Kenneth Patrick McCabe passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, March 21, at the age of 83.

Ken was born in 1937, residing in Indian Head most of his life. He enjoyed a full life, which he attributes to having a perfect wife (Marlene), a perfect mother (Dorothy) and a wonderful sister (Eileen).

In 1957 he married Marlene Miller, realizing a dream come true. They raised a closely knit family of six. Their family grew to 50 by 2021. Ken was extremely proud of his family.

Ken leaves to mourn his passing, his loving wife of 63 years Marlene, children: Danny (Brenda) McCabe, Cathy (Dave) Silversides, Kelly (Kirk) Williamson, Jodi (Marcel) Gendron, Kerri-Lynn (Tim) McCabe/Kopp, Michael (Emily) McCabe; his sister Eileen (Ken) Hammond, 16 grandchildren, 17 great grandchildren, seven nephews, one niece, a cousin Tim Trenton and sister-in-law Blanche Block.

Three priorities to Ken were his family, sports and his hometown of Indian Head. He worked at the Experimental Farm for six years, three years with Milton-Richardson Sporting Goods, nine years as a Recreation Director, a couple of years with Prairie Valley Travel Association and CKCK Radio and over twenty-five years with the Indian Head-Wolseley News. Ken created and operated the Rural Sports Hall of Fame for 26 years.

Ken battled with Parkinsons for a number of years.

I had the pleasure of growing up down the street from Ken. He was always smiling while he tended to his garden or sat listening to music. I got to know Ken much better the summer I worked at the sports hall. Since then, Ken and I kept in touch. He was always eager to support me in whatever journey I was on. He was a kind, caring, enthusiastic, and wonderful man who will be missed greatly in his community.

I would like to take this opportunity to express our sympathies and condolences to the Mc Cab family on the loss of Ken, from the many friends, who associated with him in the sports world, and from those individuals who have been inducted into the Indian Head sports hall of fame from Carry The Kettle First Nation.
He was an awesome gentle man.

I would like to pass on my sympathies to Marlene and family at the passing of Ken. Although only knowing Ken for a short time, he was a generous and loving soul. Visited and contributed to his wonderful Sports Hall in Indian Head. Wow, he had some awesome items there. He was a knowledgeable host and explained the various keepsakes. The sports world in Saskatchewan, the town of Indian Head and the hockey rink will be diminished without his presence.

Our sincere condolences to the McCabe Family on the passing of a great man that was the biggest promoter of Indian Head ever. His passion for his home community and his family were second to none. It was always a great pleasure to visit with Ken and discuss whatever sport was being played at the time. His support of Minor and Senior sports in Indian Head and area as well as the history of the area will long be remembered.
