Obituary for Kenneth Lorne George Nabess

Loving father, grandfather and friend, Kenneth Lorne George Nabess was born Saturday, December 21, 1946 to Emmaline (Stevenson) and Gabriel Nabess in The Pas, Manitoba. He lived the majority of his life in Wabowden Manitoba. Wabowden was always home to him.
Ken had many jobs throughout his lifetime. He is better remembered as a hard-working CN man, who liked nothing more than a cold beer after work. He always had a love of planes and enjoyed his time spent working at Cross Lake Air Service with George Dram and numerous pilots. Ken was also a licensed pilot.
Bo enjoyed many things in life; hunting and fishing, especially with his nephews, hockey, cooking he could make a pot of soup that was one of a kind. He was a great curler known for his takeout weight and legendary broom throw. He also enjoyed walking. He never had a problem walking to where ever he needed to go. He couldn't sit still and walked many miles. He taught his children to walk with a humble spirit. Not known to many, but Ken was a very spiritual man and read his Bible faithfully.
We take great comfort in knowing that dad took his last breath in the arms of his loving son Allan and with his nephew Kenny Allan by his side. Kenny would've loved the fact that he left this world in a room full of Kennys and Allans.
Kenny is survived by his children Eddie (Bernadette), Kelly (Anita), Kim (Larry), Allan (Samantha); former spouse and mother of his children, Marlene; grandchildren and great, grandchildren; dear friend Debbie Kirkness, whom he spent the last years of his life with; sisters Gwen (Terry) McLeod, Lucielle (Dave) Arnold; numerous nieces, nephew and cousins.
Kenny was predeceased by his parents Emmaline and Gabriel Nabess; brother Ronald (Jack) Nabess; sister Louise Stevenson; brother-in-law Stan Stevenson; nephew Wayne Stevenson; uncles Ronnie, Kenneth and Ross Stephenson; grandparents John and Eva Stephenson and Patrick and Justine Nabess.
