    Dorothy I am so sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. I shall miss the two of you coming into the shop but I shall leave the picture of him in my chair on the shelf where it belongs. He was a lovely kind gentle man who always had a way of lightening my day. My condolences to you and your children and grandchildren.

  • Philipp Strenger says:

    One more angel appeared in heaven Sunday and will be very much be missed by many. My condolences on your loss of husband, father, grandfather and a good Christian man of God.

  • Jeff Krivoshen says:

    Doris and family – I am sorry to hear of your loss, but know that considerable solace and comfort will come knowing that Ken is at peace, having gone to be at home with the Lord. A life well lived, and a legacy for his family to carry on. My thoughts are with you in the days ahead.

  • Arnold and Karen Dobroskay says:

    I cherish the great times growing up with the Summach family on Lake Crescent – the only two pink houses. Mr Summach was a great Christian man and together with his wife Dorothy brought up a great family. I will never forget his funny laugh. ” Those who live in the Lord never see each other for the last time”.
    Love and prayers, Arnold and Karen Dobroskay.

  • Dwynn Forsyth says:

    I shall forever remember uncle Ken’s sense of humor, always quick with a witty comment, or telling of a joke; and his generous and gracious nature, having spent many weekends in Calgary with you as a teen visiting Neville and George. His devotion and love for Jesus was ever evident in everything he did and you can take comfort knowing with certainty that his wit, charm and grace is being shared now with the Lord and his brothers and sisters in heaven.

  • Wayne & Linda Danforth says:

    Joanne & Jonathan,
    Please accept our heart felt sympathy on the passing of your father.
    May the sorrow that you are feeling in your heart, lighten by the love that surrounds you and your family.

  • Shelley Page says:

    Our family sends our deepest sympathy. There are many memories that come to mind! Ted and Shirley (Mom and Dad) have brought many more to light through conversations this week. We send our love.

  • Desmond dobroskay says:

    I will always remember those days when I could go down the street a few houses away as a child and have the same spiritual and loving environment as my own home. Dorothy, you and Ken raised a wonderful family, of which I have been blessed to have being a part of. A conversation with Ken might have touched any subject, even sports, but always seemed to come back to his Savior in the end. His example in life will live on in our hearts and we can look forward to being with him again.

    Our prayers are with you all. Love ,Desmond and Cindy Dobroskay

  • Richard and Betty Oostra says:

    Our sincere condolences to you Doris and family. May God give you the peace and comfort knowing that Ken is with his heavenly Father now.
    You were our best neighbors in Calgary. Enjoyed our coffee visits and the laughter we shared. Ken had a wonderful sense of humor and was truly a helper in need. Our prayers and love are with you. Richard and Betty Oostra

  • Sharon Pluim says:

    Please accept our sincerest condolences upon the loss of an amazing husband, father, grandfather and friend. My dad, Orville, had the pleasure of visiting with both Ken and Doris not too long ago in Kelowna. He enjoyed that visit immensely, catching up with dear friends. Please know that we will think and pray for you often during this difficult time.
