Kenneth Cecil Bedell
Passed away peacefully at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Hospice at the Views, Sunday July 9, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer. Born January 22, 1936.
Ken is survived by his loving wife of over 52 years Carol, children Ken (Karin), Kevin, Raida (Lyle), Cecil. All his much loved grandchildren will miss Grampa & Papa deeply. Leanna, Dougie, Crystal, Griffin, Sage, Curtis, Nick, Hannah, will always remember many a walk, a story, a game, and a laugh. Special extended family Julie (Dale), Bill, nephew Gary, and furry friend Kirby will also feel the loss of Ken’s presence.
A special thank you to the nurses, care aides, and volunteers, at Hospice at the Views. They do their work with care, compassion, professionalism, and always present smiles. Thank you also to Dr’s Johnson and Fehlau.
A private family celebration of Ken will be held at a later date.
Donations can be made on Ken’s behalf to Comox Valley Hospice Society.
“The only thing that could make Grampa Ken angry is letting his passing away hurt us for one second, one hour, one day, of our lives. So we will not mourn our Gramps but instead we will celebrate his life”
