I knew Ken as a fellow Captain in 33 CBG HQ late 90s when I was getting my feet wet as a Staff Officer in the G1 branch. He was really helpful in wading through the bureaucracy. Good guy, RIP.

CALKINS, Kenneth "Ken" June 17, 1965 - April 7, 2010 With great sadness the family of Captain Kenneth "Ken" Calkins announce his sudden passing on April 7, 2010. Ken's greatest love and devotion in life was to each of his six children: Brad, Curtis, Deena, Eric, Gillian and Hayden. Predeceased by his daughters Felicia and Ivy, he also leaves to mourn his loss, the mother of his children, Candace, his step-daughter Alana Mycko and his parents-in-law, William and Frances Mycko, along with numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Ken was born in Fort St. John, BC on June 17, 1965, the youngest child of Madeline and Elair Calkins and brother to Theresia, Valerie and Jim. Predeceased by Elair, Ken was also loved by his stepfather, Gerry Scott. Ken honourably served his country in the Canadian Forces with the Artillery, Armoured and Logistics Branches for 28 years. Ken served in Calgary, Cyprus, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg and Shilo. Most recently he was a valued member of Land Forces Western Area Headquarters in Edmonton. Ken will also be remembered as an icon in his community, and held many volunteer positions including the Parents Council of Guthrie School, the Community Council, 38th Scout Group, the Edmonton Seahawks youth football team, his parish council and the Military Family Resource Centre.

I know it's been a few years since My dad, Capt Calkins, passed away and at the time I didn't know about this site. However, as his oldest daughter I wanted to thank everyone for the support the CF family has given me and my siblings throughout the healing process of his passing. many individuals have been there when we needed them the most and have continued to support us. Thank you.  :salute:  :yellow:
