Feb. 2, 1953 –Feb. 5, 2022
On Feb.5, in the presence of his loving family, Ken took up his residence in the room that was prepared for him in his Father’s house.
Ken was born and raised in Warman and lived almost his entire life here. He truly cared about his hometown and was honoured to serve as alderman on the Town Council for twelve years. This council was instrumental in implementing the storm sewer system and pavement throughout the town in the 1980’s. He worked briefly in Thompson, Manitoba, along with friends from Warman and Osler. In the spring of 1972, he began his 47 year career at ASL Paving Ltd. He started out on the road, on the back end of the paver in summer and in the parts dept, in the winter. As our family grew, he made the decision to no longer go out the road, and was full time in the parts room, moving up to parts manager. He loved the company, his job, and had a good relationship with both management and coworkers. He reluctantly retired due to his health.
Ken is survived by his loving family: Wife of 42 years, Shelley
Son & “Daughter” Jason & Heather
Son & “Daughter” Scott & Rachel; Granddaughters Elli, Lily & Brynn
Daughter & “Son” Jenn & Blake; Granddaughter Zoe, Grandsons Logan & Everson
Being a Papa was a joy to him and he loved whenever any of his grandchildren came over; if they got too loud, he just took out his hearing aids!!! We will all love and miss him forever
He was a man of great faith who knew that his faith and strength came from His Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He continued to praise Him until the very end, and is now praising him in person.
He is also survived by his mother, Nettie, his siblings: Ev (Ron); Don (Shelly); Cathy and their families, and Sister-in-law Elsie.
The service will be held Friday, February 11th 1:30 pm at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 123 S. Railway St, Warman. The service will be live-streamed on youtube via https://youtube.com/channel/UC_OpskM944YfszyudW8he5w
