The Reverend Doctor Lloyd H. Kenyon died on Wednesday, July 10, 2019.

With his wife of 65 years, Betty, he had lived in retirement at Birchwood Lakes in Dingmans Ferry, Pa., for the last 25 years.

He was born in Rhode Island and attended Eastern Baptist College and Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, from which he received bachelor of arts and master of theology degrees. Later he received an honorary doctoral degree for outstanding pastoral and denominational service.

He pastored three churches — Richmond Hill in Long Island, Calvary Baptist in Allentown, Pa., and Preakness Baptist in Wayne, N.J. He served as President in the American Baptist Home Misson Society and of the New Jersey Baptist Convention. While in Wayne he also served as chair of the board of directors of 700 Sisco Senior Housing Co. He also received the Outstanding Citizen Award from Temple Beth Tikvah.

In retirement he led tours to Israel, Greece, and Turkey, and traveled to 51 different nations. For 18 years he taught church history and Bible courses at TOALC, the older adult community program of East Stroudsburg University, and also for 15 years at Milford United Methodist Church. He concluded his church ministry by serving as interim pastor at the First Baptist Church of America (1636) in Providence Rhode Island.

He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; his sister, Jacqueline Hutcheon; his three children, Mark (Joanie), Gwen (Dave Rosenblatt), and Lynn (Chris Panico); six greatly loved grandchildren, Jonathan, Lori, Caroline (David Odell), Jessica, Jennifer, and Matthew; his step-granddaughter, Kari (Mike Delsoldato), and their children, Anthony, Mikaela, and Lillian.
