(Moore) McKenna; his three sons, Robert McKenna and his wife Crystal, Andrew McKenna and Scott McKenna and his wife Ashley; three wonderful granddaughters Sabrinah, Skylar, and Margaret; also survived by his sisters Nancy, Beth, Peggy and a brother Billy and their families.
Bob was born on January 4, 1957 in Boston, MA to William F. and Margaret R. (Heger) McKenna. After building his forever home, Bob moved his family to York in 1997, where he remained until his final day.

Other interests included starting his day with a Cumby’s coffee, playing mechanic in the garage, spoiling his granddaughters, and kicking his feet up with a cold Budweiser.
