DANCEY, KennethOn April 18, 2017, Ken Dancey passed away to join with the love of his life, Marlene, and his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Ken is survived by his nine children Kevin (Lori, Megan and Erin), Kim Fletcher (Tannis and Sarah), Karen Hunt (Doug, Gaetan, Maggie, Bradley, Brandon and Samara), Jody Day (Greg), Darrel, Robbie (Tania, Kyle, Amy, Matthew and Jeremy), Dean (Mylene, Andrew, Mathew, Jacob, Joseph, Zachary), David (Colleen Joshua and Sarah) and Byron. Also by his four great-grandchildren Elias and Leyland Hunt; and Tristan and Nixon Dancey. Ken was predeceased by his wife Marlene (November, 2011); his granddaughter Melissa (November 2012); and his parents Tom and Elsie. He is survived by his siblings Betty, Ron, Dennis, John, Donald and Lynne. Ken was born on July 26, 1933 in Delburne, Alberta. He moved to Calgary and met Marlene in 1952, and they were married on November 18, 1955. After his passion for family and love of God, Ken enjoyed the decades of winters he spent in ice rinks teaching and coaching kids the game of hockey. Dozens of community kids speak fondly about Ken being the reason they came to love the game, and they enjoyed the many stories he entertained them with on the many road trips. His summers were spent coaching and watching his kids play baseball and soccer, and enjoying his second home, Pine Lake. In 1994, he retired after 36 years working for the City of Calgary, and moved to the home they built at Pine Lake. They became involved with the local community playing carpet bowling and bocce; participating in both the Alberta Summer and Winter Senior Games, and winning medals in both. Ken will be dearly missed for his unwavering convictions, wisdom, limitless generosity and hospitality, his great humour and love of storytelling. Services will be held at the Pine Lake Hub on Wednesday, April 26, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make a charitable donation to either Samaritan's Purse or World Vision.
