Byron Andrew Kennett died from complications arising from surgery for esophigal cancer, which is directly attributed to smoking in White River Junction, VT on September 4, 1992. He was born in Bakersfield, VT on June 17, 1921; the son of Andrew and Grace (Tevyah) Kennett.
Byron was a veteran of US Army Air Corps and served during WWII.
He had a grand sense of humor, and is remembered for his unique language, which was a mix of yankee dialect with a few french/canadian words and phrases thrown in along with a few made-up words. He was also known for always bringing home "strays": dogs, cats and people.
On February 22, 1947 he married Marjorie Raymond.
He is survived by his wife, four brothers: Gordon, Frances, Leslie and Alexander and two sisters: Glenna Parker and Wilma Schofield Russell. In addition, he is survived by six children: daughter, Arlene and sons: William (Bill); Maurice (Moe); Larry, Arnold (Arnie) and Peter.
Burial is in the Vermont Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Randolph Center, VT.
