1931 – 2011

Mr. Kenneth Evertt Muncy, also known as Ken, Grandpa, Great-grandpa and sometimes other names, passed away February 21, 2011 at the Stettler Hospital and Care Centre. Ken was born March 3, 1931 in the Stettler Hospital, the fourth child of Howard and Anna Muncy, and spent his entire life on the family farm north of Halkirk. He was a farmer at heart but had a deep desire to build and develop different articles. Some were fairly successful, while other were not. Ken was a life member of the Halkirk Elks and filled all the stations during his membership. He was also on the board of director’s for the Forestburg CO-OP Seed Cleaning Plant Ltd. for 35 years. Many hours were spent overseeing the development and building of the plant. Over the years he enjoyed camping, curling, snowmobiling and bowling until his health failed for doing these activities. Ken met Kathy (Halseth) at, of all places, the stampede in Stettler, They were married June 12, 1957 and to this union, four children were born and raised on the farm. In March of 2007, Ken and Kathy moved to their new home in Stettler.
