Kenwyn E. Ward, 59, died on May 29th, 2018 doing what he loved, working.
Kenwyn was born on April 28th, 1959 to Grace and Mervyn Ward in Arima, Trinidad.
He attended Queen’s Royal College, Port of Spain. He continued his education at the University of the West Indies studying building construction.
Kenwyn was a jack of all trades. He worked with his hands in the home improvement industry but mastered his craft as a chimney sweep.
He worked in his early career at Consol in Trinidad. During the past twenty years while living in Maryland, he worked with Victorian Chimney and spent many memorable years at National Chimney Supply. Most recently he worked for 2 Hat’s Chimney and Ducts.
Kenwyn enjoyed playing and watching basketball and was following the NBA finals closely. He also loved the beach. He enjoyed playing card games and the occasional casino.
Most of all he was a family man!
He is survived by his wife, Carol; former wife Publiana; children, step-children and their spouses, Sommer (Latoya), Stacy and Pete Charlerie, Mikhail and Isedria Ward, Kayana Guerra, Fayanne and Marvin Baggoo; brothers and their spouses, Keith, Robert and Mavis, Jeffrey and Maureen, Gregory and Listra, Anthony and Lorna Ward; sister and brother-in-law, Kathleen and Ray Edwards ; grandchildren, Triston Meaghan, Jada, Josiah, Saniyah, Justin, Mariyah, Eric, Jonathan and one more grandson on the way, special nephew Leon plus 36 more nieces and nephews; many cousins and friends.
Kenwyn was predeceased by his mother, Grace, father Mervyn and brother Mervyn Jr. Ward.
His legacy will live on forever.
In memory of my brother Kenwyn :
At a glance one may see
A handsome man
A quiet man
A simple man
A hard-working man
but the true measure of this man
Is not seen in a glance
This solid rock
This corner stone
This constant support
This leader of the pack
This protector of his own
This sounding board
This selfless act,
This is the man that we have known.
The true measure of this man runs deeper than that a passing glance.
