Kenneth Douglas McCarthy


Please God forgive a silent tear;
A constant wish that he was here;
Others were taken, yes I know;
But he was mine and I love him so.

I am profoundly grieved to announce the passing of my friend, partner and husband of 35 years, Ken, on May 6, 2015 at the Robbins Pavillion, Royal Alexandra Hospital, Edmonton, Alberta.Ken was born to Dorothy Grace McCarthy (Morrison) and Robert Austin McCarthy on Dec. 16, 1954 in Selkirk, Manitoba. In 1980 Ken moved to Victoria, BC, to join his love – Laurie. In 1981 Ken and Laurie moved to Edmonton where they set up their life and home. On May 17, 1986 Ken and Laurie married formally in Selkirk, Manitoba.Ken leaves to mourn in his passing his wife Laurie (Basaraba); best buddies Beau and Gillie; brother Terry (Lorna); nephews Kevin and Thomas; niece Kerry Epps (McCarthy); her husband Todd and family; nephew Robert and his wife Erin; and brothers-in-law Bernie and Carson Basaraba. Ken also leaves an extended family and countless treasured friends in Manitoba and Alberta to forever remember him.In keeping with Ken’s wishes there will be no formal service, however, he wanted those whom he counted dear in life to join Laurie at a Wake on Thursday May 14, 2015 between 4-6 p.m. at Royal Canadian Legion, Norwood Branch. 11150-82 St., Edmonton, Alberta.

Laurie, sending you our heartfelt sympathy and condolences on the passing of Ken. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you grieve this terrible loss. Ken & Ted grew up together and were quite the pair. Ken was in our wedding party when we got married in 1973. He was quite the character, always making you laugh. He will be missed. Take care! We will see you in Lockport.
