Growing up in Yarmouth in the late 60’s, early 70’s we were neighbors of Walter, Frances and Kenny - the kindness, nicest people who would do anything in the world for you. My youngest brother was like a brother to Kenny during those years til he moved to BC. Kenny always had a smile and chuckle for everyone. You will surely be missed by all your family and friends. 💔 RIP - Linda (Bustin) McComiskey

Deepest condolences to Kenny's family and friends. Kenny was a kind, caring, and dedicated person. Our paths at ASL only crossed occasionally, but my favourite memory is when we carpooled on a Harvester recruitment trip to Cape Breton, and together we demolished an entire bag of peppermints. He will be sorely missed at Acadian, though I know we all will cherish our happy memories with him.
