1927 – 2003
Kon passed away at home on June 22nd. Kon was born in Wilkie, Sask. He spent his youth on the prairies and then went to seek his fortune in B.C. He spent some time in Vancouver and then met his bride Kit in Nelson. The last 40 years, Kon lived the life of Riley in the Cariboo. Kon was an avid fisherman, great dancer, mighty gardener, master winemaker, honest (?) golfer and super storyteller. He was active in the Knights of Columbus, wore a mean tutu and could square dance ‘til dawn. Kon was a wonderful, loving husband and the best dad ever. We will miss you. Here is to a good golf score, green garden and great wine. Kon is survived by Kit, his loving wife; Lorraine (Larry) Gillespie, Cameron, Ryan; Pat (Jeff) Cheek, Steven; Donna (Ron) Gauld, Andrew and Michael.
