Ken passed away at home surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Rosthern, Saskatchewan and was predeceased by his parents, Albert and Katherine, and his brothers Raymond and Gerry. He is survived by his wife Dorothy, children Linda (Mark), Guy (Lynda) and Kelly (Jeffrey), grandchildren Ava (Zac), Daniel, Mya (Stephen) and Jacob (Laurie), great-grandchildren Benjamin, Maria, Henry, Grayson and Joseph, and his sister Caroline.
Ken and Dorothy met in Saskatoon, where he was stationed with the RCAF. They were married in 1956 and the family were posted over the years to Sea Island, Germany and Ontario. After fifteen years with the forces, Ken took a job in Whitehorse, YT as an Instructor at the Yukon Vocational School. Twenty one years later he retired to Victoria only to take up contract work with Camosun College and start a company, Flex-Ed Resources, to develop curriculums for government courses.
Ken always had a keen interest in sports, and both participated and coached. Walking became his passion in Victoria, often accompanied by friends and family who struggled keeping up.
Ken loved his family dearly and was very proud of them. He treasured his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who brought him much joy. He will be remembered as a people person, with a great smile, sense of humour, and many stories.
We will remember him when we are out walking especially on nature trails. His children say one of the greatest gifts he gave them was the love of nature which they are passing on.
Ken will always remain in our hearts.
