Kenneth Gerard MacDonald

Ken died at the age of 84 on 6 January 2016. He was born on 19 March, 1931 in St Margaret’s, Prince Edward Island. Ken and his wife Noreen Agnes MacDonald moved to Salmon Arm, British Columbia 30 years ago after Ken retired.

Ken trained as a teacher in PEI, but decided to take up a career in operating grain elevators when he moved to Calgary, Alberta to take up his first position with the federal government. He managed grain elevators in Prince Rupert, Moose Jaw and Churchill.

Ken was an avid golfer (four holes in one) and was a member of the eight ender club in curling.

He is survived by his wife Noreen, his sons Ian and Gerard and his sister Margaret. He also has four grandchildren Sean, Emily, Erin and Giselle who will miss him.

The family would like to thank all those who helped provide care to Ken in his final years, in particular, the staff at the Shuswap Lodge Retirement Residence where Ken and his wife moved in 2014.

Prayers will be offered as part of the 5 pm mass at St Joseph’s on 23 January 2016.
