CORNISH — Arthur “Joe” Kenyon, 94, died Saturday, Oct. 26, 2019, at the New London Hospital in New London. Joe was born Feb. 10, 1925, in Claremont, a son of Carroll E. and Mattie O. (Walker) Kenyon. He attended Stevens High School and went to work for the Town of Cornish for several years. He later went to work for Central Vermont Public Service. He was married to Barbara Garten in 1944; they made their home in Cornish where they raised their family. They were divorced in 1977.
