Kenneth Burris, 1945 – 2018. (via Drake Cremation and Funeral Services)

Ken was born in 1945 in London, Ont. He owned and operated one of the first go-kart tracks in Canada at Ipperwash beach, Ontario. This source of summer income allowed him to pay for his education, graduating from the University of Western Ontario in 1971. Ken taught elementary school for a few years in London before meeting Connie in Acadia National Park, Maine. They were married 1972 in Kamloops, B.C. Ken worked many years with the Ministry of Children and Family Development primarily as a social worker, retiring in 2002.

Ken enjoyed many sports, running, alpine skiing, water skiing, tennis, badminton, and golf. He especially enjoyed working with his son Paul around the house and visiting with daughter Amy and her family (Gord, Keiann and Blake Nowicki). In retirement, many winters were spent under the sun in Yuma, Arizona and summers at Kamloops Golf and Country Club.

No service has been requested. In Ken’s remembrance, please engage in an act of kindness to family, friends or strangers.
