Ken Sylvestre

February 8, 1956 - December 2, 2022

Ken was born and raised in the Yukon and revelled in its mountains and rivers. He liked a challenge, thrived on learning new things and believed in giving back to his community. We are fortunate to have so many good memories of our time with him.

Ken is lovingly remembered by his wife Margrit, sons Ryan (Kirsten) and Kevin (Joanna), grandchildren, and sister Diane (Donald).

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Dear Margrit,
I am only seeing this now, June 2023. I have such warm memories of Ken, his strong and gentle ways, his warm hospitality. I was recently viewing slides from some of our outings together. Condolences to you and your family.

Dearest Margrit. I am truly sorry to have just learned of Ken's passing. Please accept my sincere condolences to you and your family. It was always a treat to have you both enter the dental clinic. God Bless.

Ken hired me when I graduated from university. He was a great mentor and all around great human that was appreciated and like by so many.

I am very sorry to hear of Ken Sylvestre’s passing. I knew the family through Golden Horn School when both boys, now men were in my class room.The family was so interested and active at our school . Both Ken and Margrit supported the boys, through their year in my class room, grade five.
May you have peace and fond memories of your Dad and husband.
I am sending our condolences for the loss of Ken.

Sincerely Trudy Veres East Kootenays, Columbia Valley, B.C.
