It is with great sadness that the family of Kenneth August Faul, aged 85 years of Cudworth, SK, announce his peaceful passing on Sunday, November 24, 2019 at Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon.
Ken was born November 7, 1934 to Joseph and Rosie (nee Moorman) Faul in Humboldt, Saskatchewan. Ken grew up on a farm near Dixon and obtained his early education at Dixon School. He completed his high school years at St. Peter’s College in Muenster. Following an early, yet memorable, career working in Yellowknife, Ken returned to Humboldt where he met the love of his life Loreen Kuemper. They were married on October 14, 1958 at St. Peter’s Cathedral in Muenster and with this union they were blessed with seven children. Ken’s lifelong career was with the Co-op Association. He began as a hardware manager in Rosetown, Vernon BC, Quesnel, BC, and Terrace, BC. In 1975, the family returned to Saskatoon where Ken finished his career as a Hardware & Paint Buyer with Federated Co-op. Ken retired in 1994.
In 1995 Ken and Loreen moved to Cudworth to enjoy the small-town atmosphere where it was quiet and serene. This provided a fun and safe place for their grandchildren to come and spend their summer vacations and to enjoy the swimming pool and other activities in the community. Family was always first and spending time with them was #1 in Ken’s book. Ken was a very social man who loved to keep busy and help out wherever he could. They thoroughly enjoyed their life in Cudworth. Ken enjoyed going up town to catch up with friends and the daily talks that went on around a coffee table, he could spend hours visiting with people as they passed by his yard.
In his younger years Ken played College Hockey. In Saskatoon he played with The Old Timers Hockey Team and enjoyed playing badminton. Ken found the most pleasure spending time at the family cottage at Struthers Lake. The family cabin provided many wonderful memories for their children and grandchildren. While at the lake he loved fishing and golfing. While living in British Columbia Ken spent many fun filled hours fishing for salmon on the Skeena River.
Ken was very faithful and devoted to St. Michael’s R.C. Church and was an active member of the Knights of Columbus.
Everyone will miss Ken’s loving personality, friendly smile and his love of story telling.
