Obituary

Kenneth William Hodge

August 27, 1961 - November 29, 2021

It is with great sadness that the family of Ken Hodge announce his passing at the age of 60 on November 29, 2021. Ken was a beloved father, partner, brother, uncle, great uncle and friend.

Ken will be deeply missed by his sons Ken (Katie) and Brendan.  Also mourning his loss is his best friend and companion Lucille Gregory and her children and family.  He is survived by his sister Cheryl (Ken) Braun, and their family Jessica, Sam, Miles and Lochley Ehlers, Kristopher, Jocelyn, Everett and Sophia Braun, his brother Brian, and nieces Carmaine (Edan), Tiffany (Joey).

Ken was predeceased by his parents Bill and Eileen Hodge, his brother Mark, niece Katarina, sister in law Julie Hodge and the mother of his children, Sharon Hodge.

Ken was born in Fort William, Ontario.  He was 9 years old when his father was transferred to Winnipeg.  Ken attended Frontenac School, Beliveau Junior High and graduated from Pierre Radisson Collegiate.  He retired from CP Rail after spending 37 happy years with the company.

After his retirement Ken enjoyed many days soaking up the sun at Patricia Beach and many evenings relaxing around a fire at Lucille's.  He travelled to Jamaica with Lucille in 2020 and loved every moment of that trip.

As the oldest of four children he paved the way for his younger siblings.  He always had the best stereo system and an extensive music collection.  He passed his love for music onto his siblings and his children. 

Family meant everything to Ken.  He helped take care of his mother during her battle with cancer and he moved in with his father and was a loving caregiver to his father during his last years. He was a devoted father and so proud of his boys and cherished the time he spent with them. He loved them deeply and would do anything for them.  He was always willing to help anyone in need.

Ken was an avid Blue Bomber fan.  He was a fan ambassador for the Bombers and looked forward to volunteering at their games.  He also volunteered for the Winnipeg Ice and Valor Soccer.

After his retirement Ken and Lucille fostered many puppies and he loved every moment. Every puppy had a special place in his heart.

Thank you to the ACCU doctors and nurses at St. Boniface Hospital for their care and compassion.
