Kenneth Keith Ross Collins
Ken passed away suddenly on Wednesday March 4,
2009 doing the job he loved so much. He had finally
found his passion.
He is survived by his loving Wife, Tiffany and
Daughters, Lizzy and Aleesha, his mother Vivian
Lutz, his Inlaws, Margaret and Alan Mills, Brothers,
Ned Murphy and Family, Jeff Murphy and Family,
Roger Collins and Family, Sisters, Bev Vernon-Wood
and Family, Linda Cradlemire and Family, Brother
in Law, David Mills and lifelong friend Mike Yuil, as
well as many other extended family members and
friends. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Ken was born in Salmon Arm B.C. on December
26, 1972 to his parents, Vivian Lutz and Ross
Collins. He enjoyed many sunny days on the shores
of Shuswap Lake or floating down the Enderby River.
He was an avid reader and enjoyed the great outdoors
and all that it had to offer.
He was a great dad and husband who did whatever
he could to make his “girls” happy. He longed to
win the lottery so that he could take them to faraway
places and shower them with gifts.
Ken will always be remembered for his gentle nature,
friendly smile and a bottle of Coca Cola in his hand.
“No, the journey does not end here. Death is just
another path, one that we all must take. The grey
rain –curtain of this world rolls back and all turns to
silver glass, and then you see it…White shores, and
beyond, a far green country under a swift sunrise.”
–Gandalf the White
A Memorial in honour of Ken will take place on
Saturday March 14, 2009 at 1pm at the
Senior’s Centre, 49th Street, Canoe B.C.
Everyone is welcome.
We will continue to celebrate
your life, Ken!
