Obituary

Ken was born on the homestead where he lived on August 10, 1931, the youngest of 5 children. He loved the farm, continuing to farm all his working life. He had a love of sports, playing, coaching and participating at board levels. He was part of the Nokomis hockey team that won Provincial “C” playoffs in 1967. He was also very proud of making the SK Sr. Team for the Canadian Golf Nationals in 1987. Ken attended many golf events over the years and made many friends through sports.
Ken met Ruth in Nokomis and married in December 1957. It was a match made in heaven, they had 7 children with everyone working together on the farm. Ken & Ruth, with friends enjoyed many golf holidays seeing new countries and many new golf courses. Ken believed in hard work but also insisted that everyone needed to have some fun in their lives too.
Ken was very community minded, helping with other volunteers to build the golf course and the current Rec facility. He was always there to help neighbors if they needed. He was so very proud of all his children and grandchildren, saving any and all newspaper clippings of any events they may have attended or done well at. He was very interested in what everyone was doing and if they had time to golf.
Ken & Ruth spent 20 years of their retirement wintering in Texas where they did lots of golfing, playing cards and having fun with new and old friends. The last couple of years were spent at College Park in Regina where they made more friends, Ken was happy to come “home” for the end of his life, Nokomis was always where he wanted to be. He passed away at Nokomis Health Centre on Nov 2nd after a brief battle with cancer.
Ken is predeceased by his parents, E.J. and Alice Edwards, siblings, Jack (Emma) Edwards, Robert (Peggy) Edwards, Gladys (Cecil) Simpson, Phyllis (Charles) Rennie and parents in law Jack & Wanda Brewer.
He leaves to mourn his wife of 62 years, Ruth, children Lois (Barry) Mortenson, Bill (Ev) Edwards, Judi (Brad) Wearing, Tom (Cheryl) Edwards, Richard Edwards, Jean (Trevor) Blair, Gary (Leah) Edwards, 22 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, numerous nieces and nephews and many friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Nokomis Golf Club or Nokomis Cemetery Committee.
Due to COVID, a private family graveside service will be held on Nov 10th. Fotheringham’s Funeral Service are in care of arrangements.

We remember Ken's warm friendly smile, his "impish" fun loving side, how gifted he was in sports and how he shared those talents. Ken was such a strong positive influence.
With love,

Our condolences to Ruth and her family on there loss of Ken. My remembrance's of Ken were as a Hockey player. As a very young boy watching Ken play senior hockey ot the old old rink on the east side Of Nokomis every one was buzzing about the way Ken played in the waiting room. And then again playing in those great playoff games in the early sixties when Nokomis came back into the Long Lake League. He was always so well thought of by my Dad Mike horbul. It was always great running into him at different functions around Nokomis over the years Again our condolences to the family From Michael and Phyllis Horbul.

Remember Ken as a person having a ready smile, positive attitude with a kind word. Was glad to be able to reminisce with him and another teammate of the 1967 championship hockey team at a function in Nokomis in January 2020. Rest In Peace.
