Obituary

Francis "Dusty" V. Kenney, Jr., age 70, of Republic, PA passed away on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, surrounded by his family. In keeping with his true sense of humor, he was telling jokes and stories, with an ornery grin, until the end. He was born on May 28, 1951 in Brownsville, PA, son of the late Francis V. Kenney, Sr. and Mary Louise (Marucci) Kenney.

Dusty was retired from CSX Railroad.  He was an outdoorsman who enjoyed hunting and was an avid fisherman. His favorite place to fish was Pymatuning Lake with his cousins.

Besides his parents, Dusty was preceded in death by his son, Dustin Vincent Kenney; sister and brother-in-law, Polly Ann and Ronald Hustak.

Left to cherish his memory is his wife of 48 years, Veronica "Ronnie" (Skakandy) Kenney; daughter, Nicole and husband Jeff Buchheit; grandchildren, Ava Kenney, Hunter Umbel, Haleigh and Hanna Buchheit; niece, Pamela Williams and husband Ricky.

Friends will be received in The Dearth Funeral Home, 35 South Mill Street, New Salem, PA on Sunday, May 22, 2022 from 2-4 PM and 6-8 PM, and on Monday from 11:30 AM until Prayer Service at 12:15 PM.  A Funeral Mass will be held at 1 PM in The Historic Church of St. Peter, Brownsville, with Rev.
