We Remember

MCCARGAR, Kenneth L.

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Kenneth L. McCargar announce his passing on April 13, 2016 at the age of 67 years. Although Ken’s battle with cancer was short, his family was proud that he fought it with determination, never losing his sense of humour and his love for life.


Born in Medicine Hat, AB, Ken graduated from U of C which led to the start of his career in sales with Cottrell Transport. He was promoted to Branch Manager of the Vancouver terminal, bringing him to the West Coast. In 1986, Ken founded his own freight brokerage business which became MC Freight Systems in Port Coquitlam, BC.


For many years, Ken was involved in the Kinsmen Club and PoCo Minor Hockey, helping to build his community. Long weekends and summers were greatly enjoyed at the family cabin at Missezula Lake near Princeton.


His retirement years were shared with his wife Nancy at their family homes in Missezula Lake and Surprise, AZ.  Retirement gave Ken and Nancy an opportunity to pursue their interests in golf, pickle ball, tennis, fishing, meeting new friends, and travel.


He will be sorely missed by his loving family: wife of 38 years, Nancy; son, Jason; son, Graham, his wife Katie and children Benjamin and Rosalie; daughter Kelly Evans (nee McCargar) and husband Jeshua; brother, Grant McCargar; sister, Marsha Bompais and husband Maurice; and 15 nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his sister Myrna Churchill.


A celebration of life will be held on Friday, May 13th at 3:00 pm at Meadow Gardens Golf Course, 19675 Meadow Garden Way, Pitt Meadows, BC.
