Kenneth Francis Xavier Kunzman passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Friday March 3, 2023 at the age of 85. Ken was born in Bayonne, New Jersey on April 26, 1937 to Alfred and Margaret (Beirne) Kunzman.
Ken started his education at St. Peter’s Prep, where he graduated in 1954. He then went on to attend the College of the Holy Cross where he played on the Varsity Basketball team. Ken then attended Fordham Law School. Upon graduating Fordham in 1961, he worked for one year as a law clerk to the Honorable Gerald T. Foley, New Jersey Superior Court, Appellate Division. His legal career took a detour when Ken served his country as a Captain in the United States Air Force from 1962-1965. Upon his return from service, he resumed what would become a very successful legal career. Shortly after joining Connell Foley LLP, Ken was named partner and held that position until the day he died 55 years later. Ken loved the law and was especially proud of being awarded the Thomas More Medal for Integrity in the Law. Connell Foley was his work family and he cherished the close friendships with his partners, associates, clients and faithful assistant Nora Welten.
