It is with profound sorrow that we must pass along news that Kevin Kennedy passed away peacefully October 23, 2020 surrounded by his family and leaves behind an incredible legacy of accomplishments, strength, courage and grace.

Kevin joined Arnold Lumber Company just shy of 30 years ago and has led the pack as the Top Salesman for the last 17 consecutive years. He worked with many suppliers, builders and contractors on both the mainland as well as Block Island selling building materials and fostering relationships that more often than not, translated into lifelong friendships. He was known among his friends, family and customer base as a strong headed, strong hearted person.

Besides all things construction, he was an avid sportsman who loved Snowmobiling, Hunting & Fishing, Riding and Shooting and thoroughly enjoyed sharing these passions with his remarkable and supportive wife, Janet; son, Ronnie and many close friends over the years. He was a member of the Ashaway Volunteer Fire Association and a well-known personality on Block Island. Please pass on your condolences to Janet and Kevin’s Family as we all share our Deepest Sympathies.

Due to current Covid19 restrictions, a memorial service will be scheduled for Kevin in 2021 to join with his friends and family to celebrate his incredible life and legacy. Please keep Kevin and the Kennedy family in your prayers.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Kevin’s name to the American Liver foundation:
