Kenneth Roy Lund August 14, 1961 – October 12, 2020
With great sadness, the family announces the passing of Ken at his Norman home, in the arms of his wife on October 12, 2020.
Ken was predeceased by his grandmother, Louise Lund; his parents, Ronald and Gladys Lund; and his sister-in-law, Valerie (Charles) Lund.
Ken is survived by his wife, Sherry (Heino); sister, Diane Carlson (Kris); brother, Bruce; niece, Brittney Carlson (Rob Bergman); nephews, Bryce Carlson, Dustin and Scott Lund (Lauren Braun); great-nephews, Layne and Hudson Bergman; mother-in-a-law, Barb (Ron Heino), and brother-in-law, Kevin Heino.
Ken was born in Kenora and attended Keewatin Public and Beaver Brae High School. As a child growing up at Muriel Lake, he enjoyed the outdoors and all it had to offer. He had the freedom to explore his grandparents’ farm with his cousins and neighbours and made many new friendships that lasted throughout his life.
Ken spent many years working in the construction and pipeline industry; it involved long hours and often being away from home for extended periods of time. Ken was a blaster and worked for Local 607 Labourers International.
Ken had a kind, gentle soul, was a humble man, and generous to a fault at times. He had a wonderful sense of humour and a distinct laugh that will be greatly missed. He valued his family and friendships and always had an open door for those to come and socialize.
Ken and Sherry recently celebrated their 24th Wedding Anniversary on September 7, 2020. They were happiest in each others company and avid animal lovers. There was always the pitter-patter of little paws - and Ken truly loved his cats.
The family would like to thank Sherry for her tenacious advocacy during Ken’s illness. It is because of her relentless efforts that Ken was able to spend his last days in the company he cherished.
His last wishes were honoured and therefore he was cremated. Due to the pandemic no service will be held. Please keep warm memories of Ken in your thoughts. Ken was taken from us too soon but his memory will always remain close to our heart and never forgotten.
“Remember him with a smile today He was not one for tears, Reflect instead, on memories Of all the happy years. Recall to mind the way he spoke And all the things he said, His strength, his stance, The way he walked Remember these instead. The good advice he gave us His eyes that shone with laughter, So much of him that never dies But lives on ever after. He was a man of honesyt, Integrity and pride, Important was the way he lived Not the way he died. If a tear should fall today Perhaps it shall be shed For the many years of happiness Please, remember those instead.”
