Kenneth Lawrence

October 14, 1948 - December 3, 2015


It is with extreme sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our wonderful Husband, Father and Papa, KENNETH CLARK LAWRENCE.  Born to Ellen and William Lawrence on October 14, 1948, in Dundee Scotland, Ken immigrated to Canada with his family, in 1956, settling in Ocean Falls, BC.  It was there that he met and married his wife of 44 years, Debby.  Shortly after marrying, Ken and Debby headed to Vancouver Island where they spent 4 years in Gold River before settling in the Cowichan Valley.  It was in Duncan that they started their family, eventually moving to Crofton, where Ken worked until his retirement in 2008.  Ken always considered his family to be his greatest achievement.  His years of coaching and supporting youth sports in the Cowichan Valley made lifelong memories for all of his children as well as many other children and youth over the years.  Family, travel and retirement were his favourite topics of conversation and all those who stopped to talk to him would be entertained with the latest developments of his loves

.  Survived by his grieving family, wife Debby, daughter Patricia (Steve), son Clark (Mélissa), daughter Candice (Ryan), and the true loves of his life, his grandchildren, Ella, Evan and Amelia.  Also survived by brothers Brian and Rick, sister Vicki (Neil), sisters-in-law Leslie (Tullis), Susan (John), Cathy and Christine (Ed), brother-in-law Mike, nieces Jill (Ryan), Julie, Karen, Kara, Shannon, Alicia, Crystal and Nicole, and nephews Glen (Louanne), Scott (Phalen), Craig (Marina), Christopher, Neil Jr. and Calvin.

  A Celebration of Life has been planned for Saturday, December 12, 2015 at H.W. Wallace Cremation and Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Road in Duncan, from 1:00 to 3:00.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the Heart and Stroke Foundation in honour of Ken.
