Island mourns loss of fine Manxman

Island mourns loss of fine Manxman

A Manxman who touched the lives of everyone he came into contact with.

That’s just one of the many tributes being made to John Kennaugh who has passed away at the age of 77.

Lord Bishop Robert Paterson has described him as a great Manxman, broadcaster, farmer, raconteur and Christian.

A farmer since he left school aged 15, Mr Kennaugh was involved in all aspects of Island life, including more than 40 years as a German Commissioner, over 20 years as Captain of the Parish and a 24-year spell as a JP.

He leaves a wife Margaret, three daughters and wider family.
