Kenneth Walter Roberts “Corky”


It is with great sadness and deep grief that the family of Ken “Corky” Roberts inform friends and family that Ken has passed away in a tragic accident while hiking at Roberts Lake outside of Campbell River, British Columbia.

Ken was predeceased by his parents Walter and Ina Roberts, and his stepbrother Gary Walker (Lynda).

He is survived by his son, and only child, Jeremy Roberts. He is also survived by his stepmother Sarah (Walker) Roberts, his stepbrother Al (Donna) Walker, and his stepsister Lynn Walker. Ken also leaves many nieces and nephews as well as other family and friends.

He was a good man with a wicked sense of humour, shirt off his back for anyone, always a helping hand, and a compassionate and caring man not only to us but to those who crossed his path of life.

A celebration of Ken’s life will be held in Campbell River at 2:00pm, on Saturday, January 26 at the Christian Life Fellowship Church 445 Merecroft Road. There will also be a second service on Saturday, February 2, at the Richmond Pentecostal Church, 9300 Westminster Hwy, Richmond, BC at 2:00pm

Donations in Ken’s name to the West Coast Prostate Awareness Society (Contact Art Braun: 250-287-4287) or the charity of your choice would be greatly appreciated.

Ken will be missed by so many but especially by us.

God Bless You Ken Roberts and may you rest in peace.
