It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of ‘Ken’ our wonderful and dear Husband, Father, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle and Friend of many. Ken left us suddenly, but not without a good fight, while vacationing in Washington State, U.S. Predeceased by his parents from Lancashire, England, William and Edith Nuttall, most recently by his loving sister Dorothy Hillier, brother-in-law Bill Hillier, mother of his chidren and partner of 25 years Gerry Simpson Nuttall.Astrid Nuttall. Survived by his loving wife Heather Nuttall, his children Kevin (Sian), Sandra and David (Laura) and his grandchildren, whom he was so proud of Drew, Meghan, Scott, Emily and Sarah. His nephews and niece Paul (Chris), Shelly and Mark (Belinda) Hillier. Ken will also be missed by his extended family Carol Rittaler, David (Candice), Jon (Brandy) and grandchildren Taylor, Zachary, Tristan, Jerod, Ava and Ryland. ‘Grampa Ken’ will also be greatly missed by Sean, Pav, Emma and Hannah. Ken was in the Ready-Mix business all his life starting out as a truck driver, then sales and management. Ken was a long-time member of HUDAC and made many life-long friends in the construction field in Victoria. Dad became a Cub Leader for his sons Kevin and David and enjoyed many more years as ‘Akela’ with the 5th Garry Oak Scouts. Dad was blessed with many years with his friends (including good friends Wayne and Joan Peter’s), family camping, horseback riding and boy did he love to dance! Ken was also an excellent swimmer and spent many early morning hours at his local recreation centres keeping physically fit. In recent years, Ken thoroughly enjoyed his luncheons with Vic West School Alumni, his time spent with his friends at the Sooke Legion and proudly watching his grandchildren play sports. Ken lived life to the fullest and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
