KENNEDY, Cecil Louis 'Murray' – (March 29, 1928 – November 25, 2017) – With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Cecil Louis ‘Murray’ Kennedy, in his 90th year.
Devoted father of Blaine (Candace) of Brantford, Darryl (Paula) of Oshawa, Craig (Michelle) of Omemee, and Eric (Gail) of Lindsay. Cherished grandfather of Daniel, Sarah, and Lara; Samantha, Trevor, and Jocelyn; Michael and Ian. Longtime very special friend of Jean Smart of Lindsay.
As an avid cattleman, Murray’s knowledge of cattle and the markets led him to know many farmers throughout Ontario in his early years as a trucker and later in his job as a livestock marketer for the United Cooperative of Ontario and the Ontario Stockyards at Cookstown.
Murray’s love of old-time fiddle music took him far and wide to ‘call a square’ and he was an active member of Kawartha Antique Power, Omemee Farmers' Club and Fenelon Old-Tyme Music Association.
