KASIMIR (KEN) JOHN KOLLINGER March 22, 1932 - May 6, 2008
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ken beloved husband, father and grandfather.
Ken is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Mabel; daughters Christine (Brad), Diane (Bill); son Ken (Nancy); grandchildren Kayla, Tyler, Karlee and Kristee; sister Emily; brother Benny; and numerous friends.
Kasimir was born in Poland and came to Canada after the War. He worked for the railway for 35 years and was fortunate to enjoy over 20 years of retirement with his family sharing his love of gardening, fishing and oil painting. His paintings grace the homes of many family and friends. His outgoing giving nature, good hearted humour and his tremendous wisdom will forever live on.

DEAREST DAD AND GRAMPA
The hardest thing in life to bear, To want you Dad and you're not there. With a broken heart we whisper low, We love you Dad and miss you so. As long as we live, we'll always be glad That we were your children and you were our Dad. Peacefully sleeping, resting at last, Your weary trials and troubles are past; In silence, you suffered, With such patience you bore, 'Til God called you home to suffer no more. "God be with you, till we meet again."
