Kenneth Laverne Hiebert, 72 years, of Pilger passed away peacefully on Sunday June 13, 2021, surrounded by his family at Royal University Hospital, Saskatoon. Ken was born to Henry and Jean Hiebert (nee Bowman) in Kitchener, Ontario on October 7, 1948. He obtained all of his education in Kitchener. Ken and Bobby-Lou were high school sweethearts, and they were married on April 22, 1967 in Boston, ON. Ken first worked on a tobacco farm and later with his dad at the pickle factory. Ken and Bobby-Lou welcomed Ken Jr. and Charlene into their family and then moved to Alberta where Jason was born. Ken acquired many skills over the years while working at numerous jobs. He had many hobbies; he loved to tinker and work on small engines. Bobby-Lou called him her “handyman”. Ken was also known for being a bit of a “wheeler dealer” as he loved buying and selling cars and trucks. The family enjoyed many holidays across Canada, weekend camping trips, and always looked forward to a campfire and wiener roast. In 2011, Ken and Bobby-Lou decided to move to Saskatchewan. They met many new friends as Ken was a very social man and loved visiting with everyone that he met. There was always time for a game of cards and a few laughs.
Ken will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by his wife of 54 years, Bobby – Lou Hiebert of Pilger; three children and five grandchildren: Ken Jr. (Carolanne) Hiebert of Bengough; Charlene (Darren) Ferraton of Carseland, AB and family Jordan Ferraton (Darrell Felt) of Strathmore, AB and Madison Ferraton of Carseland, AB; Jason (Tina) Hiebert of St. Gregor and family Riley Pierrard of Edmonton, AB Caitlin Pierrard of Naicam and Jayla Hiebert of St. Gregor; brothers Rick & Jean Hiebert of Delhi, ON, Michael (Sharon) Hiebert of Bellville, ON, and Mark Hiebert of Brantford, ON; and by numerous in-laws, nieces and nephews and friends.
