Kenneth Walter James Fournier

May 2, 1946 ~ April 24, 2018 (age 71)

Passed away peacefully in the early hours of April 24th 2018 at Hillcreast Villiage in his 72nd year. He was  surrounded by friends and family, his wife Cathy, daughters Amanda and Christine (Jonathan Killing).  He is survived by his grandchildren Emma and Owen Lamoureux, and Sophie and Kayla Killing, his bother Allen Fournier (Rita) and nieces Tanya Fournier and Melanie Fournier and nephew Patrick Garret (Amanda).  He will be missed by his many great nephews.  He is predeceased by his parents Leo and Irene Fournier, and his sister Brenda Garret. He is a descendent of Genevieve Vasseur and Touissant St.Onge/Letard.

Ken was a lover of all things wild and free.  Hunting, trapping, and fishing were a part of his daily life and even while working he was thinking of being in the bush.  For fun he was a part of a band and often won Battle of the Bands in the '60s and early '70s. If he didn't have a gig there was a party going on at home.

In his younger days he was a carpenter and worked in construction.  As he aged he worked as a Building Inspector starting at Victoria Harbour, and moving to Penetanguishene, and Tay Township finally ending in Georgian Bay Township, where he loved being back to his roots and was able to do his work in the wilderness and was able to travel by boat, Seadoo, Skidoo, and scoot to the homes and cottages to be inspected. He was a man who tried to help people and would be willing to give a hug, lend an ear, give a beer or the shirt off his back if you really needed it.

Celebration of Life will be scheduled at a later date. If desired, memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or Alzheimer's Society would be appreciated and will be received by LeClair Cremation Centre.
