Kenny was a 6 year old male orca who was captured in Canada on December 12, 1969. He passed away on May 20, 1972. 

After Kenny's capture, he was moved to Marineland of the Pacific. Although the park had recently built a larger orca tank, it could not fit all of the whales at the park. As a result, Kenny stayed in the older orca tank. Although he lived alone, he had met Orky 2, Corky 2 and Patches. He was seen in the movie "Whale of a Tale". 

Sadly, Kenny became ill with pneumonia and passed away on May 20, 1972.
