Obituary of Michael Kilkenny
Peacefully, with his loving family at his side, Michael “Killer” Kilkenny passed away on Thursday, June 28th 2018. A major league baseball player, professional golfer, instructor and a one of a kind, all around great guy has left this earth but not before leaving behind an amazing legacy of love and sportsmanship.
Loving husband and soul mate of Edie. Dear father of Rory (Sandra and daughter, Kyrie); Dawn (Jon) and grandchildren, Ben, Liam, Maddie, Andrew and Ian and step-father of Danny (Liz) and grandchildren Cameron and Andrew. Survived by his brother, Peter (Fran).
Mike achieved many accomplishments throughout his storied professional career in sports, but being a wonderful husband, father and grandfather was his greatest statistic.
Friends are welcome to join Mike’s family at a Memorial Gathering at the St. Thomas Golf Club, 42325 Sparta Line, Union, on Sunday, July 22nd from 2-5 p.m. with words of remembrance being shared at 3 p.m.
If desired, memorial contributions to Dr. Michael Ott at Victoria Hospital, London for Colorectal Cancer Research would be appreciated as your expression of sympathy.
