Kenneth Alexander Foulis


It is with heavy hearts we announce the sudden passing of Kenneth “Ken” Foulis, at home, on Thursday October 14, 2021. He was born
on August 20, 1965 to his parents the late Forrest Foulis and Velma Whittal. Predeceased by his sister Brenda Fink. He leaves behind his loving sister Cheryl and brother-in-law Ron Holmes, his brother and best friend Russell, his nephews and their families Lucky, Carrie, Oliver, and Luke Holmes, Dip, Jeanette, Kasey and Bret Holmes, and Jason, Teresa, Madison and Leigha Fink. He loved spending time with his aunts and cousins enjoying lemon cake. Ken was always happy to entertain his great nephews and nieces, chasing them around the pool table and showing their pictures to friends. Growing up he liked to build model car kits and go to stock car races with his nephews. Ken enjoyed playing cards and watching his Toronto Maple Leafs. He was very sociable and loved meeting new people and their pets too. Ken worked at Walmart for 37 years, beginning his career with the company when it was Woolco. His coworkers at Walmart were his second family whom he cared for deeply. Those wishing to make a memorial donation in Ken’s name are asked to please consider Parkinson Canada.
