Kenneth RoenspiesMarch 22, 1928 – April 27, 2015Ken was born on March 28th, 1928 and was raised on the family farm along with his ten siblings. After leaving the farm, he took up many jobs in Ontario with the logging industry. He returned to help on the farm every summer, while spending the weekends playing softball. Ken met Bernice Schumacker in 1950 and they were married in 1954. He joined the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals in 1955 after serving as communications operator, and then a cryptographer, in Kingston, Ontario. In June, 1961, he was transferred to Whitehorse, Yukon and was later joined by his brothers Ross and Joe. All three brothers were avid sports enthusiasts and played softball for the city team, even being named Yukon softball champs. Living in Yukon also gave the family the opportunity to pursue their other favourite pastime – fishing. After multiple moves and promotions, Ken was given his final retirement posting. He missed many family gatherings over the years, therefore he chose Dana, Saskatchewan to be close to family and friends. He officially retired from the Canadian Forces in 1978 and spent a year as Sergeant Major of the Canadian Forces Reserve Communications troop out of HMCS Unicorn, Saskatoon. Still too young to retire, he spent ten years as a correctional officer in Saskatoon. Ken enjoyed many hobbies and sports including, golf, curling, bowling, hockey, football, tennis, baseball, softball, and last but not least, fishing and camping. His love of animals introduced the family to a wide range of "pets" from Jimmy the skunk, a chipmunk and her four babies, raccoons, and a variety of more conventional species like dogs, cats, and horses. And where does the acorn fall! Ken and Bernice loved taking the granddaughters on their annual camping trip, perhaps to gain an extra couple limits, but mostly to teach them to enjoy and appreciate the great outdoors. His "colourful" fishing tunes are a fond memory for all the girls. Ken will be known and remembered as a loving father and grandfather, who was also an amazing cook and baker. He loved to entertain, tell stories and jokes, and was always the life of the party. Both he and Bernice loved to travel and support the grandkids in their hobbies, whether it was dog shows, horse shows, or dance recitals, his presence was always felt and appreciated. Ken leaves behind his children, Kerry, Shane, Lori (Garry Pozniak); seven grandchildren, and nine great-grandchildren. He was predeceased by his wife, Bernice; his parents; some of his siblings, and numerous other friends and relatives. As per his request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you take some time to enjoy all that nature has provided, or attend a Rider game (He would love that!). Condolences may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Arrangements have been entrusted to SASKATOON FUNERAL HOME (244-5577). - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/thestarphoenix/obituary.aspx?n=kenneth-roenspies&pid=174745033&fhid=6664#sthash.B7SX8Ozk.dpuf
