Obituary of Kenneth James Heath

Ken James Heath, born December 10, 1959 in Thunder Bay has sadly lost his battle with cancer on March 27th 2020 in Saskatoon SK. He leaves behind his daughters Burgandy (Keith) and Kendra (Chris), three beautiful grandchildren Ayva (5), Emma (3) and Ryker (2), the mother of his children Wanda Sagriff and siblings Angela (Dom)Foucault, Cathy (Dean)Main and John (Angie) Heath. He was predeceased by his parents Jim and Helen Heath.

Ken was a skilled carpenter and tradesman who learned to build houses at a very young age with his father. He took great pride in the work he did and loved to share these talents with his family, friends and coworkers. If you needed something fixed, built or figured out he was always more then happy to lend a hand. Ken was a creative and inventive man, always finding a way to fix the problem you didn’t even know you had. Ken took immense joy in watching his children and grandchildren grow up. He had fun spending time teaching the children about the tools in the garage and toolbox or about the different plants and bugs out in the yard. He loved to play and explore new things with his grandchildren always looking for the opportunity to show them something new.

Ken was a strong man who took on many challenges alone. For years he has battled daily pain caused from Polymyalgia and most days you would never know he was fighting it and the same holds true for his fight with cancer.  There were many days that it was a struggle for him to get up and out of bed but he did making sure to join all family events, holidays or birthday celebrations. He may not have always stayed long but he made sure to show up with a smile and to share some friendly banter. Kens motto to us was always kick or be kicked and that is exactly what he did right to the very end. He is now finally able to rest and be pain free but will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts and memories.
