Date of Passing: Apr 21, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
KENNETH JOSEPH SEEPISH
Ken was born in Winnipeg and attended St. Alphonsus and Miles Mac Collegiate. For 35 years Ken worked for the City of Winnipeg in arenas and swimming pools. He truly enjoyed his job and being with the public. He simply loved being with people, telling jokes and drinking coffee.
In his retirement years moving to Sandy Hook gave him an opportunity to enjoy birds, biking, walking and cross-country skiing. His love of beer, coffee, the Stones and telling jokes was well known. Ken loved hockey, golf and especially tennis. He always looked forward to his two brothers' visits and calls from Cousin Bill, talking about the good old days.
Left to cherish his memory is his beloved wife and best friend, Dana, also her two sons, Chris (Alana) and Jeff (Kareen), two very special grandchildren, Haley and Owen. He was so honoured to be called Gido. His brothers and sisters, Wayne, Frank, Tom, Theresa, Diane, Linda, Marie and many nieces and nephews - all of whom will miss him greatly. He was predeceased by his mother, father and nephew.
I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Homik and Debbie, and to Palliative Care for all of their support and kindness.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, cremation has taken place and a private service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be sent to Canadian Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation, cpff.ca/donations.

Condolences & Memories (15 entries)
Our dear brother Ken....A fond memory of Ken that really stands out in my mind happened on a very cold winters day, a long time ago. Living on Jamieson we had quite a ways to get to school on foot. The snow was so deep as we set out from our back door heading to the lane. Ken of course, being my big brother, was ahead of me making a path for me to follow. Follow I did, trying my best to step in his foot prints in the deep snow of the back lane. I remember how exciting and fun it was trying my best to fill the indentations of his foot prints in the sparkling, white snow. Winter was cold and fun when we were kids and I'm happy my brother was there making a trail. Now Ken's made another trail for us to follow one day. Love you so much Ken. My deepest condolences Dana. - Posted by: Linda Seepish (Sister) on: May 21, 2021
Ken was a friend of my late husband (Eddy). I remember Ken as a very nice guy who was always smiling and always had a funny story. Eddy was also good friends with Wayne. My heartfelt sympathies to the Seepish family. - Posted by: Elaine Tuchonowski (Friend) on: Apr 26, 2021
Ken was truly a special guy. He was my family but he was also a truly good friend. He was good natured, funny, kind, generous and so much more. I know he enjoyed his years with the city and he loved the retired life he had with Dana at Sandy Hook. When he met Dana he found his soul-mate and he was a loving and caring husband to her. This world is just a little less now that he has gone. He will be missed. - Posted by: Bill Temereski (Cousin and friend) on: Apr 26, 2021

Dana I am very sorry that you lost Ken who was such a great person, husband, gido, and brother. He was a great example of how a person should be. He was kind, caring and helped me a lot in my life. I know he will be missed greatly and I am so sorry I didn't get out there to see him. I just want to say Ken I love you and us guys just never say it to each other like we should. Take care my brother will miss you and will always love you. Your baby brother Tom. - Posted by: Tom (Brother) on: Apr 25, 2021
Hi Dana, Sorry to read about Ken's passing. Was just thinking of you the other day while going along the Terry Fox trail in the park that we tried to stay fit on during our lunch breaks. Hope you will enjoy your many happy memories and that you keep well during these crazy Covid times. Once your life settles into a calmer time-I'd love to chat. I'm still working as a gardener at the park. cell# 204-333-5253 Thinking of you & your family. Hugs - Posted by: Betty Ann Blair (friend of Dana) on: Apr 25, 2021
You will be missed. Our friendship was ever lasting. The fires at our home in Sandy Hook where everyone told jokes & had a few drinks laughing all the time we have great memories - Posted by: Ken & Dreen Fetterly (Friends) on: Apr 25, 2021
I was saddened to learn of Ken's passing this week. Ken always had such a positive demeanour, and was so always generous with greetings and conversation every time I saw him in my frequent walks down our Sandy Hook lane. He exuded joy, even through his difficult health challenges over the years. Godspeed, Ken, and my deep condolences to Dana and family. - Posted by: Art Zuke (Sandy Hook neighbour) on: Apr 25, 2021

My condolences to the Seepish family. I worked with Ken for a number of years before his retirement.. RIP Ken - Posted by: Dennis (Glowasky ) on: Apr 24, 2021
So sorry to hear of Ken’s passing. We met in 1975 at the River East arena and continued working together when we both moved to pools. He was such a nice guy and we had many laughs at work and all our work parties, usually at Sharon Sandy’s house. I was blessed to be at Ken and Dana’s wedding and have stayed friends for all these years. Dana my heart breaks for you and I know exactly how you feel. You can rest easy knowing Sharon will be looking after our “boys” till we can all be together again. Love you call if you need anything. - Posted by: Terry-Lynne Hause (welling-skorodenski) (Friend) on: Apr 24, 2021
