Kenneth "Kenney"'s Story
There's an empty seat at the bar at the Jai Alai Restaurant.
Kenneth P. "Kenney" Brant, 67, of Sharon, enjoyed many nights conversing with close friends or watching his beloved Steelers on TV at the Hermitage establishment in recent years before his unexpected death Friday (1-5-18) of a heart attack.
He was born Sept. 13, 1950, in Sharon to Herbert F. and Martha Finley Brant.
He graduated from Sharon High and Thiel College with a bachelor's degree in accounting. He was a member of Phi Theta Phi fraternity and participated in many charity walks with his frat brothers to raise funds for Pittsburgh Children's Hospital, even after graduation.
He worked as a safety and environment consultant for Safety Dynamics Inc. and later owned the Safety First firm. He earlier worked as a traveling consultant and owned a restaurant "The Stanchion" in Oil City for a few years.
Kenney was once a member and officer of the Sharon Elks Club.
He helped care for his ailing sister and brother-in-law when needed, which was greatly appreciated by his family.
He is survived by a brother, Dave (Midge) of Sharon, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters Fern Saternow and Virginia Mild; and brothers Keith, Herb, Curt and Cary.
