DOD: April 24, 2018


Kenneth S. McGinnis, 43, a son, a brother, a husband, a dad, an uncle, a friend, and an addict. Kenny lost his battle with addiction April 24, 2018. Heroin robbed him, and all of us of his infectious smile, his laugh, the intensity he expressed in every word he spoke, and the extraordinary effort he put into every endeavor in life. His intelligence, humor, athleticism, strength, and ability to build and fix anything is how we will remember him. The sparkle in his eyes when he looked at his kids, nieces, and nephews, the unbreakable bond he had with his wife are a testament to how deeply his emotions ran within him. His persona was larger than life. The effort he put forth in every task at hand was palpable. A young man who epitomized strength could not slay this dragon. Your pain has ceased, your hands untied, fly free now.
Ken leaves behind his loving wife Mary Ellen McGinnis, and their two children Tommy and MJ, beloved mother Barbara McGinnis, brother Kevin, and wife Diana McGinnis and their two children, Jamison and Alana, sister Kelly, and husband Duff O’ Melia and their seven children, Maddie, Gavin, Keagan, Luke, Gabby, Makinley and Logan, his sister Kathryn, husband Brian Healy, and their son Brendan, his in-laws, Mary Jane, Wally, Peggy, Walter Jr., his cousins Beth, Nancy, Amy, and Eric, aunt Betty Popko, aunt Marge, and uncle Gary Johnson, and many special friends, especially Hugh and John Kerrigan who he considered his brothers. Hugh, you never gave up hope and continued to support and offer opportunities to Kenny until the day he lost his battle. He was predeceased by his dear father, Robert G. McGinnis.
