Following the death of his mother two years later, the family moved onto a farm near Thorp, where Mr. Kenny received his education in both the rural and high school. He taught school for three years. In 1913 he completed a college business course and came to Marshfield, securing a position in the office of P. J. Schaefer Company. A year later he entered the employ of the Roddis Lumber and Veneer Company as assistant bookkeeper. Later he advanced to the position of sales manager of the company, which position he held until he entered the service during the World War. Following the war he returned to the Roddis Company, and became sales and production manager. In the spring of 1921, due to poor health, Mr. Kenny resigned this position and became local representative for a life insurance company.
