Matthew Bryan Kennedy

March 12, 1983 ~ November 18, 2021 (age 38)


Matthew Bryan Kennedy was born March 12, 1983 in New York City, New York. During his early years in Manhattan, Matthew received his Christian foundation attending a Christian  Academy. Through that attendance he would be seen having bible study with his grandmother, the late Dorothy L. Hawkins.  

Matthew spent his adolescent years on Long Island, New York where he graduated from Central Islip High School, 2000. Matthew was known to be a tireless worker at places of employment. He always tried to help people and would give the shirt off his back when at times required more of him to assist.

For an outlet of enjoyment, Matthew loved watching and cheering on America’s team, the Dallas Cowboys. His fandom led him to put on a Cowboys hat when his favorite team played. Just as passionate, he enjoyed viewing NASCAR, the warmth of animals and good ole cheeseburgers.

Matthew leaves to mourn his daughter, Liyah Bryana Kennedy; mother, Robyn P. Bass(Leon); father Kenneth E. Kennedy; brother Marc D. Kennedy(Sarah); nephew, Phoenix C. Kennedy; sister, Maryah N. Nasir, and a host of relatives and friends.
