A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday May 28, 2023
from 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. at the farm of Jamie & Bonnie King,
9158 Drury Line, Blenheim.

It is with great sadness that the family of Kevin Stanley King announces that they had to say goodbye to a loving husband, father, brother, uncle, friend and neighbour.  Kevin passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends after a short battle with cancer on May 17, 2023.  He took his last breath looking into the eyes of Fiona (Land) King, his loving wife of 21 years.  The Kings, the Land’s and Kevin’s mother-in-law Adrice Grenon are all devastated over their loss.

Kevin is survived by four children Darren, Karen, Bella and Adam and he will be remembered with great fondness by Summer and Fiona.  His daughter Karley passed away suddenly in 2021.

Born 65 years ago to the late Ken & Nancy King, Kevin is survived by his siblings and their families:  Ken & Rose King (Trevor & Catherine), Jamie & Bonnie King (Melissa, Matthew & Marcie), his twin sister Kathy & Rick Henry and Kris & Joanne King (Tara, Rachel and Adam).  He is also survived by Fiona’s family Shawn & Jocelyn Land (Nadia and Tanya), Colin & Joan Land (Megan & Jacob and Emma) and Lloyd & Jen Land (Jaime & Junior and Jackson).

Kevin lived for his family and friends and would do anything to help them.  He loved them unconditionally.  He loved big bonfires, fireworks and a nice cold Margarita or a Caesar.  He always went the extra mile to make things fun and exciting for his children like bringing out the popcorn maker, the cotton candy machine, the slushy machine or the hotdog maker.  He loved vacationing with Fiona and the children.  He wanted them to see as much as they could in life.  It makes us sad that he won’t see his children, nieces and nephews grow up, marry and have children of their own.

Kevin has always been there for everyone regardless of what he had going on in his own life.  He left the world a better place than he found it.

We want to extend a special thankyou to family friends and neighbours who supported us and our four children through Kevin’s battle with cancer.  Thankyou to Tilbury Concrete for his 28 years of employment and support.  Kris McPhee, you are an amazing person and the family thanks you for your care, compassion and friendship.  Ines Ritacco Quenville from CIBC; Kevin treasured your friendship and professional guidance.  Thankyou for all your support to the family care over the years.

Cremation has taken place.  Family and friends are invited to the Jamie & Bonnie King’s family farm, 9158 Drury Line, Blenheim on Sunday May 28 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. to celebrate Kevin’s life.

In lieu of flowers, a trust fund has been set up for Kevin’s children.  Donations can be made by cheque either through the Blenheim Community Funeral Home or sent directly to Fiona through e-transfer at [email protected]


“When you’re having a bonfire on a warm summers’ night, look for me…I’ll be there.  Let the warmth of the fire surround you like a blanket and know how much I loved you.  And when you see the flames flickering in the night like shooting stars, make a wish and think of me.  Make your life spectacular.  I know I did”.
