Kendall joined Everton as a player in 1967 from Preston North End becoming one of the "Holy Trinity", alongside Alan Ball and Colin Harvey in Everton's midfield. Kendall won the league with Everton in 1969-70, before going on to captain the Toffees.
He also played for Birmingham City, Stoke and Blackburn Rovers.
Kendall managed Everton in three separate spells, joining them from Blackburn in 1981 and leaving in June 1987 after winning the league championship twice, the FA Cup, the Charity Shield on three occasions and the European Cup Winners' Cup.
He returned to the club in 1990 for a three-year spell before a final one-year spell in 1997. He also managed Blackburn, Manchester City, Notts County and Sheffield United, as well as spells abroad with Athletic Bilbao, Xanthi and Ethnikos Piraeus.
He stewarded former Chester City players Tony Grant and Graham Allen during their stints at Everton.
He leaves behind a wife, Lil, and three children, Hailey, Lisa and Simon.
