Master Warrant Officer (Ret’d) Joseph Kenneth “Ken” Bellefontaine, CD – Comm Op 213

…passed away at the age of 84 on 4 February 2021, in the Comox Valley Hospital.

Ken was born in Halifax, N.S. March 11, 1936.  He joined the Canadian Armed Forces in 1953 and continued until his retirement 38 years later.  Ken was a dedicated soldier, travelling to many places around the world during his career.  He loved nothing more then to gather with friends and family and would always talk about his adventures.  Ken enjoyed going to the legion to spend time with friends and play a game of Keno.  He was larger than life, had a huge heart and will be missed by many people near and far.

Ken is predeceased by his mother Theresa Cotie and father Joseph V. Bellefontaine.  He is survived by his wife Helen, daughter Debra and son Ken; all from Comox, B.C.

We wish to thank all the caregivers and doctors who have taken care of Ken these past few years and the staff at the Comox Hospital.  A special thank you to our close friends here in Comox for all your support the last six years.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Cancer Society or charity of choice.
