Kenneth Pocha “Ken”
1943 – 2016
1943 was the year that the world was graced with a wonderful man named Kenneth Pocha. He was born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan into a family of 16.
In his younger years he enjoyed being at home working on the family farm. He moved to BC in the 50’s and pursued a career in the logging industry until a heart attack left him to follow his true passion, working on vehicles. This is the Ken Pocha everyone grew to know and love. Everyone knew, if you broke down, or needed a place to fix a vehicle Ken was there to help you. Ken’s biggest joy was children, and many of the neighbourhood kids called him “Uncle Ken. He never had children of his own but he raised a family full of children
whom he took under his wing and his guidance and he loved them as his own.
Ken was the type of man that would give you the shirt off his back or a shoulder to cry on. He was always ready with a
joke, (as dirty as they were), to tease the hell out of you, or to sit and have a coffee where he would share his knowledge of cars and the value of family. He was a loving brother, uncle, father and grandfather.
Ken is survived by his best friend Ada Sands, children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, brothers, sisters,
nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents Alfred Willard and Wilno Catherine, his sister Kay, brother Archie, brother Joe, sister Dolly, brother Alfred, brother Lionel, sister Dorthy and nephew Joe.
Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
