We are heartbroken by the passing of Middlesex County NJ Government Deputy Director Commissioner Kenneth Armwood.
Starting in public service at age 19, Kenny was the perfect role model, always leading by example. He was a shining beacon for New Brunswick, Middlesex County, and our state.
Kenny was an integral part of the community. not only because of his long-standing public service, but because of his friendships and community outreach that helped bring everyone together.
Armwood’s list of achievements included establishing the Annual Business Summit bringing leaders into the county’s economic journey; overseeing the distribution of funding from Middlesex County’s Arts Trust Fund supporting one of his passions, the arts; driving the creation of online programs connecting employers, employees, residents and job seekers, which included the launch of SkillUp; and advocating for education for all, developing programs tailored for individuals of all ages and for veterans, labor union apprenticeships and more.
Our heartfelt condolences go out to his family, friends, and the community that loved him. He will be sorely missed.
