Ken SMANDYCH

January 14, 1947-September 16, 2015

Ken was born in Calgary, AB on January 14, 1947. It is with great sadness that the family announces his passing, peacefully at home in Campbell River, BC on September 16, 2015 at the age of 68 years.

Ken is survived by his loving wife Karen; his children Samantha and Cory (Shelley); his grandsons Matthew (Angela) and Mikhail (Alyssa), and one great-grandson Charlie.

At Ken’s request, a private cremation has been arranged. The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Ken and Karen’s circle of friends for their loving care and compassion during this time. For those wishing, a memorial donation to the charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family.
