Kenneth Larder

Kenneth Larder passed peacefully in Vernon on July 30th, 2012. Ken was born at Bapaume, Saskatchewan on December 29th, 1930. Born the second of five children to Fred and Nellie, he grew up in the country and always remained an outdoorsman. The family moved to Burton, BC in 1949 to start a new life. Ken built roads for most of his working life. He was an avid and accomplished golfer and gardener, involved in his retirement years with the Fauquier and District Golf Club. He was a kind and gentle man of few words, whose strength lifted all around him.

Ken was predeceased by his brothers Cyril and Joe and sister Betty. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Joan Larder, and his children Leanne and Wade.  His brother Eric, his grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews also survive him and will hold his memory dear.

Please join together to remember him and celebrate his life at the Burton Community Hall August 18th from 2pm-5pm.
