Ken passed away peacefully at home on September 22, 2020 after a hard-fought battle with cancer.
Ken was born on September 23, 1955 in Melfort, Saskatchewan to parents Sarah and Calvin Rhea; he later moved to Quesnel and worked at Cariboo Pulp and Paper for 39 years before his retirement in 2015.
Ken enjoyed hunting, motorcycles, watching hockey, and going to concerts with Rene. After retirement he could often be found doing the River Walk or out having a coffee with friends. Ken will be remembered for his sharp sense of humour and love for his family and friends.
Ken is predeceased by his parents Calvin and Sarah, brothers Jim and Dale (Glor), sisters Muriel and Frances (Bob). He is survived by his wife Rene, children Lyndsey and Kris, siblings Barb (Phil), Karen(Al) and Pete, sister-in-law Sharon, brother-in-law Keith and many nieces, nephews and friends.
There will be no service at this time.
Special thanks to everyone who has offered their kind condolences as well as Dr. Miller and Dr. Ho and staff at the BC Cancer Centre of the North, the GR Baker Hospital Lab, Ambulatory Care Unit, and Tiffany from Community Health Services.
