It is with great sadness that the family of Kenneth David Kjenner announces his passing on May 24, 2023 at the age of 91 years.
Ken was born January 20,1932 at Frog Lake, Alberta. He was the third of five children born to Fritz and Nellie Kjenner. Ken moved to Ponoka and lived with his Uncle and Aunt when his mother died in 1939. Ken lived in the Asker district for his entire life. Ken married Connie Eastwood October 30,1959 and together they raised their family on the farm. Ken and Connie were very involved in the community, volunteering or serving on the board of the Calumet Curling Club, the Asker Hall, 4-H Beef Club, Mecca Glen School, and St. Mary's Anglican Church. Ken took great pride in the family farm and his herd of Limousin cattle. They sold purebred bulls all over the province.
