Ken Lister ~ At Twin Oaks of Maryhill on Wednesday, November 28, 2018, Mr. Kenneth Francis Lister of Pike Lake, formerly of Burlington, in his 84th year.
Husband of Janet Murphy. Father of Darlene and Terry McAlpine of Burlington, and stepfather of Nicholas and Rosa Loess of Guelph. Grandfather of Dylan, Meghan, and Natalie. Beloved fur-daddy to Jasper. Remembered also by his brothers-in-law Jim Love of Burlington, and Kenneth and Barbara Harrity of Nova Scotia, and their families.
Ken was as Canadian as they come. When he passed he was carried out of the nursing home covered in his Toronto Maple Leafs blanket. If you watched Ken in the garden, you’d glimpse a man full of care, and compassion for the soil and the plants it yielded. He loved cooking and canning what he grew, with his beloved wife, Janet. He tried really hard at golf, and loved the peace and solace of fishing. May he find that peace and solace wherever he is now. He will be remembered for all these things, but most of all, for showing generosity and care for those he loved, for being thankful for time shared, and ultimately, coming out at the end, a kind man, with a full heart. Goodbye, Ken.
A Celebration of Ken’s Life will be held at Mount Forest United Church on Tuesday, December 4th at 11:00 a.m., with visitation one hour prior.
