Felton D. Kenney of Boise, Idaho, known to his friends as “Bud” and to his granddaughters as “Pop-Pop,” passed peacefully at the age of 90 on Oct 25, 2022, surrounded by his loving family. He is survived by his wife of 58 years, Peggy Morrissey Kenney; his son Michael Kenney and wife, Audrey Vaclavik Kenney; and two granddaughters, Ashley and Brooke. He is also survived in Southwest Harbor by his sisters Ruth Jellison and Jane Kenney, nephew George Jellison Jr. and niece Aimee Williams. He was predeceased by two sons, Scott and Daniel, by his parents, Felton and Alice, and by his older sister Barbara Moser and her husband, Earl. Bud was born to Felton and Alice Kenney on July 3, 1932, in Clarke’s Harbor, Nova Scotia, and grew up in Southwest Harbor, surrounded by the beauty of Acadia National Park and three sisters. He graduated from Pemetic High School, where he was a starter on both the varsity basketball and baseball teams. He faithfully attended class reunions every summer until his health prevented it in recent years. Following high school, Bud enlisted in the Air Force in 1954 and was selected for pilot training. Upon earning his wings, Bud embarked on a 20-year career flying fighters including the F-86 Sabre and the F-102 Delta Dagger (aka the Deuce). Accumulating over 5,000 flight hours, he was rated a Command Pilot, served in Vietnam, and was awarded the Bronze Star. He was also awarded the Air Force Distinguished Service Medal and Air Medal with V-Device and Oak Leaf Cluster. Bud and Peggy met at the Officers Club at Perrin Air Force Base in Sherman, Texas, and were married in 1964. They both loved his years in the Air Force and participated until recently in Flying 58th Squadron reunions every year, with Bud organizing events in both Boise and Southwest Harbor. Following his retirement from the Air Force, Bud and Peggy returned to her hometown of Arlington, Texas, where they raised their family. Bud started a second career as a purchasing director for Dobbs Houses and subsequently Host Marriott, supplying food and beverages to the airlines (when they actually served food on flights) and the restaurants/bars in the DFW airport. Bud enjoyed coaching Mike and Danny’s youth baseball, basketball and soccer teams, was an avid golfer playing weekly with coworkers, and enjoyed taking his family on ski vacations in the winter (where he won a NASTAR gold medal and was awarded the best time in his age group for the state of Texas). Upon his son Danny’s death from a brain tumor in 1999, Bud and Peggy along with Danny’s friends established an endowed scholarship at Texas A&M in Danny’s honor, which has provided over $100,000 in scholarships since its inception. In 2007, Bud and Peggy moved to Boise, Idaho, so that they could be close to their granddaughters, who he loved dearly. Bud faithfully carpooled them over many years to school, sports and extracurricular activities. He was the art volunteer at their school and helped Mike coach their soccer teams. A memorial service for Bud will be held at 10 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 14, at the Idaho Veterans’ Cemetery in Boise. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Danny Kenney Memorial Scholarship Fund, Department of Recreation Sports, Texas A&M University, 4250 TAMU, College Station, TX 77843-4250. The family would also like to thank the BrightStar memory care team and Keystone Hospice for the excellent care they provided to Bud.
