Ken leaves behind his 5 daughters, Teri (Dan), Gay, Bobbie (Tom), Lori (Wayne), and Rhonda (Ben), his son Kevin (Alexandra), and his step-children Nancy (Doug) and Bill (Gloria) from his first marriage to Flo Sturt, his step children Dan (Lori), Marilyn (Lyle), Heather (Len), Susan (Ray) and Ken (Sue) from his second wife Mabel Louttit, his grandchildren Dan, Julie, Ken, Wendy, Karen, Alexis, Ramona, Jacqueline, Ryan, Adrienne, Samantha, Alexandra, Madeline, Sarah and Gabrielle, his step-grandchildren Terri, Don, Laura, Amanda, Kevin, Christina, Sandra, Harley, Leah, Shae-Lynn, and Dyllan, and a multitude of great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, as well as his siblings Patricia and David, and dear friend Anne Johnson. Ken was pre-deceased by his parents, Arthur and Ada, first wife Flo, his second wife Mabel, his brothers Angus, Pete and Frank and his sisters Phyllis and Helen.

Our beautiful father left this world on November 24, 2023. He had a brief stay at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, but until then, enjoyed a rich and wonderful life at Heaton Place in Armstrong where he was a resident for several years. Ken was born in Comox but grew up in Armstrong. He joined the Air Force in 1950 and enjoyed his career there as a radar technician. He moved his family across Canada, living in several provinces throughout his career. After he retired, he enjoyed a second career with Atmospheric Environment Service. He was fiercely intelligent, had a wicked sense of humour, and a personality that made him a dear friend of so many. He had a wide range of interests including technology, reading, puzzles, games, and sports. He took up tennis at age 68 and played a great game! He was vibrant, independent and so loving. Ken made us all laugh with his vast array of t-shirts with hilarious quotes. He loved his gadgets too. He continued to challenge himself and was a true life-long learner right up until his final days, making all his own decisions. Ken was a fantastic role model for his children, and truly ahead of his time.
