Obituary of Kenneth Melvin Harris

HARRIS, Kenneth Melvin – Peacefully surrounded by loved ones, Kenneth Harris died at St. Joseph’s Hospice, on  November, 2, 2021 at the age of 74.  Beloved husband of 49 years of the late Joyce Harris (Feb. 21, 2021). Loving and devoted father of Mandi, Glenn (2010) and Todd (2019).  Cherished grandfather of Aidan and Jude Harris and Canadian father of Eva Watanabe, Japan.  Loving son of Joseph Milroy Harris (1991) and Margaret Harris (1965), Stepmother Lillian Buchanan/Harris (1986).  Dear brother of Allan Harris (1975) (Susan Savoni), Kay Woods, Jenny Anderson, Joyce (Rod) Arnot, Linda (John) Young, Shirley Kemsley and Don (Collette) Harris.  Son In Law to Muriel and Emile Thisdelle (2001).   Brother-in-law of Ron, Daryl, Randy and Paula Thisdelle (Helmer Gonzales).  Also survived by many nieces and nephews. 


Ken was a man of many talents and many virtues. He could exceed your expectations in any task or any sport he partook in, and then make a witty joke about how easy it was. He was a man, above all, that was dedicated to his family. Throughout his life he made so many sacrifices for those he loved, and if you asked him to do it all again; he would do it in a heartbeat. He was an incredible husband, a wonderful father, and the perfect grandfather. He made such an impact on all of our lives and helped shape us into the people we are today.  Ken will be missed and held close to our hearts for the rest of our lives and beyond.
