Charles (Chick) A. Kennedy, 76, of Carlisle, died on Friday, July 7, 2017 at West Shore Hospital, Mechanicsburg.  He was born on November 22, 1940 in Carlisle, and was a son of the late Charles H. B. Kennedy and Dorothy L. (Carl) Kennedy.  He was married to the late Diane “Dee” (Wagner) Kennedy.


Chick graduated from Boiling Springs High School with the Class of 1958.  He earned his Bachelor’s degree from Dickinson College in 1962 and his Master’s degree from the University of Delaware in 1965.  Chick was a physicist and retired after 40 years of service with Raytheon Corp.  As he always said, “This IS rocket science”.
