertising Agency in 1973. He retired in 2000 and devoted much of his time to his passions: gardening, cooking and his grandchildren.

In addition to Marie's passing in 2015, Tom was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Barbara Kenney and his brothers, Joe, Bob and Larry. He is survived by his sister, Sue Monck (and Richard) of Prospect, CT, his three daughters, Teresa and Michael Gilbertson of Wanamassa, Kathleen and Thomas Giglio of Oakhurst and Christina and Craig Bass of Westfield. He will be forever missed by his six adoring grandchildren; Dana Gilbertson, Jack Giglio and Ryan, Cami, Hannah and Patrick Bass.
