KENNETH FREDERICK BETTESS
April 17, 1939 - July 31, 2022

No more pain peace at last.
Ken has gone to be with his parents, George and Selina; his brothers, George, Edward, Sid, Herb and Jack; as well as other family and friends.

Ken is also survived by his brother David (Marylou), brothers-in-law, Oliver, Trnka, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Ken was deeply religious and was involved as crucifer server and choir member of St. Michael and All Angels and St. Mary Magdalene Anglican Church.
Ken was also involved with Scouting and numerous positions and groups in St. Vital. His call to fame as he called it was being related to Terry Fox and he never tired of bragging about it to whoever would listen.
