November 5, 1952 – September 12, 2022
Kenneth George Kestel Ken was born November 5, 1952 in Assiniboia, SK and passed away in Regina Pasqua Hospital on September 12, 2022. Ken grew up and attended school in Limerick. After school he then began employment with John Deere in Assiniboia, a career which lasted Fifty Years, having just retired in 2020. In all those years Ken touched a lot of local farmers equipment. He became known for his knowledge and talent for repairing older models and small engines. Ken also farmed in the RM of Stonehenge along with his father and then later on his own. He moved a house to the farm and settled where his Willer grandparents farmed. There he enjoyed nature, maintaining his yard, working on restoration projects and being a great neighbor – all are thankful for the many times he kept “watch” and was a helping hand anytime but especially at harvest (his favorite time of the year). Ken was predeceased by his father Tony (1984) and sister Sylvia Bokitch (2021). He is survived by his mother, Josephine (nee Willer); brother-in-law Dennis Bokitch, niece Allison and nephew Kent. Graveside service will be held at Columbarium at Mount Hope Cemetery on Monday, September 19, 2022 at 1:00pm with Les Wilcock officiating.
