KENNETH RICHARD PARTRIDGE
March 10, 1947 – September 22, 2021
With heavy hearts, we announce that Ken passed away peacefully after a brief illness, on September 22, 2021, at the Grace Hospice with his family by his side.
He is loved and missed by his wife Judy; his children Kirstie (Clint), Andrew (Cheryl), Callie, and Sean; and his grandchildren.
In his youth, growing up in England, Ken was an avid Motocross racer, outdoor enthusiast, strong supporter of Cheltenham Town Football Club, Fulham Football Club, and English soccer. He was a proud Brit and had a strong respect for his ancestry. At the age of 19 he ventured to North America, and soon established his roots in Winnipeg where he remained for the rest of his years.
He worked in the U.K. and Canada as a toolmaker, jig-builder, and machinist. He was an instructor at Red River College with extensive teaching experience in machine shop practice, tool and die, and CNC programming. His interests included home repair, gardening, soccer, and old motorcycles. He was a dedicated Winnipeg Blue Bomber and Winnipeg Jets fan. Ken was an incredibly hard worker who was always willing to “give a tune up” if required. He built his own home and a few garages.
Ken spent many years supporting his children’s swimming careers with Manta Swim Club and coaching soccer. He enjoyed travelling and camping, and he loved watching his grandchildren play sports.
Ken was predeceased by his mother Mabel Margaret Partridge (née Ross); his father Sidney Partridge, his sister Annette Mott, and his granddaughter Grace Mary Foucault.
The family will be honouring Ken’s life privately. We give heartfelt thanks to the staff at Riverview Health Centre and the Grace Hospice. If friends so wish, donations may be made to CancerCare Manitoba, Riverview Health Centre, or the Grace Hospice.
