January 12, 1956 – April 1, 2014
at the age of 58 years
It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my father Kenneth James Maxwell, on the morning of April 1st. He passed on peacefully in his sleep with his family by his side. His kind heart and enduring smile will never be forgotten by those whose lives he touched. He showed us all what true courage and an un-waivering positive attitude can accomplish in the face of adversity when he welcomed his three grandsons into this world. He will always be remembered as a caring brother, loving father, doting grandfather, and a truly caring friend to those near him. His spirit, sense of humour and smile will be gravely missed but never forgotten. A true free spirit. A small private gathering will be held in Enderby by friends and family to celebrate this wonderful man’s life.
