Quintella and Dee Kennedy and loving husband of 50 years to Judi Kennedy, passed away

born in 1942 in Vallejo California, graduated from Vallejo High School in 1960 and The
California Maritime Academy in 1964. As a Merchant Marine, he worked in shipyards around
the world and sailed on many ships throughout his career. After his family, Mike’s passion was
baseball, he played throughout his childhood and early adulthood, turning that passion into
coaching for over 20 years. He coached every age group taking his teams to All-Stars and
Championships multiple times. When retiring in 2010 Mike turned his vacation home in
Chiwawa River Pines, near Plain WA into his full time home, where he became actively
involved in the Lake Wenatchee community. Nothing made him happier than feeding his birds,
riding his tractor and smoking a cigar on his porch. His winter passions included snowmobiling
and sitting at his fire-pit watching it snow. Mike was an avid Nascar fan, and looked forward to
his trips to the track with his boys every year.
