Dummett, Kenneth: Farming was everything

Written by ECA Review


Kenneth William Joseph Dummett passed away peacefully on May 11, 2016 at the Coronation Health Care Centre.

Kenneth was born July 27, 1928, the second child and eldest son of Frank and Pauline Dummett.

Most of his schooling was taken at Harts, Lucerne and Lake Thelma Schools.  At a very young age Kenneth decided farming was everything.  He loved the horses and cows, be it breaking a colt or just riding across the prairie.

Kenneth took over the farm from Frank and Pauline and never married.  His nieces, nephews and family were everything to him.

He always had a dog by his side and most recently, Ace, his border collie kept him grinning and stayed by his side.  She loved to jump on his lap and lick his face and he would say, get down darn dog, but the grin was a mile wide.

Kenneth was predeceased by his father, Frank, his mother Pauline, brothers-in-law Clifford Acaster and Mel Wadstein.  He leaves to mourn his sister Eva Wadstein, and her children Rod, Daphne and Geno; brother Franklin (Peggy) and their children Bill (Karen), Brian and Brenda (Don); sister Victoria Acaster and her children Faith (Erin), Douglas and Richard; many great nieces, nephews and great great nieces and nephews.
