Kenneth George Adderley sadly passed away on 8 July 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Kenneth was a devout supporter of the South Sydney Rabbitohs and loved attending live theatre and music performances.
Kenneth lived with profound disability and for a number of years, and was a resident of the Summer Hill Group Home. Here, Kenneth and his parents, Melinda and Paul, became powerful voices for disability rights and reform.
They spoke up when the NSW Government outsourced the operation of the home and more recently, became the voice for countless people living in residential facilities for people with disability who were unable to access COVID-19 vaccines, despite being some of the most vulnerable to the virus.
The impact Kenneth made in his life cannot be understated, both to his loving family and to all people with disability across NSW.
Kenneth was the cherished son of Paul and Melinda, brother of Patrick, Fergus and Eloise, and grandson of David, Jean, Bruce and Lucille. Vale Kenneth.
