The school's field house was named for him in 1967, and he received the school's Blake Medal and Loyola College's Maryland Medal.

He is survived by his wife, the former Doris Broderick; two daughters, Mary Kennedy Behning of Catonsville and Theresa Kennedy Ward of Baltimore; three sons, Dave Kennedy of Reisterstown, Gerry Kennedy of Rome and George Kennedy of Catonsville; two sisters, Margaret Phelan of Philadelphia and Agnes Yarrow of Brigantine, N.J.; and eight grandchildren.

The family suggested contributions be made to the Loyola High School Scholarship Fund.
