On October 5, 2012, Kenneth Knox passed away at the age of 92 years. He was predeceased by his first wife Norma and his second wife Nancy. Born in Moose Jaw, although having lived and worked as a Chemical Engineer in other places across Canada and the US, Ken was a prairie boy at heart. He enjoyed his retirement years living in sunny Medicine Hat with his wife Nancy where he could often be seen walking the coulee trails with his beloved dogs. His love of music and nature, life-long habit of staying physically active, appreciation of a good conversation, sense of humor and gentlemanly ways remained even as his health declined. He will be remembered and missed by family and friends. Ken and Norma had two daughters Karen Boschee, Jacob (son-in-law), Erin, Dana, and Kari (granddaughters) and Cherryl Knox-Lombard (predeceased), Stephanie and Ken (grandchildren) and four great grandchildren. Ken passed away in Edmonton, Alberta where he was living and being cared for by his daughter Karen and her family. The funeral service will be held in the PATTISON CHAPEL on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at 1:30 p.m. Interment will follow in the Hillside Cemetery.

No Condolences for “KNOX”

    I wish so much that I could be there today…But a promise is a promise.

    First of all thank you to my Aunt Karen and all of her family for all of the care that they have given. We’ve been a family separated by distance since I can remember. Karen very bravely nursed Granddad through this. My heart aches for her loss.

    The memories, they just flood my brain.

    Granddad (Puga), was so many things…Always a comedian…always a teacher.

    He was one of the most influential people in my life…I told him that. I don’t know that he really ever believed it. Without his strength though, and his ability to teach us that we can stand on our own two feet, well…who knows. He and I do.

    I love you Granddad…I’ll miss our chats immensely. I’m happy that you are home now, happy and reunited with those that you loved so deeply and that had passed before you.

    Until the next time, all my love…forever and ever. Stephie
