HELGASON, Kenneth - Obituary Photo.jpg



August 25, 1955 - June 23, 2023

Ken passed away peacefully at the age of 67.


He was predeceased by his parents, Steini and Bergros Helgason; sisters, Fern, Eleanor, Kristjana “Kitty”, and Geraldine; brothers, Halfdan, Robert, Hallur “Halli”, and Gerald. He will be truly missed by all those he loved, including his daughter Julia, brother Carl, sister Rosalyn, many nieces and nephews, and his very dear friends.


Kenneth was born and raised in Riverton, Manitoba. He was a true artist. He created some amazing sketches and drawings (that hang on many of our walls), commercial signs, and photos. He had intellect, poetic candor, and a quick wit that was unmistakably his own. We will not forget him and will keep him in our hearts until we meet again.


A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.


Thank you to the staff at the Health Sciences Centre.


“There is a crack, a crack in everything.

That’s how the light gets in.”

~ Leonard Cohen
