Kenneth Gaines

May 4, 1933 - October 11, 2014


On Saturday October 11, 2014, Mr. Kenneth (Ken) Stewart Gaines of Oliver passed away peacefully at Sunnybank Centre at the age of 81 years.

Ken will be fondly remembered by his loving wife of 57 years, Doris; daughter Debbie (Terry), son Gary (Gail), and son Ron (Leslie); grandchildren Danielle, T.J., Ryan, Ethan, Dallas and Taylor.

Ken retired in 1989 after working at the BC Penitentiary for twenty five years, the Matsqui Institution for eight years and the CPR for six years.

He enjoyed his annual golf trips to Okanagan Falls with Doris and friends, trips to Saskatchewan to visit family, reading, gardening, and of course golfing, when he was able.

Ken was always very active in his community. He volunteered his time and knowledge as a member of the F.O.E, the Royal Canadian Legion, the Oliver Elks and bookkeeping for the South Okanagan Health Care Auxiliary.
