March 21, 1945 – February 24, 2019
Stanley Francis Kenward, born on March 21, 1945 in Fort Qu’Appelle, Saskatchewan, Canada to Arthur and Irene Kenward, passed away peacefully in the arms of his children on February 24, 2019.
Stan was predeceased by his parents Arthur and Irene Kenward, his brother Michael, and his grandson Jesse. He is survived by his loving wife Greta and his three children, Laura (Ron), Kathy (Dean) and Dan (Jacqueline), his five grandchildren Ryan, Olivia, Seneth, Emma, and Mackenzie, and also by his sister Lenore.
Stan had a successful career in the Financial Industry until his retirement from Investors Group in 2012. He absolutely adored his family, loved Golf and the Canucks… even if he never did get to see them raise the cup. He lived how he preached and provided support and guidance to anyone who needed it, even if they didn’t ask for it. Dad was a faithful man and a devoted Christian. He was comforted knowing he would be with the Lord when he drew his last breath in those early morning hours.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations to the Alzheimer Society of British Columbia or the Mennonite Central Committee British Columbia.
Funeral Service will be held Saturday, March 2, 2019 at 11 am at Trinity Lutheran Church, 3845 Gladwin Road, Abbotsford, BC. This will be immediately followed by a grave side service at Hazelwood Cemetery, 34070 Hazelwood Ave., Abbotsford, BC. There will be a luncheon and Celebration of Life at approximately 12:15, also to be held at Trinity Lutheran Church. For those who do not wish to attend the graveside service, there will be refreshments served at the church until the Celebration of Life commences.
The family would like to extend their immense gratitude to the staff and workers at The Oxford Care Home in Abbotsford. The care and respect given to him, especially in those last days, brought him such comfort. We will never forget that constant kindness that was provided to him.
We could not have asked for a better father. We love you Dad and you will be missed. Till we meet again.
