Left to cherish his memory are sisters, Kay Petrick and Gloria; and brother George; brother-in-law John Petrick; sisters-in-law, Helen, Myrtle and Laura.

On behalf of Uncle Ken, we would like to thank Dr. Loudon and all the staff at Teulon Hospital for their excellent care and compassionate ways towards him. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Teulon Hunter Memorial Hospital or CancerCare Manitoba. IN HIS LIGHT In His light God looked around His garden And found an empty space He then looked down upon the Earth And saw your tired face He put His arms around you And lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful He only takes the best. He knew that you were suffering He knew that you were in pain, He knew that you would never Get well on Earth again. He saw the road was getting rough And the hills were hard to climb, so He closed your weary eyelids and whispered, Peace be thine . MacKenzie Funeral Home, Stonewall in care of arrangements.
