In Loving Memory of

Kenneth William Ciszek


Obituary of Kenneth William Ciszek

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ken, peacefully in his home on Monday, February 8 2021, at the age of 59. He will be forever loved by his mother Marie (Cliff Wismer), brothers; Tim (Starr) and Mike. Ken was predeceased by his father George, and by his brother Eugene. He will be lovingly remembered by his nieces, cousins, aunt, uncle, and by his lifelong friends; Fred, Karen and their families.

Ken's life was focused on devoting over 20 years working for Rankin Construction, which was never a job for him, but rather a career that gave him the greatest life fulfillment. He was most passionate about reading. He read numerous history books and enjoyed visiting the local library to pick up new books to explore. He cherished his family and would take care of everyone in his circle. He will be greatly missed.

In accordance with his wishes, cremation has taken place and arrangements are entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). A graveside service will be held at a later date at Fairview Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy and in tribute to Ken's favourite pastime, memorial donations may be given to the Niagara Falls Public Library. Online condolences may be shared on Ken's tribute page found at
