Kenneth Eiichi Ito

1921 – 2015

Dad was born on Salt Spring Island, BC to parents Nakazo and Hatsu. After arriving to Alberta he endured many hardships which he overcame. He married his wife of 70 years, Sueko Hikida on August 1, 1945 in Raymond, AB. Together they raised 5 children; June, Ron (Sheila), Dennis (Chris, deceased), Janet (Steve) and Irene.

He was a hard worker and a good provider for his family. Dad was a quiet man who always thought the best of everyone. Whether greeting friends old or new he always had a ready smile. He had two passions which he excelled at; gardening and fishing.

He is survived by his loving wife, children, 10 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren; and sister-in-law Marge Hikida.

Special thanks to his medical staff and caregivers who assisted him in his later life.
