Gerald Kenna

December 14, 1944 — December 6, 2021


Gerald Edward Kenna, better known as “Jerry”, age 76 of Dublin, PA, entered the presence of his Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, on December 6, 2021.

Jerry was born on December 14, 1944, to Charles and Violet Kenna in Philadelphia, PA. After growing up in Western Pennsylvania, he returned to the Philadelphia area at the age of 17. As a young man he began working in the mining and quarrying industry, repairing equipment, and building roads. He went on to become a self-employed businessman, consulting and dealing in crushing equipment.

In 1966, Jerry married the love of his life, Nancy. He was a devoted, faithful, and loving husband. On September 3, 2021 they celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. Together they had two daughters, Holly and Melissa. He was affectionately called “Pappy” and dearly loved by his seven grandchildren: Colin, Madeline, Viktor, Anthony, Benjamin, Sofia, and Wesley Maltsev.

Jerry is survived by his loving wife, Nancy; his daughters, Holly (Philip) McLanahan and Melissa (Dimitri) Maltsev; his seven grandchildren; and a brother, James (Jeanne) Kenna. He was predeceased by a granddaughter, Kimberly Maltsev.
