Kenneth William Johansen
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kenneth William Johansen on Tuesday, October 13th, 2020 at the age of 88 years. He was predeceased by his parents, Juul and Kirstine Johansen; wife of 46 years, Leona; as well as many of his siblings. Ken is survived by his sons, Micheal (Wanda) Johansen and Bill (Linda) Johansen; grandchildren: Justin, Nikita, and Raelynne; and sister, Mary (Richard) Wiens of Olds, AB.
Ken loved his job working on pipeline projects all across Canada, which enabled him to be home with Lee and his boys for a few months every year. During his at home periods, there was nothing that Ken loved more than working on his Honda cars, taking them from dilapidated pieces of junk and turning them into great running machines. His pride and joy was being behind a wheel of an 18 wheeler and his last truck was “ez muny”.
After his retirement, Ken spent his days having coffee in the morning and afternoon with his many friends. He was well known for his sense of humor and nothing gave him greater pleasure than getting everyone laughing around him. You always knew he was in his element when he gave you that “grin”.
The family would like to thank all the staff at Moose Jaw Extendicare and Crescent Park Retirement home for their compassionate care provided to Dad during his time there. He was happy at both senior homes and enjoyed the staff there.
In keeping with Ken’s wishes, a Private Family Service will be held and interment will take place at Moose Jaw Funeral Home Indoor Columbarium where he will be laid to rest with Leona. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ken’s name may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 1910 McIntyre St, Regina, SK S4P 2R3. Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.
