Kenny, family firm built highways By Olivia Clarke Tribune Staff Writer The Kenny family's home movies featured scenes such as the mayor cutting a ribbon to mark the opening of the Chicago Skyway or a trip to Disneyland after Interstate Highway 5 in San Diego, Calif., was com- 'ctcu The events were significant to them because the roadways were built through the family company, Kenny Construction Co. The same company also built Chicago's first subway station at Clark and Division Streets; O'Hare Airport's first jet runway; and Chicago's first Deep Tunnel project. John E. Kenny, 86, company chairman, who helped advance construction technology and involved his firm in public works pro jects throughout the country, died Wednesday, Aug. 2, in Glenbrook Hospital in Glenvlew. Kenny Construction is a family firm started in Chicago in 1927. Ma jor projects the family was associ ated with include the Dan Ryan Expressway and the Illinois Tollway System. At the age of 14, Mr. Kenny started in the family business by carrying water to the construction workers. He graduated from Geor getown University with a degree in business, took over the firm in 1963 and became its president in 1968. Mr. Kenny is described as a fam ily man who helped raise seven children, including two sets, of twins. Besides his family, his main loves, which he shared with his children, were construction and golf. Five of his children work for Kenny, and six of the seven play golf. In 1975, Metropolitan Golf Writ ers and Golf Digest magazine named the Kennys "Golf Family of the Year," an honor of which he was extremely proud. He learned to play golf when he was 12 years old, cad-dying at a country club for $1.64 a day. "He was phenomenal in golf," said his son Jim. "He gave us the gift of golf. He said he made his greatest friendships out there. He was proud of watching his kids play."

She was 96. Mrs. Holt first attracted national attention when she and her husband, Harry, adopted eight abandoned children whose fathers were American soldiers. In 1954, Mrs. Holt, a nurse, and her husband, who was a farmer and a lumberjack, went to a high school auditorium in Eugene, Ore., to watch a film about Amerasian children in Korean orphanages. "We had never heard of such poverty and despair," Mrs. Holt later wrote in "The Seed from the East," one of her four books on adoption. "We had never seen such emaciated arms and legs, such bloated starvation-stomachs and such wistful little faces searching for someone to care." At first, the Holts sent money to Korean orphanages, but they soon decided that the children needed families. The couple were both about 50 years old and had already reared six biological children. At the time, federal law prevented any family from adopting more LESHYN Steven Leshyn, 89, of Gulf Breeze, FL, died at home on Thursday, August 3, 2000.
