It is with great sadness that the family of Kenneth Joseph Tobin announce his passing on May 6, 2022, at the age of 56, in Fredericton, N.B, after a brief battle with cancer.

Kenneth is predeceased by his parents, Cyril Tobin Sr. and Theresa Tobin (Wiseman), and brother, James Patrick Tobin.

He is survived by his siblings, Tina (Kelly Davidson), Tony, John (Shirley Withers), Helena (Jason Williams), Cyril Jr., and Kevin (Emily Chevrier); nieces and nephews, Christina, Christopher, Tyler, Theresa, Mark, Ryan, Jack, Landon, Lydia, Oona, and Ari; uncles, Seamus Gibbons and Alphonse Sweeney; aunts, Sandra Tobin, Helena Kavanaugh, Lorraine Ashford (Jim), Marilynn Hickey (Dave), and Shelia Earle (Cliff); as well as close friends. 

Kenneth was born in Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador on March 5, 1966.  He moved to Fredericton, N.B. with his parents and siblings in 1974. After graduating from Fredericton High School in 1984, he pursued a career as a computer technician, working for a number of years at Interactive Computer Systems before becoming self-employed.

Kenneth was an accomplished athlete, playing competitive hockey, baseball, and softball.  A lover of music, he was self-taught on guitar, piano, and accordion, recording much of his own music over the years.  Kenneth was logical and resourceful; he had an insatiable desire to learn how things worked.  Through curiosity and perseverance, he became a highly adept computer technician, mechanic, electrician, and carpenter.  He led a life of great purpose and intention in all that he did.  He was generous, dependable, honest, and kind, always willing to help family, friends, and neighbours.  Kenneth was adored by his family and will be dearly missed.

A memorial service for family and close friends will be held at 12 pm on Monday, May 16, at Bishop’s Funeral Home: Father Peter Osborne officiating.  Interment will be at Hermitage Cemetery.  Online condolences and sharing of memories can be made at
