KENNETH EDWARD PACHKOWSKY It is with deepest sorrow we announce the sudden passing of Kenneth Edward Pachkowsky on July 20, 2014 at the age of 61. He is survived by his mother Helen, his children Ryan and Chelsey, brother Ron (Corrine), sisters Sheila, JoAnne (Mike), Amy (Calvin), Roberta (Randy), grandson Joshua and numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, and godparents Cliff and Phyllis Sawchyn. He is predeceased by his father Norman, brother Gerry, and brother-in-law Barry. Ken (Ted) was our well-travelled tumbleweed who lived an adventurous life. You never knew what stories he would have to share when you saw him next. From dinners with the Prime Minister to casual BBQs with blockbuster movie stars to flying his own plane, he never failed to amaze. His life as an independent sales representative and audio designer/technician introduced him to some of his many friends across the globe. His more recent work with Resonessence Labs had him jet-setting once again. His passion for music was unsurpassed and listening to his favourite musicians on his cherished West Lake Audio speakers was one of his favourite pastimes. Often a jovial comedian, he always had something clever and witty to say. He was a dreamer, always making new plans and ever so charming. He spent this last year happily travelling the province with his lovely companion Della Vincent-Clark. They loved snowmobiling and as of this summer motorcycling and boating together. They will be greatly missed and we have some small comfort knowing they were doing what they loved together when they left his world, her arms, full of love, wrapped tightly around him. Our family would like to give special thanks to the Lord our God for allowing us the wonderful gift of sharing his final years. We would also like to give condolences to Della's family. The unconditional love and joy she brought to Ken's life left him in awe. A Funeral Service will take place at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, July 26 at Notre Dame du Laus Parish in Powerview. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Children's Make a Wish Foundation or any No Kill Animal Shelter.

  • I met Ken while working as a Property Manager over a year ago. He had very interesting stories to tell from all his travels in his short life. He made friends easily and was a very honest person. It was a pleasure to work with him. His life was oh so short, he lived it to the fullest. My thoughts and prayers to both families and may their memories help you through the difficult days to come...rest in peace Ken and Della.. - Posted by: Maureen Paskaruk (co-worker) on: Aug 07, 2014

  • Ken, we will miss you every day for the rest of our lives. You brought a smile to our face and joy to every person you touched with your extraordinary sense of humor. We are often confused by God's plan. It is our thought that Heaven was in need of some humor so God brought you home early to liven things up. Dear friend, rest in peace. Our deepest condolences to Ken's family. Our hearts are with you. - Posted by: Larry & Michelle Fields (Dear friends) on: Jul 26, 2014

  • Uncle, we all miss you very much. You have impacted my life more then you could have imagined. I have the job I love and cherish everyday, and thats in large part because of you. Thank you very much for introducing me to your late friend Drew Duff who retired a captain with the Winnipeg Fire Department. Everytime I think about my career as a firefighter and where the journey started you are always the first person who comes to mind. We all love you very much! - Posted by: Jamie, Kim, Shea and Emery (Nephew and family) on: Jul 24, 2014

  • We had the pleasure of meeting Ken a few years back when he lived in Mexico. He became an instant friend with his coy smile and little chuckle when things pleased him. He would drop by most afternoons, some times for a brief moment or often stay on through dinner and we were always happy to see him and spend time with him. We made a lot of memories in those few short years when he lived in Mexico and then .... he moved on. We kept in touch but it was not the same as his daily "drop ins" to say hello and ask us how we were doing. Golfing, fishing, fixing our stereo or satellite, drinking a nice bottle of wine or enjoying a dinner, he was comfortable and always fun to be around. We will miss him very much. Happy trails to you our dear friend. - Posted by: Wendy and Jacques Beaudoin (Friends from Mexico) on: Jul 24, 2014
