Obituary of Kenneth Ralph DeHart
Kenneth Ralph DeHart
Surrounded by love, Ken passed away at Lakeridge Health Oshawa on August 17, 2022 at the age of 72 years.
Much loved husband of Sharlene (nee Cain). Proud dad to Jamie DeHart (Stephanie) and Krystyn Gillingham (Jamie). Adored Papa of Trinity, Eden, Alexis and Brayden. Ken is survived by his sisters Barb Wilson (Tim) and Doris DeHart (Rick Peleshok), sisters in law Lenore Traves (Lorne), Sandra Devolin (Don) and Lorie Pearson (Brad Adams). He will be sadly missed by his nieces and nephews and especially his canine companions, Maddie, Otis and Kali.
Ken had simple tastes in life, he loved to garden and cook and could be found multiple times a day with the dogs at the dog park. His greatest joy was his family, and any moment he could spend with them, especially his 4 grandchildren was time well spent.
The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at Lakeridge Health Bowmanville & Oshawa, especially the dialysis unit for the care shown to Ken and the family over the past years.
At Ken’s request no funeral will be held. A Celebration of his life will be held at The Whitby Curling Club, 815 Brock Street North Whitby on Saturday September 3rd from 12 – 4 pm. In lieu of flowers, Memorial Donations may be made to The Kidney Foundation.
