James Kenniston

April 25, 1923 ~ October 31, 2020 (age 97)


James Kenniston was born on April 25, 1923 in San Diego, Ca. He was the last of 18 children.

James is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Loraine and Raul Posada; son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Mia Kenniston, 8 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren.

James was a decorated veteran of the Second World War.

A 30-year Mason of the San Diego Unity Lodge #632, he served as Tyler until retirement and maintained close friendships with both his fellow-Masons and friends involved in the Veterans of Foreign Wars organization.

His partner in life, Anna, was the foundation of the family. James was the roof – constructed tile by tile as he built the family thriving today. James’ love, support, and endearing wit covered everyone with warmth. He gave his heart to his family for 3 years on his own, leaving this world to tell his stories and dance with Anna in the clouds. He will be greatly missed.
