Obituary for Kenneth McElrea

Kenneth McElrea
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Kenneth Samuel McElrea on Thursday February 8, 2017 at the Concordia Hospital.

Ken was born September 21, 1923 in Winnipeg where he spent his entire life. He was predeceased by his loving wife Jean (nee Smith) brothers Art and Bill and sisters Mildred and Phyllis. He is survived by numerous nieces and nephews.

Ken worked at odd jobs during the Great Depression doing deliveries on a bike to driving a produce truck.
In 1941 he started with the CPR as a wiper but country called and he joined the Royal Canadian Navy and served overseas on a Corvette - HMCS Summerside as a radar operator and witnessed the D Day Landing.

After the war he returned to Winnipeg and the CPR. At that time he noticed a young lady who walked by the house on Lipton Street. Jean became the love of his life and they were married August 31, 1950. They had 58 wonderful years together spending many summers at their cottage at Victoria Beach and in the winters skating at the duck pond at Assiniboine Park. They lived life to the fullest whether it be meeting new friends traveling the world or relaxing with friends at Victoria Beach with its sign "The Merry Macs”.

The family would like to thank all the staff at Concordia Hospital for their love and compassion,
Renee, Terri, Tanya, Deb and Staff at Kildonan House and a special thanks to Dr. Fletcher.

Cremation has taken place and there will be a Celebration of Life at Neil Bardal Funeral Centre, 3030 Notre Dame Avenue across from Brookside Cemetery on Friday February 24, 2017 at 1:30 PM.

In lieu of flowers, a donation in Ken's memory can be made to the Salvation Army, 203-290 Vaughan Street, Wpg, MB, R3B 2N8 or Siloam Mission, 300 Princess Street, Wpg, MB, R3B 9Z9.
