Stephen "Rat" Kenney Obituary
Stephen Kenney "Rat"

Stephen Kenney, 54, passed away peacefully at home on January 14, 2016. He was born in Wilmington, DE to the late John and Mary Kenney. Stephen graduated from Christiana High School and worked many years in the concrete industry. His favorite pastimes included cheering on his favorite football teams, the Dallas Cowboy's and the Miami Hurricanes (to Stephen it was All ABOUT THE "U"). Stephen was the happiest when he was cooking for his family and forcing them to eat more than they could handle. He was a bigger than life kind of guy who had a heart as big as Texas. Stephen was a very proud godfather to Donte DiVincenzo and one of his biggest fans and cherished his other godson Delayne Francis Doyle. He was passionate about giving back to the men and women who have fought for our country. Stephen will be deeply missed by his family and friends.

He was preceded in death by his siblings, Robert Kenney, Nicolette Hallock, Rev. Francis Kenney and his step-children, Lindsay S. Johnson and Jerry L. Johnson, II. Stephen is survived by his wife, Renee Kenney, his brother-in-law Ricky Boone (Kimberly), Theodore Boone (Maria), his sister-in-laws, Linda Wright and Betty Scheblo, his many cousins, nieces and nephews and his beloved dog Irvin Howard.
