Donald S. Kennedy ’44

Published in Oct. 24, 2001, issue

After many years of suffering from Alzheimer's, Don died on Apr. 4, 2001; a memorial service was held in Westhampton Beach, N.Y., on May 19.

A graduate of Lawrenceville Academy, he was the son of James Kennedy '11, a Daily Princetonian editor. Don was a member of Cannon Club; he roomed with Doug Donald.

After service in WWII as a bombardier in the Asian theater, he enjoyed a career as an investment banker starting with Kidder Peabody.

His home for many years was in the Oyster Bay and Quogue areas of Long Island, where he was active in community affairs, including the presidency of the Quogue Pool and Tennis Club. In retirement, he became a licensed real estate agent.

Don was predeceased by his wife, Toby. His first wife, Barbara, and their two children, Dana and David, survive, as do a grandchild and three stepchildren, Robin, Renee and Mary Jo. Dana noted that "Dad remembered the words of the Fight Song up until the end, and this would always bring a smile to his face." We share in the family's loss of a loving Tiger.
