Kenneth Gordon Hodgins

-

It is with heavy hearts, and extreme sadness that we announce the passing of Ken
Hodgins of Fort Saskatchewan on December 30, 2014 at the age of 72. Ken fought a
courageous battle with lung cancer and subsequent battle with pneumonia having to
succumb to his illness. He had such a positive attitude the entire 8-month journey.
Ken loved Fort Saskatchewan and spent more than 40 years being involved in the
community. He was a public relations guy who loved people. He was the ultimate host
and everyone loved coming to Uncle Ken’s pool and home.
Ken will be deeply missed by his loving and always supportive wife Sandra, of 50
“wonderful” years (as Ken always said), his children Allene and Darryl (Kris), whom
he was so proud of and the joys of his life, his granddaughters Amanda and Kaitlyn
plus our special friend (daughter #2) Sam Steven.
Ken will be lovingly remembered by his sisters Pat (Doug) Walker, Eleanor (Barry)
Nolt, Karel and sister-in-law Louise. Sandra’s family also loved him and will miss
him – sisters-in-law Donna Winter, Barb (Jack) Drolet, brothers-in-law Chris
(Heather) McLaughlin in Nova Scotia and David (Penny) McLaughlin in Manitoba as well
as numerous cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. His parents Gordon
and Mary Hodgins and his brother Ron Hodgins predeceased him.
Ken will be greatly missed by a multitude of friends through his community work,
including 18 years on The City of Fort Saskatchewan Council, 35 years in the Men’s
Wear Business, the Kinsmen Association, Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce, the
Golf & Curling Club, Beta Sigma Phi Sorority, and St. George’s Anglican Church.
Respecting our wishes, a private family service will be held in January.
As per Ken’s wishes a Celebration of his Life will be held in the spring (date to be
announced) when his snowbird friends have returned, and when the Shell theatre in
the Dow Centennial Centre is available.
Our sincerest thanks are extended to the Staff of the Special Care Unit at the Fort
Saskatchewan Community Hospital and the staff of the ICU Unit at the Royal Alexandra
Hospital in Edmonton.
If you so choose, in lieu of flowers, Donations in Remembrance of Ken may be made to
the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital Foundation, Room 1C – 012, 9401-86 Avenue, Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta T8L OC6 or a Charity of your choice. Gord and Cindy Kadatz managing directors.
