It is with great love and sadness that we announce Ken’s passing on September 30, 2014 at the Kootenay Boundary District Hospital in Trail. Ken was predeceased by his parents, Jim and Lila Hood.
Ken worked for 36 years at the local sawmill. Ken will be remembered for his dedication and work on the Grandview Coop Housing, Robson Irrigation Board, Strata committees, Unions and Church Boards. His passion was for the Robson community and he volunteered many hours to the Robson Community Memorial Church and Cemetery.
Ken’s favourite pastime was family. You could always find him out hunting, fishing or picking huckleberries with many members of his family and friends. Ken will be remembered for his kindness, love, and generosity of his time. He was a wonderful man of God, who was always happily available whenever and for whatever reason to help his family, friends, Church and community.
Ken will be lovingly remembered by his wife Elaine, his children Barbara Boyd, Brenda (Kevin) Basran, and Michael Hood, his grandchildren Jeffrey (Irene) Boyd, Jesse Basran, Nikki Basran, Kyle Hood, Haley Hood, his siblings Elaine (Val) Leiding, Ruth (Don) Rosler, Marvin (Lori) Hood and numerous nieces and nephews.
A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Clemens-Gibbon, and the devoted doctors, nurses and staff for their loving care during Ken’s battle with cancer.
A Celebration of Life will be held at the New Life Assembly, 602 7th Street at 10:00 am, Saturday, October 11, 2014 with internment at Robson Community Memorial Cemetery. A light reception lunch will follow at New Life Assembly.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Robson Community Memorial Church Society, Box 21, Robson, BC, V0G 1X0. A portion of these donations will be used to purchase a bench and plaque to place in the cemetery in honour
of Ken’s work and dedication.
