William Kenia of Jefferson Twp, PA Obituary

William A. Kenia, who resided in Jefferson Twp. and passed away on October 31, 2022 at the age of 78, was able to pass away peacefully in the environment of his own house. His wife of 56 years, Linda Zingaretti Kenia, is the only person he leaves behind after he passes away.

On March 5, 1944, he was born to Stanley Kenia and Sophie Galushka, who both departed away prior to the arrival of their son. He was their son. In 1962, William completed his secondary education at Newton-Ransom and graduated with his high school diploma.

Both a farm and a horse stable could be found on the property that he and his wife shared in the community of Newton-Ransom. Taking care of his yard and garden, going horseback riding, and playing at casinos were all activities that brought him pleasure. He treasured the opportunities he had to spend time with the people he cared about, and he looked forward to the vacations that his family enjoyed at Rocking Horse Ranch on an annual basis.

Both he and his wife were snowbirds, thus they spent all 22 of their winters in Bradenton, which is located in Florida. He was a standout player in the men’s softball league that took place in Bradenton, and it was there that the league was held.

William was also known by the highly peculiar name “Putt-Putt,” which was conferred upon him by his descendants in the form of his grandchildren. Putt-Putt was one of William’s nicknames during his lifetime.

His wife, his son William Kenia, his daughter Karen Andrews and her husband Bob, his grandson Mason Kenia and his wife Megan, and his granddaughter Caitlin Andrews are the only members of his family who have survived his passing.

His daughter-in-law, Sherry Kenia, had already passed away before he did. She was the one who came before him.

The memorial service will be held at the family’s discretion, and they ask that their privacy be respected during this time.

Sheldon-Kukuchka Funeral Home Inc., which can be found at 73 West Tioga Street in Tunkhannock, Pennsylvania 18657, has been given the job of making arrangements and providing care for the deceased person.
