In Memorial

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.


Condolences for the family of “John Kenneth Oswald”

So sorry to hear about Ken’s passing. Although I have not seen him in years I have many fond memories of spending time with him. He was a kind, smart, funny man gone way too soon.

Ken was a big part of my high school experience.
Theme parties, concerts, even tag football, and many many laughs and fond memories.
I will always remember him fondly.

Hi, this is very sad news and I’m sorry for your loss.
Ken and I worked at Pag’s together for at least 8 years.
I have fond memories of Ken in the kitchen doing what he loved and always being so kind.
He will be missed

Kenny was a kid when we met and grew into a lovely man over the years I watched him grow. I never saw him treat anyone without kindness. Kenny was a sweet man.

Condolence from Tony Sprackett on March 19th, 2021 7:52 pm

Oh, I’m so sorry to see this. Ken and I shared lots of good laughs together back in the John’s Place days for us. He was loved by all who worked with him there.

Nothing but good memories of Ken for me.

Kenny was an amazing guy. I worked the line at Pag’s with him, and not a day went by that he didn’t say” Boner! What are you doing?” Lol! Or change the lyrics to a song cause that was how he rolled. As I’ve told Lana, they both shaped the start of my young adult life. Because of him, I gained confidence in life and learned to work hard. There are many other stories I could tell, but number one is he made me become me, and a better person, and he will be missed so much! Kenny, thank you for being you.

I was sorry to learn of Kenny’s passing. He was a good friend of our family for over 30 years. My sincere condolences to Jemi and Ken’s mother and sisters.
