It is with a deep sense of loss that we announce the passing of Ken Loewen, on March 26th, 2019, at age 65.
Born March 14th, 1954, in Altona, Manitoba, Ken worked construction across the prairies before arriving in the Windermere Valley where he met his wife, Alison. They married in 1982 and raised their two children, Charlie and Jenny, in Edgewater, Pinantan, and Groundbirch, British Columbia.
A lover of animals and life outdoors, Ken especially enjoyed time hunting and fishing in the mountains and on the ranch in Groundbirch. He had a quick wit and kind heart. He liked to help others and will be remembered for his generosity to neighbours and strangers alike. Ken was a hard worker and skilled carpenter who handcrafted many beautiful buildings, including his family’s home in Edgewater. He also spent time as a trained medic in the north and meeting fellow hunters and sportsmen across the valley while building and operating Radium Archery Ltd.
Ken loved his family and he will be missed. He leaves behind Alison, Charlie, and Jenny, his siblings Lori, Rita, and Gary, his dog, Big Guy, and many extended family and friends.
Following his wishes, a private service was held on April 4, 2019. We thank those who have supported us, and those who were with Ken in the final chapter of his life. We take comfort in knowing his struggle is over, and that he is at peace.
In lieu of flowers, we encourage those who knew and cared about Ken to offer their generosity to someone in need.
