1945 – 2024

It is with great sadness that the family of Kenneth Joseph Fedyk announce his passing on Tuesday, May 28th, 2024, at his home at Mulberry Estates.

Ken was born in Moose Jaw, SK to Joe and Nellie (née: Billan) Fedyk.  He enjoyed the simple farm life and loved his animals.  He attended school at Expanse and Mossbank, SK.  Ken enjoyed helping his dad on the farm as well as playing hockey, ball, and going hunting. 

Ken married Carol Crosby, the love of his life, in 1964.  They resided in Mossbank and Ken worked at the Salt Plant in Bishopric, SK.  They had one daughter, Melonie born in 1968.  They later moved to his Uncle Bill Fedyk’s farm east of Ardill, SK.  Ken and Caol loved the farm and worked as a team.  He enjoyed being a mechanic, fixing and repairing vehicles and machinery.  All of Ken’s life, he had 100 head of cattle each year. 

Ken and Carol welcomed their first granddaughter, Kelsey Blatchford in 1993.  Melonie married Ken Kamarznuk in July 1997 and had a second grandchild, Carly, and later a great-grandchild in 2019.

In 2016, with Carol’s health issues, they made the decision to move to Moose Jaw.  In 2018, Carol passed away.  Ken struggled but found entertainment watching and feeding the animals in his backyard, especially the one-legged crow.  Neighbours often wondered why their cats were never hungry.

Ken at one time had a funny sense of humour but the last couple years were humbling for him and very difficult to get around.  He continued going for coffee and enjoying his close friends.

He was predeceased by his wife of 54 years, Carol; parents, Nellie and Joe Fedyk; sister, Sherry Demetrioff; and brother, Bob.  Ken is survived by his daughter, Melonie (Ken) Kamarznuk of Moose Jaw, SK; granddaughter, Kelsey (Tanner) Craig of North Battleford, SK; great-granddaughter, Carly of Moose Jaw, SK; sisters, Diane (Dennis) Antonovitch of Assiniboia, SK and Shelley Fedyk of Calgary, AB; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

A Memorial Service will be held on Friday, June 14th, 2024, at 1:00 p.m. in Moose Jaw Funeral Home.  Pastor Marvin Seaborg will officiate, and interment will take place in the moose Jaw Funeral Home Columbarium. 

Those not able to attend may view the service virtually by going to an expression of sympathy, donations in Ken’s name may be made to The Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658 Station Main, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7. 

Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.  Gary McDowell, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
