Obituary of Warren Charles Kennedy

Kennedy, Warren Charles, Ph.D, Feura Bush, passed peacefully from this life May 5, 2020 at St. Peter’s Hospice. Born in Pittsburgh, PA Christmas Day, 1941 to Charles Edward Kennedy and Seda Catherine Shalamunec, he was a curious man with diverse academic interests and acumen from astronomy to submarine sound suppression. He was predeceased by his wife Karen (Rothaupt) and his brother David Kennedy and survived by David’s wife Barbara in South Carolina and their family and his brother Jack Kennedy and family in Pittsburgh. Warren earned his BS at the University of Pittsburgh, his MS at Carnegie Institute of Technology and his PH.D. at Carnegie Mellon University, all in Mechanical Engineering. His career path included academic posts at Union College and RPI, scientific posts at Westinghouse Laboratories, civilian-military at Electric Boat, and governmental assignments at NYS Department of Transportation, from which he retired in 2016. An avid reader and musician, Warren composed and arranged music and participated as a Tuba and Euphonium player in several community ensembles giving local concerts and providing entertainment to senior and nursing facilities. Internment at Bethlehem Cemetery and a memorial will be private. The gentle and loving care by Teresian House and St. Peter’s Hospital staff was appreciated. Those seeking to share a memorial for Warren are encouraged to plant a tree and look skyward.
