Mark Allen Kennedy, 55, of Williams Mountain, WV passed away on Monday, September 13, 2021 due to a short illness.
He was a man that will always be remembered as an irreplaceable father, son, husband, grandfather, brother, cousin, nephew, friend, teacher, mentor, and coach. He had a true passion for sports, especially football, and more importantly helping/watching his children and pupils succeed. He is known for his vivacious sense of humor and every single person that ever met him has a funny story or joke to remember.
He is survived by his parents, Glenn and Linda Kennedy of Quick; his wife, Sarah Kennedy of Williams Mountain; his children, Megan Kennedy (Teresa Samuels) of Logan, Christopher “Bub” Kennedy (Jacklynn) of Eleanor, Tyler Kennedy (Morgan) of Nitro, Hallie Halley (Chris) of Uneeda, Chris Kennedy of Eleanor, J.T.
