Obituary

NOTICE: Obituary updated with new service times.

It is with great sadness the Kennedy family wishes to announce the sudden passing of Jay Lee Kennedy, of Woodstock, on October 7th, 2019, in his 40th year. Born in London, Ontario to James and Christine (Chessman) Kennedy, on January 25th, 1980, Jay was a passionate fan of the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey club and he would be described by anyone that knew him as a fun loving, caring individual that enjoyed personal fitness.

Jay will be lovingly remembered by his adoring daughter Jaelyn Christina Joy Kennedy and by his special stepdaughters Emma Lee Schweyer and Mekayla Amberly Schweyer. Husband to Amber Kennedy, of Woodstock for over 10 years. Jay is survived by his siblings Judithann (James Martin) and their children: Jade Kennedy (Trey), their daughter Charlotte, and Carson Purdy, of Stratford; James Kennedy (Stephanie) and their daughter Alyxandria, of London. Jay leaves behind many friends and family members that he loved and cherished. Funeral and cremation arrangements have been entrusted to the Maurice J. Verhoeve Funeral Homes- Burial and Cremation Services Inc., 262 Broadway Street, Tillsonburg.

A Private Celebration of Life Funeral Service will take place on Tuesday, October 15th, 2019 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. in the Maurice J. Verhoeve Funeral Homes Chapel, Tillsonburg.

Friends, relatives and co-workers are invited by Jay's family to attend a time of visitation on Tuesday from 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the funeral home chapel.

My heart is heavy with sadness. My boys have had wonderful memories and amazing friends growing up and over the years. Jay, I will always remember that smile of yours. Our prayers go out to the entire Kennedy family, Jays wife, children, his siblings and parents. Jay would want you all to form and hold a loving bond with each other during these difficult times. The next few days, months and years will be hard and filled with questions. He would want you all to stand strong and unite as a family, protect his memory with love and friendship amongst yourselves. Hugs Penny Smith (Wade)
