Funeral: 10 a.m. Friday in the sanctuary of First United Methodist Church, 1122 Bryant St, Benbrook. Visitation: 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Winscott Road Funeral Home, 1001 Winscott Road, Benbrook.
James was born April 30, 1974, in Wichita, Kan., the baby of two children to Stephen N. and Barbara Kennedy. “The greatest man I ever knew” is how James has been described by many who knew him. He was generous to a fault and whatever he had he gave. He loved video games and was very involved with the trading card game, Magic, especially with his son, Isaiah.
James feared, respected and loved the Lord and was very involved in church. But his greatest involvement was his three children and his passion was a 12 step fellowship. On Oct. 17, 2005, he really began to live and help other suffering addicts find a new way to live. Later in life, he earned an Associate Degree in English from TCC and influenced his professors so much that he was asked to speak to classes and tutor students. James was a member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society.
Children, Savannah, Isaiah, and Sunshine Kennedy of Benbrook; parents, Stephen N. and Barbara Kennedy of Oklahoma City, Okla.; sister, Mary Kennedy of Austin; dear friends and great influences, Jeff Marshall, Charles Williams, Wes Selman, Bobby “Peaches” McClendon, and Brad Edminston; and a host of friends who loved him like family.
