Sean K. Kenny

Sean K. Kenny  –  of Woburn, April 18th, at fifty nine years of age.  Beloved son of the late Francis E. and Thelma G. (Freeman) Kenny.  Cherished brother of James B. Kenny of  Washington, DC, Virginia Ball of TX, Robert E. Kenny of Tewksbury, Gerald E. Kenny of Woburn and Jane C. Young of TX.  Also survived by several loving nieces, nephews and friends. Due to the current situation we are experiencing with the Corona Virus, arrangements are private and under the direction of the Lynch – Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn. 

Sean P. Kenny passed away at the Lahey Clinic, Saturday, April 18th. The beloved son of the late Francis E. and Thelma G. (Freeman) Kenny, Sean was fifty nine years of age.

A life long resident of Woburn, Sean resided in a group home with four other residents, whom he adored! When it came to parties, birthday celebrations and family gatherings, particularly at “Uncle Rick’s” home, Sean was in his element and full of fun!

Sean’s daily activities centered at NuPath, an adult activities center for the disabled. There, Sean had his own, very favorite seat, and wooden blocks, he would not share! Sean’s favorite activities there included light cooking and music.

Pizza and apple pie were amongst his most preferred foods. “The Wizard of Oz” was a movie Sean has enjoyed watching over his lifetime, at least once a day! Always with his Red Sox cap, Sean surrendered it to no one!

Sean was a very gentle soul, with attitude! His welcomes were full of smiles and laughter! The relationship he shared with his family over the years, was full of love and only grew stronger, if that was even possible, over the years.

Sean’s departure now is sad, but for his family and anyone else who shared in Sean’s life , will always remember him with a big smile and very fond memories.

Due to the current situation we are experiencing with the Corona Virus, arrangements are private and under the direction of the Lynch – Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn.

  1. Sean you were a great guy! You had a wonderful nature, enjoyed the simple things in life, and thought well of others. My condolences to the whole Kenny family. It has been a privilege to know Sean and the people at NuPath and Susan Terrace who took such wonderful care of him for so many years. He wanted for nothing and appreciated everything he had. I am sure that if we believe there is a God in heaven that “Perpetual light will shine upon him and remain with him forever.”

  2. So sad. ? We babysat Shawn a lot when he was younger, he was our brother-in-law, Jimmy’s brother! He went to sleep every night to the record, the Wizard of Oz! He was such a kind soul! He loved our sister, Jane, so much, I am sure she welcomed him with open arms to heaven! RIP Sean ❤️ Nancy & Barbara

  3. Oh Sean I miss you more then I can express. You bought so much joy to my heart when you would reach out for my hand and smile. You were like a wonderful puzzle challenging but once solved your beauty was revealed. You never held a grudge, you loved unconditionally and you shared that gift with everyone that had the pleasure of knowing you. Susan Terrace will never be the same and every time I walk through the door I will look for your smiling face. Rest well sweet Sean “It was a good fight, friend.” L.Frank Baum

    My dearest Sean, I never wanted to say goodbye. I was keeping you with me forever and I was staying with you. My heart is completely broken and I will miss you oh so much. We have been through so much, and I wish I could have been holding your hand when you needed me most. I will miss your grumbles but I will miss your smile and laughter the most. Your hugs were infectious and if I had the power this day would never have come. When I didn’t think I could go on, I would see you and the excitement on your face and you reaching out your hand for me to rub was everything I needed. You gave me purpose. I thank you for the love and guidance that you gave me. You will remain in my heart forever. May God rest your beautiful soul. Be free my love. The Emerald City awaits your precious arrival.

  9. You will always be in my thoughts. You always smiled and occasionally you let me kiss you on the cheek… you had such patience waiting to share some of the treats I brought for Billy.
    It has been at least 20 years you two lived in the same house and attended the same day care.
    God grant your family peace. You will be missed.
