Kenneth Russell Lovo, beloved husband of the late Rosie Lovo of Calgary, passed away on Sunday, October 28, 2007 at the age of 86 years.
Ken was born near Glentworth, SK where he lived until his teen years, subsequently residing in Woodrow, SK where he soon met his soul-mate, Rosie Crooks. They were married in 1942. He was stationed in the Air Force during the war and then moved to Kincaid, SK until 1964, when Calgary became home. He was a brilliant mechanic and had a wonderful sense of humour. He loved playing the piano, singing hymns and love songs, making powerful speeches at weddings and family reunions, building eleven grandfather clocks for his loved ones, but more than anything, Ken loved his family and friends with every ounce of his being. He will be sorely missed.
Ken is lovingly remembered by his two sons, Rus Lovo of Lafleche, SK; Glen Lovo of Lafleche, SK; his daughter Vivian Lovo and her fiancé Rick Berkley of Calgary, AB; ten grandchildren; and seventeen great-grandchildren. He is also survived by his five sisters, Ethel, Vera, Florence, Norma and Hazel; and his brother Bob. Ken was predeceased by his beloved wife and soul-mate, Rosie; his daughter Dawnna; his daughter-in-law Linda; his mother and father Grace and Olaf; his sisters Helen and Fern; and his brothers Calvin and Don.
