Obituary Picture_K_Thompson
1952 ~ 2015

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Ken Thompson, beloved husband of Wendy, announce his passing at the Medicine Hat Hospital on Thursday, July 30, 2015, at the age of 63 years. Along with his loving wife, Wendy, Ken leaves to cherish his memory: three children, Ryan, Kristie (Joe) and Julie (Neil); sister, Diane (Ron) Evans; brother, David Thompson; sister-in-law, Lori Thompson; nephew, Chad Thompson; cousin, Brenda (Elliot) Wach as well as special friend, Don. He was predeceased by his parents, one brother, Brian as well as his pet dog, Boomer. Ken was very easy to talk to, and shared his great sense of humour with everyone he met. He enjoyed photography and took many beautiful pictures with his camera. He also enjoyed the relaxation that came with tending to his garden or just kicking back to some of his favorite tunes, old-time country & Rock. Interment will take place in Morris, Manitoba at a later date. A come and go celebration of Ken’s life will be held in the coming weeks. Once confirmed, the day and time of the celebration will be posted with the obituary on Cook Southland’s website. The family wish to extend their heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Foley, nurses and staff on Palliative Care for the exceptional care provided to Ken during his time there.
