Johnston, Ken

Ken Johnston, beloved husband and best friend of Sharon Johnston of Calgary, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family on Thursday, September 18, 2008 at the age of 58 years, after a brief but courageous struggle with pancreatic cancer. Ken was born in Salmon Arm, BC and moved to Edmonton, AB where he met Sharon from Winnipeg when he started his career in the insurance industry. His career took him and his family to Winnipeg and ultimately to Calgary where they have been for the last nineteen years. Over thirty-three years in the insurance business, Ken was very well respected and liked by his peers who will miss his knowledge and experience. In addition to his family, Ken loved being outdoors, whether fishing in the mountains, going for walks, puttering around the yard, or having a beer on the deck. Kenny will be deeply missed by Sharon, his wife of thirty-two years. Dad will be lovingly remembered by his daughter Tracy and his sons, Trevor and Kevin (Victoria). We will all look back fondly on our Thursday night steak dinners. Also left to mourn are his mother Jean; sister Linda (Merv); niece Theresa; nephew Brent (Kelly), all of the Enderby, BC area; and his sister-in-law Joyce of Prince George. Numerous other relatives and friends will also miss him. He was predeceased by his father Jim and brother Terry.  At Ken’s request no formal service will be held. Forward condolences through In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made directly to Ducks Unlimited, P.O.
