Obituary for James E. "Jim" Kennedy, Jr.

November 25, 2018
Levittown, Pennsylvania


James E. Kennedy, Jr., "Jim", of Levittown, PA, my love, my life, and my world passed onto eternal peace on Sunday, November 25, 2018 at the age of 88. Born in Philadelphia, PA to the late James E., Sr. and Bessie Kennedy, Jim was a proud Air Force Veteran. He first enlisted as a young man then became a Mechanical Engineer at Leeds and Northrup for 30 years. After his retirement, Jim re-enlisted in the Air Force and National Guard for 22 years, finishing his Military career with the rank of Master Sergeant. Jim was also a member of several Masonic Lodges, Yacht Clubs and the Shriners, and participated in many of their functions.

Jim was full of adventure and enjoyed life to the fullest. He and Alice enjoyed cruising and sailing on the Chesapeake in their boat, the "Jamali." Jim will be missed by his family and friends and will forever be remembered as a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, and friend.

Preceded in death by his brothers, Ken and Bill, Jim is survived by his beloved wife of 67 years, Alice (nee Keates) Kennedy, his daughter, Cheryl (Lou), son, James (Barbara), granddaughters, Andrea (Nick) and Jessica (Tom), and great grandchildren, Brody and Brayden. Jim is also survived by his nephews Bill, Robby, and Paul, and sister in-law Evelyn Manna.
