After a long, hard fought battle with Multiple Sclerosis, we are deeply saddened to share the loss of our dear brother, Ken Sangster, who passed away, April 14, 2015 at the age of 64 years.
He was predeceased by his grandparents and his parents, J. Donald and Lynne M. Sangster. He is survived by his brother, Don (Angie), and his sisters, Terry (Allan) and Naomi (Pete); his nephews and nieces, Chris, Joe, Phoenix, Madison and Peter; his great nephews and niece, Riley, Hunter and Mackayla as well as many aunts, uncles and cousins.
Ken grew up in Medicine Hat working summers painting homes in Suffield or running the Medicine Hat Youth Hostel. He graduated from Crescent Heights High School and went on to get his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Calgary. Addiction counselling was his career choice while living in Calgary. Upon returning to Medicine Hat and not able to work anymore he chose to give freely of his time and talents continuing to help others. He was a talented artist despite his own critiques. Ken was a gentle soul and loved by many. He stayed connected with many dear friends all over the world. The family would like to sincerely thank Dr. Jeraj and the kind and loving staff at Havenview Long Term Care that made Ken’s final days as comfortable as possible.
The funeral mass will be celebrated in St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church (238 2nd Ave N.E.) on Saturday, April 18, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. with Fr. Alphonse Narisetty celebrant. Interment will follow in the Hillside Cemetery.
