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
For those attending, please be advised that proof of full vaccination or negative PCR test, and masking was requested by Ken himself, and we, his family are honouring his request. We ask for full understanding and cooperation of these wishes during this difficult time. Thank you
For anyone wishing to do so, memorial donations can be made to St. John’s Lutheran Church; specified to go towards the wheelchair lift fund, as per Ken’s wishes.
Dearest Shelley & Family!
Praying God’s strength upon you during this difficult time! May you find peace through Him!

Shelley, so sorry for the loss of your husband.
May the Lord be with you during this time.
He was a good man and many appreciated his service to Holy Cross church.
My prayers are with you.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Shelly and family. So sorry for your loss. I knew Ken my whole life as Herb was the same age as me and we hung out a lot together. One thing I will never forget is his help baling for my dad when we were younger. Ken loved his comics and he loved reading them even while stacking bales on the hayrack. He would pull out the comics between bales and it was fun to watch him do double duty reading and stacking while us on the tractor would double clutch lots just to see him scramble on the hayrack. RIP.
My condolences Shelley and your family! I will be watching the livestream ! I am so proud of Ken’s request for proof of vaccination!
Blessings as you grieve your loss!
May God continue to uphold your family during this time of grieving just as He upheld Ken through his suffering. We rejoice in the hope of the resurection.
