Kenneth Roger Newham

Ken was born in Moosejaw, Saskatchewan on October 28, 1942 and passed away on April 5, 2018 in Nanaimo, BC at the age of 75 years.

Lovingly remembered by his wife Gwen, his children Shawn, Lise, Dana (Tina); and all of his grandchildren whom he loved. He is also survived by his two brothers Dale (Gayle) & Dean (Betty), his nieces and nephews.

Ken loved his family and had many great friends throughout his work years. His other great joy was fishing in Campbell River for many years and in later life fishing the Bamfield area.

He will be forever in our hearts …. HAPPY FISHING DAD

I’ve Finished My Chore Assigned To Me,

So Put Me In A River Headed Out To Sea.

You May Send Along My Fishing Pole,

Cause I’m Off To The “Ultimate Fishing Hole”.

To Those Of You Who Think Of Me,

Be As Happy As We Used To Be.

If Anyone Wonders Why I’m Missing,

Just Tell Them I’ve Gone Fishing.
