Regent College has lost one of its founding fathers. Kenneth Oswald Smith passed away on Tuesday, November 14 at the age of 90. A member of Regent's founding Board of Governors, Ken has the distinction of having given the school its name “Regent.” He is one of only two people to have received an honorary doctorate from the college. A lover of music and the arts, and a very gifted singer, Ken was an extremely gracious person and a true gentleman. The Regent community mourns the loss of our dear and generous friend, even as we celebrate the Christ-honouring life he lived.
Please join us in thanksgiving for Ken's life and in prayer for his wife, Ruth, and their family. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, December 2 at 2:30 pm at Granville Chapel, 5901 Granville St, Vancouver.
