Kenneth Roy Winterman
December 13, 1928 – November 30, 2019
With sadness in our hearts we share the passing of Kenneth Roy Winterman on November 30, 2019. He was 90 years young and still living a good life. Roy was born in Peterborough England, and served in the Armed Forces from January 1947 to February 1949. He met the love of his life Edna when she was 21 years old; they married and were inseparable until she passed February 1, 2016. In 1965 Roy decided he wanted to give his family a better life, so he scrimped, saved and borrowed his way, to bring us to the beautiful place called Canada, where we all became Canadian Citizens. After a year or so, we ended up in the then tiny town of Kelowna, where he started a Machine Shop called Active Machine Works. Working hard and long hours he grew that company until it ended up employing 70 workers. Roy was always young at heart, was quick with a joke, and loved nothing more than bantering with his family and friends…..well; maybe he loved fishing a little more. Even at 90 years of age he lawn bowled, set up tables for the clubhouse activities of where he lived and participated in social events. He remained in his home until the end. He loved his family and was always there to help out when he was needed. He was kind and caring and he will be greatly missed by us all. He is survived by his daughter Susan and her husband Lyle, his son Mike and his wife Barb, his grandchildren Chris, Cam, and Stacey, and his great granddaughter Aysha. A Celebration of Ken’s life to be held in the spring of 2020. Donations may be made in his name to your favorite charity in lieu of flowers.

I will always remember your contagious laugh and your beautiful smile. You will be deeply missed here at Sunrise Village by so many people. I enjoyed the time I was able to share with you at men’s coffee and watching you carpet bowl. You had the greatest sense of humour. You were always such a special person with such a kind heart! Until we meet again my friend! Rest In Peace Roy! Your Friend Sandi ❤️
