Dear friend


Though it has been many years since we've seen each other, my memories of our childhood in the neighborhood remain vivid. In particular I remember our endless pickup baseball games in summer and football in the fall, with you and me and my brother Dave and your brother Ozzie -- and sometimes your big sister Ginger -- which always lasted until our mother called us home for dinner across the valley. I remember the time your broke your nose after colliding with another player. I remember our learning to operate a stick shift on your mom's white Ford Falcon. I remember our friendly debates about our religious beliefs. Most of all, I remember your humor, your loyalty, and the strength of your character -- qualities you obviously carried throughout your life. How quickly it all went. Godspeed, dear Wynn.

As your student, you gave me a second chance during a trying time in my life.  You were a loving, caring man, who in our brief time together touched my life.  Rest in peace Good Sir. 


P.S You were probably the only the only teacher to ever be able to rouse my interest that early in the morning!

Ginny,


Our family has been in prayer for yours. We have always had great respect for Wynn and have such joyful memories of his laugh! I pray that the Lord will comfort you with His gracious mercy and that you will see His love in tangible ways in the coming months.

Dear Ginny and family,
You are in our thoughts and prayers in a special way today. Wish I could be there today to show my appreciation for Dr. Kenyon personally. We will continue to pray for you in the next days and weeks.  May God give you peace and comfort beyond your understanding and circumstances.  May you feel secure in his care.
Hugs,Lisa and family

I am definitely not as holy as everyone else because when I read people write that they are rejoicing because his laugh is heard in heaven, it just makes me angry.  
I don't want his laugh in heaven.  I want him back.  It is the first time in my life that I will truly have to wrestle with why the Lord would take someone.  No one bore more genuine fruits.  No one combined such rare intellectual talents with humility, openness, love, affection, loyalty etc.
Even as he was so careful with words and terms, I feel that all good words fail now. No words will be able to wrap their arms around the man that he was.
I am so grateful for his friendship, for his verbal blessings on me and for all the wisdom I gained from his patient teaching. 
Brian and I will always remember him and miss him deeply.

Love to all the family,Katharine (Krepper) Savage

Dear Ginny, Michael and family,

Please accept my family's sincerest condolecens on the loss of Wynn. I thank my God I have had Wynn and you in my life. When Esther, my first daughter, was in Belhaven, both of you are the best teachers, friends and parents for the little girl.  I cannot imagine Belhaven without Wynn. We remember Wynn and you in our prayers. We do love you.

in His grace,

Paul Chang

Wynn has been a great encouragement to my family over the past years. He invested valuable time into mentoring people, of which Lavon was one of them. Wynn was very encouraging with his faith and commitment to family. For this I praise God for godley men as he. God bless the Kenyons!

Dear Ginny, Stephen, Michael and family,


Ed and I are deeply saddened to hear the news about Wynn. Seeing you all when you come to Ligonier in December each year has been a real treat for us.  Reading the guest book tells what a fine, godly, highly respected man Wynn was.  What I remember most happened about eight years ago when we were first introduced to you.  I was watching young 12 month old Jake Kenyon crawl around on the camp dining hall floor when he suddenly appeared under a table.  I asked "Jake, who's under there with you?" and he looked beside him, then to me, and said "ca-ca 'ynn" (Uncle Wynn). This delighted Wynn,so there was a loud "HA!"  It was not beneath Wynn to crawl on the floor with a toddler, or chase young, giggling neices and nephews around a room to express his love.  Wynn will be greatly missed.  With much love and many prayers,

I would just like to support the family with many prayers and to say that I know he will be missed. When you meet such a unique individual like him, it is hard to not notice the impact he has on others. He has certainly made one on me and my family. I am one who perfers to not be noticed on campus but the small conversations we had about family and God will always stay with me because they made me feel like God has a purpose for me. He encouraged me to build my relationships with God, my husband and children and to continue on in my education of our Lord and our purpose here. He truly was a servant of God though his many talents.

Dear Ginny and Kenyon family,

I was so very saddened to hear the news about Dr. K.  At the same time I was flooded with such warm memories of spending time with the both of you during my time at Belhaven.  You and Dr. K. opened up your home and hearts to so many of us and became family to us all.  I'll always remember the wonderful times spent with you all outside of the classroom and will never, ever forget his smile or his "HA!"

My prayers go out to you all at this very sad time   
 May God's love comfort you all

Love,                                                                                                 Bon Bon

Dear dear Ginny,

What incredibly difficult news I just received.  David McNair was kind enough to write me about your dear Wynn.  As you know, my only memories of him are from what you have told me on the phone and from pictures -- and now from the heartfelt messages of those who write here and on the Belhaven website.

Please know that our hearts go out especially to you, Amy, Stephen and Michael and and all your family.  Wynn was obviously an extraordinary man who will be sorely missed.  I wish I 'd had the privilege of knowing him.  Knowing you, my dear friend, you chose the best.

Pete and I expect to deliver our love first-hand on Saturday.

May the perfect peace of God, which passeth ALL understanding, be yours -- and keep your hearts and minds through our Lord Christ Jesus.

Love from deep down, Ginny,
Karen

Erv Martin and I ran into Wynn on campus about 3:30pm last Wednesday.Wynn asked Erv how old he was, and Erv said he was 65. Wynn asked Erv if he was planning to retire, and he replied he wasn't done yet. "Me neither"replied Wynn, " I don't think retirement is for me".


I never talked to Wynn again. He was doing what he loved to do right up to the end. We will miss you old friend. You were a great teacher to your colleagues as well as your students.
