    • Kenneth Corbel "KC" Strong
    • RCE Badge circa 1937 - 1952

    We regret to advise that Kenneth Corbel "K.C." Strong gently passed away on the morning of 6 August 2005.

    Born in 1921 in Rocky Mountain House AB, Ken was one of the many Second World War Royal Canadian Engineers mappers who contributed to the success of the Allied landings during the D-Day offensive. He helped produce many maps used by the invading Allied Forces to land, identify and then overrun enemy defensive positions along the Normandy coast to spearhead the successful invasion of Europe.

    In business after the war, KC was a successful executive sales manager for a large, well-known Vancouver-based printing and lithographic enterprise.

    A private family gathering was held in celebration of his life. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any tokens of appreciation or condolence be made by donation to the Palliative Care Ward at the Lions Gate Hospital.
