July 12, 1948 – Dec. 19, 2016
With heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of a beloved husband, father and grandfather. Left to mourn are his wife of 43 years, Linda; his sons Robert (Challayne), Jason (Kyla); and his adored grandchildren Quinn, Emmett and Liam; and his sisters Dr. Geraldine Kenney-Wallace and Jacqualine Kenney.
Julian was born in Portsmouth, England and was educated at Abingdon School in Oxford. He immigrated to Canada with his family in 1966 and attended the University of British Columbia where he gained a B.A. in 1973 and subsequently attended law school, obtaining his Juris Doctor in 1977.
Julian was one of the founding partners of the law firm Lindsay Kenney LLP of Vancouver, B.C. in 1980 and practised from the Vancouver office for nearly three decades until March 2008 when he retired from the firm and relocated to 100 Mile House B.C. In 2010, he joined Peter Messner, Q.C., in a partnership that eventually evolved into the current firm of Heartland Law LLP.
Julian was a member of the Law Society of B.C. and Canadian, Vancouver, Fraser Valley and Cariboo Bar Associations. He served on the executive for two years as Deputy Chairman of Mackrell International, an association of law firms with worldwide representation.
Julian had a long history of business and community involvement but was never happier than when giving his adored grandchildren tractor rides around the farm. He will be sorely missed.
A gathering for family and friends will be planned for the spring.
In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Salvation Army.
