James F. Kennedy
February 19, 1935 - February 23, 2016
It is with profound sadness but also great hope in the resurrection that we announce the passing of James Frederick Kennedy on February 23, 2016. Devoted and loving husband to Judith for 54 years, brother of Anne (McKenzie) of London, Ontario, father of Andrew (Andrea), Michael, Carolyn (Stephen), Peter (Katherine) and Timothy (Nicola). He was an amazing “Poppa” to 19 wonderful grandchildren. We remember him for his love of the outdoors and the cottage, canoe trips, skiing, blueberry pie and strawberry jam, love of travel, frugal extravagance, and his great love of family. Many will know Jim as a former partner at Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt, past Chairman of Wycliffe College (Toronto), former Chancellor of the Diocese of Moosonee (Anglican Church), long-time board member of the Foster Hewitt Foundation and the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi (Canada), and past President of the International Academy of Estate and Trust Law, among many other involvements. He was also a long-term parishioner at his beloved Little Trinity Anglican Church, where he served in various leadership roles. We give thanks to God for his great life, and look forward to celebrating his life with friends and family (see details below).
