Kenneth Bingham

Born in 1939, passed away peacefully after a courageous battle with leukemia. Predeceased by his mother Elsie and father Stan.

Survived by his loving wife Becky, sons Danny (Melanie), Ken Jr. (Elaine). Also survived by grandchildren Brian (Dianne), Deanna, Ken, KristieAnne, and Christopher. Sister Donna Dionne (Calgary). Father-in-law Reinhold Gerz, sister-in-law Helen (Cliff) Erickson, brother-in-laws Ron (Val) and Detlef Gerz. Also, special friends Mel (Joan) Jacobson, Don Drinkwater, and Mikey Jacobson.

Ken worked as a faller for many years in the Port Renfrew area. His passions in life were fishing and hunting, and long talks with all he met. Ken had a wonderful sense of humor and a contagious laugh.

Ken was at one time involved with the Kowitzun Voyageurs, a black powder rifle club. Ken also enjoyed working with many artistic mediums. He approached all his interests with a special zeal, never content to do anything in half measures. He was a special man who loved his family and friends, and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.

His family would like to invite all his friends to join in a celebration of his life on Saturday, November 10/2007 at 2:00 p.m. at the Lake Cowichan Community Centre. For those wishing, please bring a story.
