Obituary

Stenberg. Ken

Ken Stenberg passed away peacefully with friends and family by his side on Sept 26 2018 at the age of 75.
Ken was born Jan. 6 1943 to Bert and Olga Stenberg in Big Valley, He was the eldest of 4 and very much a responsible care giver to all the younger ones around. It didn't matter if they were siblings, cousins, friends or neighbors he watched out for them all.
He enjoyed hunting, fishing and traveling; he discovered all of these at quite a young age. Hunting gophers and ravens for money as well as partridges and rabbits to eat. He was around 12 years old at the time and continued both, as an adult, but the game became larger. He discovered traveling was fun when he went to B.C. and the U.S.A. with his Uncle Ed Barry. Ken saw much of Canada and the States, both with work and vacations.
Family and friends were always very important to him; he kept in touch with everyone. Later in life Ken’s emails and Facebook posts were something to look forward to by many.
He worked at many jobs growing up, some in Calgary as well as helping Uncle Ivan Stenberg with haying. In his early 20's he started working in the oil patch, he did that for the remainder of his working years.
Ken was predeceased by his wife Lee Ann Stenberg ( Skjonsberg), of almost 50 years, his brothers Carl and Terry, sisters-in-law Carol Davies and Linda Scaber, brother-in-law Willy Scott
Ken is terribly missed and lovingly remembered by his daughter Lora, his son Jason, grandsons Kaylib and Maxx, adopted daughter-in-law Amanda Greenwood all of Rocky Mountain House. Ken's sister Gloria (John) McCauley of Barhead, sister-in-law Liduina Stenberg of Red Deer, sister-in-law Gwen Stenberg of Stettler, sister-in-law Bev Scott of Grande Prairie, brother-in-law Rodger (Ursula) of Bentley, brother-in-law Phil Davies of B.C., brother-in-law Ken Schaber of Olds, as well as many other family and friends. Ken's Uncle Ed Barry of High River, his Aunt Dale in Ont., and cousin Chuck living in Vancouver all held a special place in his heart, and received many of his e-mails and phone calls.
No service will be held. Cremation was entrusted to Rocky Mountain Crematorium, Rocky Mountain House, AB.

Condolences

Lisa Horth:
Sincerest condolences Jason and Family.
My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
Stewart Stephanson:
After moving into our unit a couple of doors down from Stenbergs six years ago, I got to know Ken well. We had many visits on
his drive way, usually him sitting in his bronco, lap top close by, yes I know, he liked to keep in contact with family and friends.
Many things were discussed, our days of youth at rural locations in central Alberta, yes, the gopher hunting and crows and Magpies collected for the tails and legs, we were Bounty Hunters for sure. Adventures of family and work were recalled, and Kens unique laugh and chuckle as memories were shared, was always special. I’ll miss those times I used to visit talking to him thru his door window rolled down.
Condolences to Lora and Jason, and Kens family and friends.
Stew
Chuck:
Happy Trails Ken, from the Roy Rogers song that you and I joked about.
Simon and Marnie Paquette :
So sorry Lora and Jay ...he was a good man .
Hugs !!!
