(Welsford) Kenneth Herritt
December 20, 1948 – December 5, 2017
With profound sadness we announce the peaceful passing of Ken Herritt at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House in Kamloops on December 5, 2017 with Eleanor at his side.
Ken is survived by his loving wife Eleanor of 32 years. He is also survived by son Adrian (Carolina) and grandchildren Kaylin, Gabe and Nadia of Sterling, Virginia as well as daughter Chrystal (Jeff) and grandchildren Micheal and Anjolina of Calgary, Alberta. He loved them all dearly.
Ken is also survived by mother and father -in-law, Gladys and Harold Honda of Lillooet, B.C. as well as sisters Waynne & Robin (Cliff) and brothers Hugh (Jeanette), Rory (Suzanne), Lionel (Cheryl) and brother in law Dan (Julie) as well as brother in law Gordie (Theresa) and sister in law Sherry. He was predeceased by his parents Wels and Dene Herritt and sister Lori. Also left to mourn is a large extended family and many, many friends.
Together nearly 35 years Ken and Eleanor had many adventures together. Ken's work took them to South Africa for 5 years and then to Australia for 2 years. They also cruised 19 times and managed to get in a few more land vacations as well such as Hawaii, Mexico and the Cook Islands.
As per Ken's wishes, there will not be a service. Cremation will be followed by internment at Hillside Cemetery in Kamloops, B.C.
We wish to thank the doctors and nurses at the Kamloops Cancer Clinic and Royal Inland Hospital 4th Floor North. Ken's final days were spent in the wonderful compassionate care of the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House at 72 Whiteshield Crescent S, Kamloops, B.C. V2E 2S9 – Tel 250-372-1336 or to the Lillooet District Hospital
