Grandpa "T" passed away peacefully watching his favorite show, sitting in his favorite chair. His big lovable heart went to sleep. Ken is survived by his wife Norma of 43 years, son Chris (C.J) partner Sunshine (Sunny), granddaughter Hayley (Fred) and sister in England Christine and brother-in-law Brian. Nephew Andrew, nieces Debbie and Belinda and their children. Sister-in-law Angela (Bubblybums), nephew Paul, niece Sarah and her children. The family are grateful to Dr. Paul Basson for his exemplary care for keeping our Gentle Giant on this earth with us. Ken, Norma and C.J. landed at Vancouver airport October 18th 1974. Found their dream acre with a little house and Ken set to renovating and improving our paradise over the years. He worked at Chilliwack Datsun and Cherry Ford for a time, and then decided to become a Contractor. In the 80's work was limited, so he bought a semi truck and went long distance hauling across Canada and the USA. Another change of career, 1993 - 2003 he became an employee of the District of Chilliwack working as a Prison Guard in the Agassiz and Chilliwack Detachments. Upon his retirement, he became an avid gardener and both Norma and Ken thoroughly enjoy their 'little park'. Very special thanks to Dan Knoke, a true friend in our time of need. A get together for tea and remembrance will be held at Sharon's, Open house 46550 McCaffrey Blvd, just off Chilliwack Central from 1 to 4p.m February 2nd. You are welcome to make a donation to the Heart and Stroke foundation in lieu of flowers in Ken's memory.
