Ken was born October 10, 1942 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan.
He was the youngest of ten children born to Sarah (Phosa) and Clarence Devlin. Ken grew up on the family farm in Calder, Saskatchewan and moved to Revelstoke in 1956 at the age of 13. In 1962 he began working for CP Rail as a Carman. Ken continued working for CP Rail in both Golden and Revelstoke for 37.5 years until his retirement on June 30, 2000.
Ken loved his family and friends deeply and that love was returned. His passion for sports took a close second to family with his favourite teams being the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Toronto Blue Jays and the Saskatchewan Roughriders. Ken enjoyed his Legion meat draws, lotto tickets, casino visits and trips back to visit family and friends in Saskatchewan.
Ken is pre-deceased by his parents Clarence and Phosa, his brothers Jack, Vince, Norman and Joe and sisters Eunice, Irene and Edna. He is survived by his sister Margaret Waters of Revelstoke, brother Pat Devlin of Vancouver, sister-in-law Florence of Revelstoke, brother-in-law Bob Johnston of Hope and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
