It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband and father, Kern on April 18, 2011. Kern was born in Albany, Oregon to William Mills and Susan Cook. He served in the US Army and Naval Air Force in WWII. During that time he married Lucille Shilkett. Their first baby died of SIDS and they had a second daughter, Lydia. Kern had a Plumbing, Heating and Electrical business in Medford, Oregon until 1967 when he relocated his family to the Fraser Valley. He spent the following years operating a rock crushing business. During that time, he and Lucille parted. He married Judy Potts and raised her two sons. Judy died in 1994 and in 2001 Ken married his 3rd wife, Christine.

He is survived by his wife, Christine; daughter Lydia, stepson Jeff, two step grandchildren, Colton and Katelynn as well as many nieces and nephews in Oregon and California.
