KENNETH WILLIAM KROGEL

1937 – 2015

Ken went home to be with the Lord Wednesday, November 11, 2015 in Vernon Jubilee Hospital where he received excellent, compassionate care from all who attended him. From a small boy, Ken had a passion for music. He learned to play the trumpet and did so excellently, he also taught himself to play the saxophone. He spent many happy years with bands, the last being “The Classics” who were well known throughout the Valley. Ken was warm and friendly, enjoyed being with people and would also start a conversation whether he knew you or not. He had a great sense of humour, loved telling jokes and teasing. He will be sadly missed by his loving wife Trixie, his children Laureen, Sharon, Gordon (Carrie) & Robert (Beate), his brother Donald, four grandchildren and two nephews and many friends. A private gathering was held on November 17th at Lakeview Memorial Gardens.

“Ken, you flew away to a land where joys will never end. ‘Hallelujah’.”

A Celebration of Life Service will be held in the spring.
