  2. Dear Kennedy Family,
    Sorry to hear of your father’s death. What great parents you had who raised wonder young ladies.

  3. If I looked up the definition of gentleman in the dictionary, I would probably see a picture of Pat.

    A loving husband and father, a good friend, faithful Catholic, treasured employee of Kutis Funeral Home and a proud Irishman.

    I know he is in Heaven, but I will miss his presence at St. Wenceslaus.

  4. Dear Mr. Kennedy family,
    Very sorry for your loss. Mr. Kennedy will be missed by everyone that knew him. Please accept my deepest condolences.

  5. What an enjoyable and thoughtful man! I knew him only from attending the noon Mass at St. Vincent de Paul and later, much to the surprise of both of us, as my cousin’s roommate in the nursing home, and finally from a chance meeting at a Saturday evening Mass at St. Wenceslaus.
    His joyful celebration of his patron saint’s feast will remain a part of my own1

  6. Pat was and still is one of the gentleman who comes to mind when you think about Kutis Funeral Homes. When I started working at the City full time, I had the pleasure of his smile and laugh each day. Always looked forward to his St. Patrick’s day card and was honored to be in the circle of friends who received it. Best wishes to his family for a Husband, Father, and Grandfather on a life well lived.

  7. It was a pleasure to know Pat Kennedy. We first met when, as a pastor, I conducted funerals at McLaughlin’s, then later at Kutis Funeral Homes. He was always so very kind and helpful. I was always glad when Pat was on one of our funerals!
    Then in more recent years we frequented the same restaurant for breakfast and lunch – i.e. Bar Roma.
    Just recently he left a nice St. Patrick’s day greeting card for me, which was per usual.

    May the God of all comfort be with the Kennedy family! (2 Corinthians 1:3-4)

  10. Pat,
    He was in our exercise class with his two daughters, Sara & Julie and often the class would meet at Cecil’s on Grand for lunch. He was amazing man that was always so pleasant and kind to everyone. I would look forward to receiving his St. Patrick’s family picture in the mail every year.

    I know he is happy in heaven with his wife Pat who he missed so dearly. Patrick you have earned your wings in heaven, may you rest in peace.
