  1. Please know how sorry I am about his passing. He and Margaret are together again. May they both rest in peace. Also, the thank you notice i got from your mom’s death is beautiful. I will treasure it always. Will also remember the Kenyon family in my prayers.

  2. Don was a Captain on the Inglewood (CA) Fire Department when I was hired in 1968. He was a wonderful guy who could do anything with tools. He was a firefighter role model in every way, and I consider myself very lucky to have known and worked with Don. My most sincere sympathies to the family. All who knew him will remember him always.

  3. My deepest sympathy to Donald’s family. My husband Richard C. Pfeiffer served with him for many years in the Inglewood Fire Dept. We even attended their wedding. He is in our prayers. Mrs. Richard C. Pfeiffer (Midge)

  4. Don was a wonderful man, a great husband, father, and grandfather. I was saddened to hear of his passing but know he is in a better place with Margaret and with God in heaven. My prayers and deepest sympathy go out to my cousins and the entire Kenyon family for their loss. Richard sends his love and sympathy. God bless you.

  5. We want to send a message of rememberance to the family. We lived in HollyPark and knew Don and his son, Ken, from St. Frances Cabrini,and when they participated in Cub Scouts. We will make sure this info is sent to our 2 sons, Ron and Bill. We are sorry for you losing your Dad.

  6. Dear Kenyon family, Very sorry to hear of your dad’s passing so soon after your mom’s! I realize that they are together now, but I know how hard it will be for your family to have them both gone. You are in my prayers! Frances Martin
