Hodd, Kenneth Baker 1920-2008
We will truly miss our dear Kenn, who in his 88th year passed away peacefully on October 15, 2008, in the comfort of his own home, surrounded by loved ones. Kenn is survived by his cherished wife of 63 years, Mildred (Riddell) and family, Janie and Paul Reble of Burlington, John and Karen Hodd of Meadow Lake, Saskatchewan, Elizabeth Hodd and Arlie Katzman of Niagara on the Lake and Henry Krukowski of Ancaster. Kenn was predeceased by his beloved daughter Patricia Krukowski in December 2006. Kenn was a well known mathematics teacher within the Hamilton School Board prior to which he was active in cadet training at the Royal Military College. Captain K. B. Hodd CD served his country with distinction during World War II, in Europe and Italy, as a proud officer in the Royal Canadian Corps of Signals. Kenn was an accomplished pilot and avid boater, favouring the waters of Georgian Bay where he has spent every one of the past 46 summers and where his remains will rest for all eternity. His love of nature and all creatures great and small, reflected his gentle manner and his deep respect for life in all forms. Those who knew Kenn, held him in high esteem as a man of honour, a kind and caring father and a steadfast friend. With Kenn’s passing, we have all lost a very good man. Cremation has taken place and at Kenn’s request no funeral services are to be held. In lieu of flowers Kenn’s family gratefully appreciates donations to the charity of your choice or to the M.
