May 13, 1953 – February 5, 2022
In Loving Memory ~
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ken Melnick on Saturday, February 5, 2022.
Ken was born and raised in Castlegar, BC where he formed many lifelong friendships. Ken enjoyed his work at Teck Cominco and spent his life doing the things he loved: fishing, boating, coaching hockey, looking after his farm, playing his guitar and raising his family.
“Kenny”, to his close friends, was larger than life, making waves and leaving a wake wherever he went. Ken loved his family and we are grateful for the fierce love we received and the adventures we shared. Ken had an undeniable spirit and he will be missed.
Predeceased by his parents Steve & Phyllis, Ken leaves behind his wife Susan, his children; Anna (Jared) Drew (Sara) and Jay, and three grandchildren, Lily, Ellen and Madeline. He also leaves behind his brother Robert (Tova).
Plans for a memorial will follow.Obituary
