The Kendalls coming to terms with their loss
|Children||Donny Kendall (son, deceased)|
|Appearances||"Hedge Fund Homeboys"|
|Portrayed by||David A. Kimball|
Mr. Kendall has the air, when we meet him in "Hedge Fund Homeboys", of a man mildly numbed by the repeated blows of fate, but doing his very best to fulfill his obligations as the head of a household, and not show the strain.
He exhibits clear, and from an academic standpoint justifiable, pride in his son, Donny, believing him to have been a strong person, preserving his dignity despite the family's straitened financial circumstances. He had been a partner at a prestigious law firm until a few months earlier, and obviously, and understandably, was a little sensitive to perceived criticism of his skills as a provider. He had, however, swallowed enough of his pride to inform the school of the family's difficulties in paying the fees, and Donny had consequently been given a scholarship. The Kendalls had, in happier times, been extremely generous to the school with their donations, so it's entirely possible that they had, in a way, pre-paid Donny's tuition.
