Local man requested to be taken to cemetery in his wagon


Shirley, left, and Scott Sheffer, both of Houston, drive their deceased friend Ed Kennedy, formerly of Hardin, down Hardin-Wapakoneta Road toward State Route 47 Tuesday, Dec. 1 and onward to Shelby Memory Gardens. One of Kennedy’s last requests was that he be taken to the cemetery in his wagon. Kennedy eventually sold the wagon and horses to the Sheffers when he became unable to care for them. Scott said “Ed was the ultimate of givers.” Shirley remembers how it was a tradition for Ed to take his family on a ride in the wagon every Christmas. Kennedy is survived by his wife Patsy Kennedy. Kennedy worked as a metal fabricator in Sidney for many years and was a Turtle Creek Township trustee. His obituary describes him as a “loving family man who cared deeply for his children, grand-children and great-grandchildren. Luke Gronneberg | Sidney Daily News
