Kenneth Wayne Carson
April 9, 1948 – October 19, 2012
It’s with heavy hearts we announce the passing of a wonderful man, Ken Carson. He was born in Vernon, BC to Vern and Irene Carson. He will be greatly missed by his wife Shirley, sons Glen and Evan (Alicia), sister Elaine (Rodger), nieces Tracy (Curtis) and Paula, and many friends throughout the years.
Ken was diagnosed with advanced non-Hodgkins lymphoma but fought it courageously for almost four years. We are very grateful for the additional time we had with him. He was a diligent genealogist, researching and charting multiple generations of family history. He would light up anytime he dug up a new nugget of information and was anxious to share it with anyone who would like to listen.
The family would like to thank especially Dr. Fredeen, Dr. Katakkar, and “his girls” at the Cancer Care Unit at UHNBC. An afternoon tea will be held on Thursday, October 25 at the Pineview Hall, 6470 Bendixon Rd., Prince George, BC, from 1:00 – 4:00 pm to share any stories or memories. Interment at Pleasant Valley Cemetery in Vernon, BC will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers a donation to the Prince George Hospice Society would be greatly appreciated.
