January 30, 1920 – May 23, 2010

Born in Fort Frances, Ont. on Jan. 30, 1920, Dad was an active outdoors person throughout his life.
Always youthful, he was “carded” (CareCard) throughout his 70s and 80s.
At age 90, Dad battled lung cancer (mesothelioma) and passed away on May 23, 2010.
Kip is survived by his wife of 53 years, Isabell; daughters, Kathy (Paul) and Carolyn (Graham); grandchildren, Megan (Simon), Lindsey, Brett, and Kyle; and sister, Vera Szydlowski.
We wish Dad endless days of bright blue skies, riding a horse across a grassy meadow, swimming in a warm salty ocean, shooting a puck across a frozen lake, or carving turns down virgin powder.
Please, no flowers to mom (allergic). In memoriam donations are appreciated on Dad’s behalf to the “Relay for Life” (online: Canadian Cancer Society, reference Squamish, Kathy Fletcher) or the CH.I.L.D. Foundation (
