David  L.  Kennedy, Jr.

The Kennedy, Walbuck, Mcgee and Togba families regret to announce the death of their son; husband; father; brother; uncle; nephew and cousin, Mr. David L. Kennedy, Jr., AKA Sankay/Junior. This sad event occurred at the John F. Kennedy Memorial Medical Center on August 24, 2018, at the precise hour of 10:26 P.M.

Sankay or Junior as he was affectionately called, worked for the Ricks Institute and the Liberia Basketball Federation (LBF) for many years. He leaves to mourn his wife (Florence Togba-Kennedy), four children (Victoria Kennedy,Ophelia Kennedy and his 2 other children where about still unknown since the Liberian civil war); his siblings (Williametta Lawrence-Okon; Enos Kennedy; Christiana Kennedy-Yaidoo; Gbagalo Kennedy; Malaveley Kennedy; Telewoda Kennedy; Flora Kennedy, Mulbah Kennedy and Rebecca Kennedy) and, a host of other relatives and friends.

Junior was a loving husband, brother and father. He was such a calm person but stood up for whatever he believed in. He always ended his conversation and phone call with these words “I Love You” and we responded with, we love you too! Junior will truly be missed!!

A  Prayer
“Dear Lord, thank You for bestowing Your grace, strength and eternal mercy upon our family during this time of bereavement and also for being our refuge and fortress. You are our rock and anchor hold, the only One we can rely on. Thank You for many blessings and we are grateful for the breath of life each day.  In Jesus Name, Amen”!
