John C. Kenefick, who died Friday, July 15, at age 90 was president of Union Pacific from 1971 to 1983 when he was named chairman and chief executive officer of Union Pacific Railroad. An industry giant, he guided the railroad with even temperament through stifling regulation and the threat of nationalization into a new age of health and competitive strength.



I met him a number of times. He was always cordial and boy did he know a lot of stuff about railroading. Always had a good story. He will be missed. TZ
