Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
William Walker Kennard was born in Mobile, Alabama on August 1, 1943 and died in Ashland, Missouri on January 25, 2021. He was the middle of three adopted children, and loved to tell the dramatic story of how that particular family was formed. Bill was a life-long Episcopalian and a life-long educator. He will be remembered for his kind spirit, sense of humor, love of family, and unique laugh. His pride in the up and coming generations of his family knew no bounds and were his greatest joy.

He is survived by his wife, Susan, daughter and son in law Sarah and Colin, grandchildren Will and Ashley, niece Cara and her husband Matt, great nieces Charlee and Qwinn, nephew Lee, and numerous beloved relations and friends.
