CZETTISCH, Kenneth Michael 'Ken' Czettisch Obituary | Print |

CZETTISCH, Kenneth Michael 'Ken' -

(June 22, 1942 - April 24, 2015) Gone: 72 years, 4 months, 24 days.

With profound sadness we said goodbye to our special father to Amy & Andrew, grandfather to Asher & Ellis, brother to Louise & Joe and uncle to Brent & Jason.

He was born in Flin Flon, Manitoba in 1942 to Luisa and Mike Czettisch. Graduated in 1965 from St. Paul’s College of the University of Manitoba. Moved to Oakville, Ontario in 1977 with Ford Motor Company. Known best for his short answers and honest truths. Unless it was a topic worth discussing, he kept his words brief.

To say he was sincere is an understatement. Genuine, relaxed, and always himself. He was a modest and humble man, who took simple pleasure in simple things. Never shy of the sun, a book, or an ice cold beer, Ken knew how to unwind. He was charismatic and reliable, and lived life according to his own moral code; a leader in his own right.

Forever in our minds is his fondness for Flin Flon and love of the north with his annual fishing trips to Plummer’s Lodges mainly at Great Slave Lake and Great Bear Lake with his closest friends Chummy Plummer and Gerry Little. Ken's time at the Ford Motor Company is where his creativity was most apparent as he left his mark on both the industry and those he worked with.

Cancer was diagnosed early March and although his death came quickly on April 24, 2015, Ken organized all possible details himself in true Ken-fashion. He was cared for thoughtfully at Ian Anderson House in Oakville and was surrounded by those he loved. He was appreciative of all the attention and care bestowed upon him both at IAN and Credit Valley Hospital and was peaceful and stoic until the very end. Ken said he was ready to bow out. To all his dear friends Ken says, “Sayonara”.

Funeral mass will take place on Wednesday, April 29th at 10:30 am at St. Andrew Roman Catholic Church, 47 Reynolds Street, Oakville, Ontario.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Ian Anderson House Foundation at www.ianandersonhouse.com or the Canadian Cancer Society at www.cancer.ca in his name, would be greatly appreciated.

ALKEN, Katharina & Achim -

Alken_Katharina_AchimOn April 21, 2015 we said goodbye to Katharina Alken (Muth) at the age of 79, one short week after her husband of 53 years, Achim, passed away.

Katharina is survived by her three children, Peter (Susan), Bernhard, and Barbara, two grandchildren, Diane and Andrew, her brother Willi Muth (Linde) of Oberbiel, Germany, and sister Anna König (late Oswald) of Hüttau, Austria.

Kathi came to Canada in the late 1950’s with masterful skills as a seamstress, and met Achim in Hamilton. After retiring from The Bay in 2000, Kathi devoted her time and talents to leading the Lutheran Women’s Group at St. John’s Lutheran Church. She enjoyed all opportunities for fellowship, was a passionate sports fan, and was eager to share her love of the Arts, especially music, with everyone she met.

Together Achim and Kathi lived a courageous life, persevering in difficult times and celebrating the best days with unending hospitality for all who came to their door. Kathi brought those same instincts to her journey with cancer, appreciating God’s grace in every day she was given. Her absence will be felt by all who knew her and loved her.

The family especially wants to thank the staff and volunteers at Bob Kemp Hospice for their exemplary care and attention.
