Kenneth (Ken) Nicholas Leibel, beloved husband of Joanne Leibel and father of Tracie and Kim of Calgary, passed away on Saturday, July 30, 2005 at the age of 54 years.
Ken was born on July 19, 1951 in Macklin, SK. Through his growing years, he lived in the Western provinces until coming to Calgary when he married Joanne on July 20, 1973. He worked in Calgary in the trucking industry for thirty-five years as an owner operator. Ken’s life was filled with humour and he especially loved the time spent with his family.
