His Legacy… Richard Bruce McKenney, 71, passed away January 13, 2024.  He was born on November 10, 1952, in West Chester, Pennsylvania, to Dr. Robert McKenney and Dorothy (Grover) McKenney. Richard married the love of his life, Susan Hall, on September 22, 1979, in Whitmore Lake, Michigan. They enjoyed 44 wonderful years together. Richard spent most of his career at Industrial Resin Recycling. He was a hard worker, and was still working 3 days a week. Richard was an amazing family man and incredibly present in his children’s lives. He built two homes for his family in Hamburg Township and was always a coach for his children’s sports activities. Richard loved to be outdoors, grilling for the family, having family bonfires, hosting “sparty parties”, and 4-wheeling. He enjoyed croquet and golf on Father’s Day and participating in the annual father/son golf tournament. He spent many Fourth of July’s in Oscoda, Michigan, and many Thanksgiving’s in Fort Myers, Florida with his family. He was an avid Detroit and Michigan Spartans sports fan. Richard was very opinionated and enjoyed a healthy debate. He was very selfless, generous, charismatic, and a loyal friend. Richard loved spending time with and playing with his grandchildren, who he adored. Family was the most important to him. Richard was deeply loved and will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
