David Arnold Kennedy
August 18, 1947 – July 5, 2019
It is with great sorrow that we announce the unexpected and sudden passing of David on Friday, July 5, 2019. He leaves to mourn his wife Silvia Visintin, his brothers Greg, Tim (Aimee), Robert, John (Donna), his sisters Susan and Mary Jane (Blake Lefort). his nephews Derek, Landon, and Taylor Kennedy, Reilly Lefort, Leo and Alexander Visintin, his nieces Lindsay Sullivan (Joe), Hilary Lefort, Hailey Kennedy and Emma Visintin, brother- in -law Bruno Visintin (Paulette), mother- in- law Laura Visintin, special friend Adam (Tara) as well as many cousins, extended family and very good friends in Ottawa and Winnipeg.
He was predeceased by his parents Anne and Leo Kennedy, his brother Charles (Chuck), and his father- in- law Romeo Visintin.
David was born in Ottawa the first of eight children born to Anne and Leo Kennedy. He grew up in a loving, large extended family of many uncles, aunts and cousins.
David was free- spirited and adventurous. He lived in Florida for a brief time and in Calgary for seven years. In 1984 with best buddy, Don Lewis he ended up in Winnipeg. He started a new career and in October of 1984 he met Silvia cementing Winnipeg as his home. They were married in 1988.
David worked at Standard Aero for 24 years retiring in 2010. Retirement years were spent organizing golf games in the summer, trips to warm places including his annual golf trip to San Antonio with his buddies, and just relaxing at home. He loved sports and was an enthusiastic fan of football, baseball and the Winnipeg Jets. If he wasn`t golfing, fishing or watching sports he would be reading.
David was a good listener and it made him a great friend. He had a joyous laugh that came from his heart. He enjoyed family and friends gatherings with a good glass of something in his hand. He was loyal and cared about the friends he had made along the way. He was a caring and supportive husband and patient when Silvia would rattle on in Italian with her mother without providing any translations which occurred often.
The family will receive condolences at 10:00 am followed by Mass of the Resurrection on Thursday, July 11, 2019 at 11:00 am at Holy Rosary Roman Catholic Church, 510 River Avenue, Rev Father Sam Argenziano presiding. As per David`s wishes he will be cremated and his remains laid to rest at a later date.
Pallbearers will be John and Tim Kennedy, Blake Lefort, Bruno Visintin, Donald Lewis and Rob Smith
In lieu of flowers donations in David`s memory can be made to Cancer Care Manitoba 675 Mc Dermot Ave. Winnipeg MB R3E 0V9 or a charity of one`s choice.

Our condolences to the family of Dave Kennedy. We were co-workers at Standard aero for approx. 20 years and thoroughly enjoyed Dave's sense of humour and everyday attitude. He will be missed by his many friends. Sorry we are unable to attend.

Dear Sylvia and Kennedy clan, my most sincere condolences for the loss of Dave. I’ll always remember him standing around the Smith’s garage in the summertime with a drink in his hand laughing at something someone was saying. He was a lovely person, who will be missed by all. Kathleen Smith

Although David moved from Ottawa many years ago first to Calgary and then to Winnipeg, I always remember the good times we had here in Ottawa. I will miss you David. RIP

My wife and i met Dave on one of his golf trips to San Antonio years ago and we looked for April to arrive so we can meet with the golf guys from Canada. April will never be the same we will miss you!

Due to a family event, I am unable to attend Dave's service. I wish I could be there.

I worked with Dave for many years at Standard Aero. Together, we re-purposed buildings and implemented dozens of cell designs. None of those cells would have been possible without Dave and his ever-so-capable crew and subcontractors. When I retired 11 years ago, Dave gave me a mounted window in a frame in memory of our redesign adventures. That window is still proudly on display in my home. I will miss Dave. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.
