It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ken Petlock on June 3, 2019 at the age of 62 years. Ken was born to Ednot and Rose Petlock on the family farm near Fenwood on November 25, 1956. He grew up farming with his dad, eventually taking over the family farm. During this time Ken met the love of his life, Della Reves, whom he married on June 2, 1978. They enjoyed concerts, gardening and travelling together and just celebrated their 41st wedding anniversary the day before he passed.
Ken enjoyed spending time with his children and grandchildren. They were the centre of his world and he had all of the love in the world for them. He always took the time to teach them practical things and always made them laugh with his “grandpa jokes” and little notes he would write to them.
Aside from the farm, Ken became a Councillor with the R.M. of Stanley No. 215. He was elected Reeve in 2006 and remained Reeve until his passing. He took pride in his work with the R.M. and was known as the local weatherman, still predicting the weather in the old ways like tracking hoarfrost to predict when it would rain.
Ken will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Della; their three daughters, Avery (Rob) Bear, Melissa (Chris) Bryson and Amy Petlock; grandchildren Sarah, Kadence, Ethan, Ashten, Logan, Birdie and Ryker; as well as extended family and anyone who knew him. He was predeceased by his parents Ednot and Rose Petlock; his in-laws Albert and Matilda Reves; and his brother Dennis Petlock.
