KENNETH BRUCE MASSON
May 10, 1930 – January 7, 2014
Kenneth was born in Alexandria, Ontario to Walter and Ethel Masson, he was the youngest of eight children. Kenneth leaves behind his wife of 59 years, Margaret (Patrick), sons Bruce and Brad (Libby), grandchildren Bret and Danielle and cat Squeaker.
He joined Overseas Telecommunications at age 15 in Montreal, then was transferred to Bamfield and later to Vancouver. He retired from Teleglobe Canada after 38 years. Kenneth hoped to have more years in retirement than working, but that wasn’t to be.
Kenneth was in and out of hospital for over three months. He had colon cancer surgery, the heart attack shortly after – followed by Pneumonia.
However, before all this, life was an adventure! He loved to travel, play golf, fish, ski and enjoy all sports. Kenneth was proud to get his Open Water Dive Certificate in Australia.
He dove the Great Barrier Reef and dove in the Bahamas; Climbed Ayers Rock, the leaning Tower and then went to the top of St. Pauls (twice). Also special to Kenneth were the Vatican in Rome, Marlin fishing in Mexico and kissing the Blarney Stone. He visited the White House, Pikes peak and the Grand Ole Opry. His last trip to South Africa, was very special as well, he got to see Victoria falls and the wild animals in their natural habitat.
There is no service by request. Donations in Kenneth’s memory may be made to the charity of your choice.
Many thanks to Dr. Sandhu, Dr. Monro and all the nursing staff of Princeton General Hospital.
