  1. Sending prayers to Kay and the entire family. Bill was a great man. He was a loving friend to my father since high school. I loved seeing them together whenever he came to visit in Jacksonville. He will be missed my many. May his life be a blessing to his family and friends for generations to come. God Bless!

  2. From the first grade and to the end, I knew Bill McKenny was always the same kind, gentle and genuine human being. He felt comfortable in his own skin and was true to himself, defining the best traits of a man.

    Wherever we are now, we are better off because we were with Bill McKenny at some point in our life journey .

  3. Sending loving hugs to Kay, DeeAnn, Tim, Matt, Tara and families. Bill meant so very much to so many. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, and friend. His smile would light up any room and his kindness was felt by all who knew him. Bill had a way of making all feel welcomed and loved so we know he will be waiting for us with open arms when we meet again.

  4. Goodbye my friend. Sympathy Love and Prayers to Kay and your family. Until we meet again for a reunion God Bless

  5. Bill was a great man. I always enjoyed hearing him tell his stories when we were all together for a Letterman’s function. He will be missed.

  6. Bill is someone that you remember from High School (Landon/Jacksonville) because of who he was. The great football player, his smile, friendly to everyone. After all these years (1958) his classmates feel sad over his passing. His lovely wife Kay, became an instant friend to all of us. When we had our reunions, the guys would talk to Bill about the good ole days. We women would talk to Kay about food, well ok, mostly sweets. LOL. Kay, I hope you know how much we all love you and we could see how you were so good for Bill. I know you were his Angel that was there for him and we probably would have lost him sooner if it were not for his love for you. Prays and hugs to you and the entire family.

  7. Our hearts sank when we heard the news. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Kay, and the family. We love you, Jack and Donna

  8. The Man in the Arena. The Happy Warrior. A Natural Athlete. An Extraordinary Leader on and off the field. A Winner. Yet, very kind, caring and compassionate. Loved his wife Kay and his family dearly. This is how I will remember Bill. In 1951 in his first organized baseball game he pitched a no hit-perfect game. I was his catcher that day. I joked with him over the years that my calls and play in that game vaulted him into future stardom. This always got a laugh from him. He was one of a kind.
    My thoughts and prayers go out to Kay and the family.

  16. while I really only knew Bill and Kay for a short time they were a great couple, friendly warm and giving. I was saddened to know Bill had passed but I know he is walking with the angels in heaven and I pray he will look up my love Richard. They would make a great pair

  20. Bill was my hero. I appreciated Bill’s leadership and especially his friendship on the field and in the class room. May God bless and comfort Bill’s family.

  21. Bill and I have been friends from high school. A man could not ask for a better friend. We visited at my home, his mountain cabin. We keep in touch over the years, regardless of where life took us. He was a fine individual. Rest in peace my friend.

  22. Bill was like a brother to me. We survived the WW II years together, playing soldiers with Chuck his brother in their backyard. Our Mothers were sisters which established the relationship. Being in his company throughout the years always gave me a feeling of “goodness”. I am proud of his many accomplishments and always broadcast them to many of my friends. Bill was my “hero” in many ways.
    God Bless you, Bill McKenny.

  23. Bill was one of my favorite people. I’m so glad that he was a part of my life as a friend. He played a major role in the the person that I am today and I am so grateful to him for being the kind person that he was. My condolences to the entire family.

  24. Bill was the kind of person who immediately displayed so much compassion and kindness when you met him. He was like a brother to my husband John whom always considered Bill as family when his family opened their doors and hearts when he started at UG from Pa and knew no one. He will be missed but we can feel confident he is in the arms of our Lord

  25. Bill will be missed as he was like a brother to me. Over the 50 plus years that I knew him there were many fond memories. He was very much a family man. He loved talking about his beloved Georgia Bulldogs. My prayers go out to Kay and his family.
