STOBER, Kenneth Michael

May 22, 1958 – Calgary, AB
March 22, 2014 – Aldersyde, AB

Kenneth Stober of Aldersyde, AB, passed away suddenly on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at the age of 55 years.

Ken grew up in Calgary and worked for Telus until his retirement. During this time, he purchased an acreage and began cultivating his love of working on the property and developed a tree farming business. He loved working with his tractor and rototiller, keeping his property immaculately groomed. Ken loved the time he shared with his beloved dogs Lady, Bud and Bear. Weekends were generally celebrated with his cocktail hours. Ken was a caring and giving man to whom his family could always count on. It is with great sadness that we mourn his loss and he will be deeply missed by those whose lives he touched.

Ken is survived by his sister and brother-in-law Theresa and Thomas Stolzenberg, their children Michael and Caitlynn, all of Calgary, nephew Steven Kramar of Salmo, BC, his auntie Irene Lau of Calgary, Ken’s cousins Chris Bost (Michael) of Calgary, Eddie Lau (Shannon) of Surrey, BC and Eric Lau (Leanne) of Saskatoon, SK. He was predeceased by his parents Martin and Mary Stober and his older sister Barbara Kramar.

A Celebration of Ken’s Life will be held at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Kenneth Stober, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Calgary, AB, T2S 2L5, Telephone: 403-243-8200.

  1. So sorry to hear about Ken. I remember Ken mostly from junior high, from 1970 to 1973. A bunch of us from St. James Jr. High used to play pickup football on Friday nights on a big patch of grass on the other side of the fence from the Glenmore football field, where there was just enough light from the high school games. Ken was by far the biggest and strongest of us, and most times it took three or four of us to tackle him. But he was a good sport about it, and didn’t play rough or get mean with us smaller guys. Occasionally, someone would yell an anguished and exasperated “Stober!” when he was carrying two or three of us on his back, with another being dragged by a leg, but he wouldn’t go down. He was a kind character. RIP. You are fondly remembered.

    I met Ken through a mutual friend during my high school years. Although I only knew him a very short time, he was like a big brother to me and I have very fond memories of him. Very sorry for your loss. Ken is gone far too soon.

    We both wanted to extend our sincerest condolences to the family of Ken. Ken helped our family with harvest for several years. He gave 100% and caught on quick to the ways of farming, despite never being a farmer. We appreciated his help and will miss him dearly.
