A true teacher, perhaps his disbelief in the leaving cert seemed like an inconvenience to us at times but now I see that his lessons were far more important than any exams we ever did. Gonzaga will never be the same. Rest easy Kenno, we really will miss you. Live the fourth.

There are no words to articulate Kennedy's loss. He was the heart of Gonzaga College SJ. His students always came first, they knew he was there for them. My sons are devastated. Rest in Peace. We will miss you.

Fr Kennedy made me feel very welcome when I came to the school and I always enjoyed talking with the man. Feeling privelaged to have been able to catch up with him 10 Years on at a reunion dinner at Christmas where he was in marvellous form. A total shock to hear of this tragic news. RIP kenno

A wonderful role model for the boys. He made it "ok" to be outside the rugby clique in the school. He encouraged ALL aspects of education and showed me as a parent how to respect my son's opinion and attitudes. The world is a poorer place without you Kennedy. RIP

Kennedy was the best teacher in Gonzaga College. The school will never be the same after this. He was iincredibly learned, great at teaching, and easy to approach. But above all, he was a good man.

goes far beyond what is expected of any teacher, educating the man not just the student. he was always there to offer advice where it was asked for, or just to listen if that was all you needed, a true gentleman.
