John Kenneth Oswald
April 7, 1965 – November 29, 2020
It is with the greatest sadness I have to announce the passing of my best friend and husband, Ken Oswald. Ken was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on April 07, 1965 and passed on November 29, 2020 in Victoria, B.C.
Ken loved Victoria, this was his home. He also loved cooking. Ken’s whole career was spent cooking at various Victoria restaurants doing what he loved most. The friends and ‘second’ family bonds that he made remained a cherished part of his life. His greatest joy was sharing the joy and his knowledge of cooking.
Ken had a son named Chris at a very young age. They lost touch over the years, but they would connect back and forth once in a while. He loved Chris and his two grandsons dearly, and though they were apart, the love remained.
Ken is predeceased by his father and his beloved grandfather. I am certain that Ken is riding the tractor on grandpa’s knee at his Colorado farm. That is the image I want to remember-Ken, happy and free with those he loved.
Ken’s sisters Theresa and Vicky, his mom Pat and I, Cassy will miss him dearly. We know he is no longer in pain and we send him off with all our love.
May his spirit soar.
A private gathering with close family will be held at a later date.
