The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever. Billy C. Kennedy, 78, passed away after a brief illness with covid on December 31, 2020 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Connie and Annie Kennedy. He is survived by his wife, Ramona A. Kennedy; children, Lisa Kennedy, Andrew Kennedy, wife, Selina Kennedy, Chris Kennedy, wife, Melissa Kennedy, Billy C. Kennedy, and Dallas Kennedy; siblings, Shirley Lesage, Sandi Rayburn, Margie Braud, Keith Kennedy, and Tommy Kennedy; grandchildren, Maegan Williams, Cortney Hughes, Alyssa McMorris, Morgan Kennedy, and Mia Kennedy, Ashley Kennedy, and Jamie Manning; great grandchildren, Brylie Williams, Caleb Williams, Renley Williams, Baylor Hughes, Abel Hughes, and Kennedy Hughes. Billy attended Central High School and Southeastern University. As a testament to his dedication to his craft, Billy worked as an instrument and electrical technician for 16 years at Exxon and 31 years at Georgia Pacific. His love for his family and friends were forever present and Billy would never pass up an opportunity to help anyone solve a problem or get a project finished. Billy loved being outdoors and was never more at peace than when on his tractor or lawnmower, as he perfected his yard, property and garden. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a memorial service on Thursday, January 7, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. at Rabenhorst Funeral Home, 825 Government St., Baton Rouge. A visitation will begin at 11:00 a.m. A Graveside service will follow the memorial service at Greenoaks Memorial Park, 9595 Florida Blvd., Baton Rouge.

Mr. Billy and Mrs. Ramona were adult fixtures in my life. If they were at my parents house, we knew it would be a visit full of talk, teasing, and laughter for everyone. If my parents and the Kennedy's were out of touch now and then, it never mattered, they just picked up where they left off. I looked up to Mr. Billy as a child and admired him once I was an adult. My condolences to Mrs. Ramona and my childhood friends, Lisa, Andy, and Chris.
