KENNETH ALLEN DAYE

Kenneth Allen Daye passed away on 4th of July, 2008 after a lengthy battle with Parkinson’s disease. Ken was born in St. John, New Brunswick but moved to Curling, Newfoundland during the depression with his family. During World War 2, his mother signed him up for the Canadian Army when he was 17 years of age. Due to his young age he was assigned to North Bay, Ontario. In North Bay he met his future wife Doris Brown and they were married after the end of WW 2. They had one daughter Shirley. Ken worked for CPR for a short time and then was hired by Deluxe Coach Lines where he was fondly known as “Whitey” before finally being hired at Ontario Northland Railway as a bus driver. Ken remained a long time resident of North Bay, Ontario after his retirement from the ONR and moved to Mission, BC in 2004 when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease.

Ken is survived by his wife Doris, daughter Shirley and her husband Dean, his grandson Shawn and his wife Triva, and his 2 great-grand-children, Mykal and Brandon plus his 3 sisters Netta, Barbara and Dorothy. He was predeceased by his parents Ethelbert and Etta Daye and by his 2 brothers Earl and Eldon. A private memorial was held for family and friends in Chilliwack.
