Steward, Kenneth Charles –
With heavy hearts, the family of Kenneth Steward announces his peaceful passing at the Parkland Embassy Hall, Quispamsis, on Tuesday, March 19, 2019. We rejoice in knowing that Ken will now be with his Lord & Saviour, Jesus Christ. Ken was born in London, ON, on January 7, 1931 to the late Elizabeth (Donaldson) and Frederick Steward.
Ken served his country in the Canadian Armed Forces, R.C.E.M.E. Corps for 25 years, retiring in 1971 to enter civilian life. He worked at the Irving Refinery, Army Reserves, Bricklin, Irving Pulp & Paper and NB Power before retiring at the age of 61 due to health problems.
Ken’s greatest joy was giving his life to his Lord Jesus at age 47 and continued to serve God faithfully for the next 41 years. He was an active member of Mission Point Church in Saint John.
Ken leaves behind his loving wife of over 67 years, Louise (Hancox); loving sons Mark (Susan) and Matthew; grandchildren Victoria, Scott, Robert and Terri; great-grandchildren Brooklyn, Jaeda, Jake, Jaclyn, Jones, Lexi and Lucas.
