Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 1, 1937
Death: Apr. 29, 2005

Ed Kinney first arrived in Pleasanton, California in 1968. In 1972, "Smilin' Ed" Kinney, with the smiley face as his campaign symbol, ran for and won a seat on the Pleasanton city council and later was elected the city's mayor. He soon earned the nickname of "Mr. Parade" because of his many years announcing various parades which were held in Pleasanton. Kinney also spent many years working as a realtor Hometown GMAC Real Estate. In November 2004, Kinney survived an aortic aneurysm, the same condition which killed his father and two brothers. Around the same time, he was diagnosed with cancer and passed away on April 29, 2005.
