d. July 15, 2023

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” 
Revelation 21:4 

Mr. David Kennedy, the son of the late James Kennedy and the late Dorothy Gilbert Kennedy was born September 25, 1960 in Florence, South Carolina. On Saturday, July 15, 2023, he departed his life after an illness. 

David well known as “Tiny Weenie” attended the Public Schools of Florence County and was employed as a Assembly Worker at La-Z-Boy Furniture for many years. He later became a self-employed Carpenter.
