Obituary for Kenneth "Ken" Freeman

Kenneth "Ken"  Freeman
Kenneth Freeman passed away peacefully on Friday, September 1, 2017 at the Watrous Health Complex (Manitou Lodge) at the age of 93 years.

Ken was born October 23, 1923 at Simpson (SE 18–29–25 W2), the youngest child of David and Sarah (Beale) Freeman. He married the love of his life, Marguerite (Turcotte) on January 21, 1946.

Ken had an interesting and varied life. He farmed, then he decided he would buy grain with the McCabe Grain Company (later UGG). Once again, he made a career change and began working at the Simpson Credit Union becoming manager and continuing in this position until his retirement after 17 years.

Ken was always a volunteer in the community of Simpson and spent a number of years as coach or manager of the Simpson Flyers, during which time the Flyers were provincial “D” Champs, a source of pride for him. He was also on numerous boards and served in various capacities. He was the Mayor of Simpson for a number of years.

Ken spent precious time with family especially during seeding and harvest helping when called upon. He also enjoyed any family get together. The grandchildren each have their favorite memories as he took them (two at a time) on vacation trips with him. We will always remember his whistling, singing and great love of poetry.

Ken is survived by his sons Gabriel (Paula), George (Yvette) and his daughter Patricia Klenk. His grandchildren Greg (Rachelle - Nicolas,Caleb and Arielle); Derek (Laurie – Jenna); Curtis (Julie – Riley); Randy (Sara - Zak and Kira); Denny (Joslin- Kayden, Rylan and Kylee); Kelly (Jen - Kohen and Brady); Tyler and Kerry Freeman; Kenneth (Adelle - Landon and Jordan) Klenk; Karen Klenk (Bryden, Cole, and Logan). Sisters in law, Rita Turcotte, Germaine Turcotte and brother-in-law Ray Benoit, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Ken was predeceased by his parents, loving wife Marguerite, son-in-law Marvin Klenk, brother Jack (Janet), sister's Grace (Clarence) Alton, Lillian (Richard) Clark, Irene (Timothy) Clark and in-laws Rita Benoit, Osias and Gertrude Roy, Gabriel, Joseph and Anatole Turcotte as well as a niece, Caroline Abrey and great nephews Dean Heinrichs and Todd Pidhorodetsky.

The Memorial Service will be held at Simpson Community Hall on Saturday, October 21st, 2017 at 2:00 pm . Interment will take place in Simpson Cemetery . For online condolences, tributes or to make a donation to the Simpson Cemetery Fund in his memory please visit
