Kevin Lee Hennigan passed away doing what he loved most, helping his two boys, Daniel and Bryan, reach their dreams. He proudly and enthusiastically supported his sons as Daniel went on to play baseball for five years professionally, including time with the Los Angeles Dodgers. Despite being undersized, Daniel credits his father’s competitiveness, support, and belief that he would succeed as to how he was able to achieve his eventual level of play. Kevin’s pride in his youngest son, Bryan, receiving his degree was a major talking point of 2020 as anyone within earshot heard about the achievement. Watching Bryan succeed as a fiery pitcher against high-level competition was admittedly Kevin’s favorite viewing entertainment of all. Kevin was thrilled to travel to Ireland in 2019 to share the celebration of Daniel’s marriage to Luighsighe, a daughter-in-law that he grew incredibly close to as they constantly teased one another.
Kevin and his wife Linda shared 38 beautiful years, residing in Downingtown for the last 30. They shared constant laughter as Kevin’s non-stop jokes always seemed to land with the person he loved most. He is survived by his mother, Saundra, and his 4 sisters - Karen Thompson (Ken), Kim Collins (Jack Pyanowski), Karyl Claroni (David Kiscadden), Kelly Campbell (Dan), and brother in law, Alex Lelli (Janet) and 11 nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his dad, Donald.
Kevin was an artist, a graphic designer, he built a house for his sister, he managed his parents gas stations and 7-Eleven in Penbrook for several years in the 1980s, he managed the Hertz rental facility at the PHL airport, owned a car servicing garage, serviced machinery for large factories, and tuned his BMW M3 he affectionately named Wucka. His family and friends will dearly miss him and his witty jokes will still be heard in the hearts and minds of those that knew him and loved him.
