KANE [Fall River MA Herald News, Sunday 25 Feb 2007] John F. Kane, former mayor of Fall River, died Saturday at St. Patrick's Manor in Framingham after a brief illness. He was 93 years old. He was the husband of the late Mary M. (Leddy) Kane. Born in Fall River, son of the late James and the late Ann (Mulligan) Kane, he resided in Framingham for the past seven years, previously living in Fall River and Yarmouthport. Mr. Kane served as mayor of Fall River from 1952 to 1958. He is probably best remembered for his first run for the office, which resulted in a one-vote margin of victory for the incumbent, William P. Grant. The original count of votes in November 1951 had Mr. Kane the winner by eight votes, but an extended recount showed Mr. Grant the winner by a single vote. In March 1952, the state Supreme Judicial Court, after eight weeks of deliberations, unanimously declared Mr. Kane the winner by 30 votes. "The Supreme Court has made the decision that I have been expecting," he stated. "There have been times during this long period when it has been discouraging and frustrating. However, in such times we find ourselves saying, 'That's democracy, and that's the way it has to work for the good of all.'" The major issue during the campaign was the development of new industry. "I renew my invitation to you all to join with me in a real effort to make more jobs for Fall River people," he told the citizenry. "With a strong desire to perform well, and with the assistance of God, we can move forward toward a better and more prosperous Fall River." Shortly after taking office, Mr. Kane ordered the acting police chief to rid the city of bookies and gamblers. "If there are bookies here, it is the job of the police chief to drive them out," he said. After his mayoral service, he served as U.S. property and fiscal officer for the commonwealth for 16 years. A World War II Army veteran, Mr. Kane retired as a brigadier general. An inventor, accomplished pianist and songwriter, he also enjoyed golf and was a member of the Artillery Veterans Association.

KEHOE [Providence RI Journal, Wednesday 19 March 2003] Glocester - Graham B. Kehoe, 10, of Evans Road, died Sunday at home after a lifelong battle with Niemann-Pick disease, an extremely rare genetic disorder affecting the body's metabolism. Born in Providence, a son of Kevin C. Kehoe and Rhonda Brown-Kehoe, he was a lifelong resident of Glocester. Graham began his life with a fight to survive. By the age of seven months, he had been diagnosed with NPD. The disease causes choking and swallowing difficulties, complete neuromuscular degeneration, and sometimes dementia and loss of speech. He was one of only two children in Rhode Island to have been diagnosed with the disease. Known for his elflike grin, Graham was a nonstop, curious child who developed in his own way. Family members say he skipped the usual stages, and mastered various behaviors and activities that were deemed "impossible" for his age. He started to read and write long before kindergarten. He could whistle, snap his fingers, and remember songs and stories after hearing them only once. His smile and giggle were infectious. A wheelchair became necessary, and he did that in style. He chose one in hot purple, his favorite color; you could pick him out of a crowd. Graham attended the Fogarty Memorial School. He loved Scooby Doo, Zooboomafoo, Jimmy Neutron and balloons. He also enjoyed playing in his family's backyard pool. He loved nature and never wanted to see anything die or suffer. Graham celebrated his 10th birthday at Hasbro Children's Hospital. His window was marked with a neon-green sign, on which a huge smiling face and hello from Graham could be seen from Dudley and Eddy Streets. A spiritual person, he was a communicant and member of St. Thomas Episcopal Church, in the Greenville section of Smithfield. Besides his parents, he leaves a brother, Connor Kehoe of Glocester; three aunts, Marty Brown of Chepachet, Diane Griffin in Michigan and Joan Zahnizer of Rochester, N.Y.; an uncle, Scott E. Crossley in South Carolina; and several other aunts and uncles. A requiem Eucharist will be celebrated on Friday at 11 a.m. in St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Putnam Avenue, Smithfield. Graham asks that people either wear purple or dress in bright colors for his funeral service.

KELLY [Providence RI Journal, Tuesday 16 May 2006] Kelly, SSGT Dale James Jr., 48, Richmond, ME, heroically lost his life in battle in Iraq on May 6, 2006, after his convoy was hit by an Improvised Explosive Device. Dale has gone to sit at the feet of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He was born to Barbara (Fitzpatrick) and Dale James Kelly on November 30, 1957 in Stutgart, Germany where his father was serving in the Army. Shortly after graduating from Cranston High School, he joined the Rhode Island Air National Guard 143 Tactical Airlift Group as a Loadmaster. While serving the first nine years of his military career, he met and married his soulmate, Nancy Cabral, also a member of the 143rd Tactical Airlift Group. They were married on December 20, 1980 at the Church of the Transfiguration in Cranston, R.I. They renewed their vows and everlasting love at their 25th wedding anniversary on December 17, 2005, shortly before his deployment to Iraq. Dale a faithful and loving husband, devoted father, brother, son and nephew, spiritual leader and leader of men, will be remembered most for his uncanny ability to use humor as a tool through all difficult situations and his willingness to rise to any occasion God placed before him. He navigated his way through life's hardships burying a son, a father, two grandfathers and two grandmothers, as well as all of the day to day hardships of living a humble middle-class life. He lived life one day at a time and would always start his morning with a prayer that God would direct his thoughts and actions. Every life he touched from the scouting world, to the work environment at BIW, to his church, St. Paul's in Brunswick, to the Recovery Community, to the soldiers he served with in two states and two branches of the armed forces, and to his family, friends and neighbors, all were enriched by his presence.

He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and friend and he will be loved and missed forever. Fred is the son of the late Patrick Joseph and Helena (Lee) Kelly, and brother of the late Francis Lee and Patrick Joseph Kelly, Jr. A lifelong resident of Cumberland, Fred was born at his family home on Mendon Road, formerly the Cumberland Hill Inn, which was run by his mother, an exceptional cook and hostess and lived there for nearly 60 years. He graduated from Cumberland High School in 1947. He wanted to be a veterinarian, but circumstances at the time prevented him from doing so. He worked for Nelson Trucking for 27 years, and then Forte Brothers Construction until he retired in 1988 to pursue a new career as a constable for the Rhode Island court system. His first love was spending time with his family and friends, but he also enjoyed woodworking, gardening, and tinkering around his house and property. An accomplished handyman with an affection for duct tape, Fred spent countless hours working in his garage, barn, and basement. Within his family, Fred was famous for his hours-long trips to Vose Hardware store located across the street from his house on Mendon Road. His father was a sulkie racer and horse trainer and Fred shared with him a lifelong love of horses. At his Mendon Road home, Fred and his family kept, cared for, and enjoyed riding a number of horses, including his eldest son's beloved Shetland pony, Poncho, who was a member of the Kelly family for nearly 30 years. Fred married his high school sweetheart, Lucy Forte, and they shared a loving and enduring partnership for 56 years. The couple had four children together and built a happy, loving, and welcoming home for friends and family alike. In 1987, they sadly sold Fred's family homestead to move a mile down the road onto Nate Whipple Highway. Not one to take the easy way out, Fred masterminded the moving and remodeling of the Kelly's former neighbor's house - that of 'Old John' McLaughlin - instead of buying a new house. The four-plus hour video tape of the move entertained visitors to the Kelly's new house for many years. Fred lived in his old friend's house on Nate Whipple Highway until his death. Fred is survived by his eternal sweetheart, Lucy, and his four children and their spouses, Michael and Patti Kelly, Fred Jr. and Alicia Kelly, Mary (Kelly) and Steven Nawrocki, and Frances (Kelly) and Thomas Wilber. He is also survived by his adoring grandchildren, Kaitlin, Michael, Caroline, Freddy, Tommy, Andrea, Colin and a soon-to-be-born Baby Nawrocki with whom he shared his love and gift for storytelling. Mass of Christian Burial will he held on Friday, September 14th at 10:00 A.M. at St. Joseph's Church, Mendon Road, Cumberland. The burial will be private.

KENNEDY (FLANAGAN) [New Bedford MA Standard Times, Friday 17 August 2007] Fairhaven — Lillian Agnes (Flanagan) Kennedy, 88, affectionately known as "Ma" Kennedy, died Tuesday August 14, 2007, at Our Lady's Haven after a long full life. While being very shy and warm, she could also laugh at almost anything. Both intelligence and creativity marked her spirit that had an April fools flair for practical jokes. Although she was known more through her eleven children whose visibility in the community of New Bedford spans 50 years, her life was highlighted by achievements long before she moved to New Bedford from Winthrop and married Mortimer Downing Kennedy of the South End. After being married in 1946, she bore 11 children within 13 years and then her husband passed away suddenly at the age of 47. Before coming to New Bedford, she had graduated at the top of her class in Winthrop and moved to Washington, D.C. to work. She was employed as the first female U.S. War Bond Officer and later worked at Harvard Law School. At the age of 28 she had her first child. From the early 1960s, she worked to raise her kids only on Social Security and the kindness of relatives and friends, returning to office work in the late 1970s. She was an active member of the Legion of Mary for many years. During the late 1950s, she and her husband worked with a small group of secular people to establish Bishop Stang High School, the school from which all 11 children graduated. At the last Kennedy commencement in 1978, she was presented by the school administration with a dozen roses for the accomplishment of her entire family graduating. She believed that faith was the greatest gift and self-sacrifice was the greatest good. In a self-centered materialistic world, she was very rare. The earth has lost a beautiful simple soul. Her children in order of birth are the late Kathleen Kennedy of New Bedford, Maureen Otis of Dartmouth and her husband Edmund, Daniel Kennedy of Yarmouthport and his wife Patty, David Kennedy of Edinburg, TX and his wife Ana, Teresa Kennedy Daigle of Fairhaven and her husband Norman, Thomas A. Kennedy of New Bedford, Joseph Kennedy of Fairhaven and his wife Susie, Mary Grace Kennedy of New Bedford, Margaret Kennedy of New Bedford, Annie Kennedy Phelps of Kennebunkport, ME and her husband Michael, and Patty Kennedy of New Bedford. She is also survived by her sister, Ruth Soares and her brother Charles Flanagan, both of Winthrop; nine grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and countless nieces and nephews. She was also the sister of the late Helen Gilbert. With all her humility, her shyness, and undying faith in God, her family invites relatives and friends to celebrate her life with them at the Saunders-Dwyer Home for Funerals, 495 Park St., New Bedford on Sunday from 2-7 PM, and her Mass of Christian Burial at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish at St. James Church, 233 County St., New Bedford on Monday at 11 AM. Although not necessary, the family knows that some people may wish to send flowers. Please know that the family is hoping to keep with the theme of "white daisies", or white flowers only. Remembrances in her name may be made to Our Lady's Haven, 71 Center St., Fairhaven, MA 02719.
