Passing of UA Member Kenneth Kokott

September 28, 2021

Kenneth Alexander Paul Kokott 


Kenneth passed away at St. Paul’s hospital on Friday, September 24, 2021 from the cancer that had ravaged his strong body but not his spirit for the last 5 years. He was surrounded by his loving family and he is finally at peace. He is survived by his loving wife Debra, his four children: Kya Stouffer (Keenan), Sophie, Hayley, Ezra. He was loved deeply by his six siblings: Rachel Kokott, Bernie Kokott (Mary Guillette), Mary Lou Balkwill (Darrell), Angela Kokott (Grant Pollock), Sara Bazin (Karl), Ryan Kokott, his in laws: Chris MacLeod (Dar) and Sheryl Reiss, and his 15 nieces and nephews. Ken’s career as a journeyman pipefitter spanned more than 30 years and he was a sought after resource as the handyman/repairman in his family. He was an adventurer at heart who loved the outdoors. Ken was a man of simple pleasures, a perfect day often included a family gathering, bike rides, picking cherries or a bluebird day in the mountains. Now at peace, his family knows he is cruising on his motorcycle, finding a great deal at a garage sale and enjoying a $5.99 dinner buffet. We will all miss the loving family man who would do anything to make the ones he loved feel cared for and comfortable. A sincere thank you to the medical professionals and staff for the efforts, care and the compassion they gave to Kenneth and his family during the past several years. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, October 2, 2021 at the Cathedral of the Holy Family (123 Nelson Rd.) in Saskatoon, SK. Arrangements in care of Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
