Kenny was born March 3, 1954, in Jamaica, Queens. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree from Old Westbury College, where he majored in psychology and political science.

Kenny worked at various schools with disabled adults and was a program coordinator for East End Disability Associates.

He leaves behind his mother and father, Arline (Weiss) and Howard Doppel; his sister and brother-in-law, Irene and Thomas Winter; and two nieces, Maureen Bennett and Elizabeth Winter.
