PENIKETT, Stephen R.

December 20, 1950 - October 2, 2013
After a brief, but devastating illness, we let Steve slip the surly bonds of Earth to fly high in cloudless skies. He will be remembered for his intelligence, quick wit, dry humour, unwavering support, endless generosity and big heart. Steve loved a good argument, especially if he won. His early years were filled with scouting and adventures beside his father whom he greatly admired and respected. On his father's advice he earned his AME licence along with his pilot's licence. His aviation career was nothing short of legendary, taking him around the world. He became the "go-to" person for anything Twin Otter related. Steve took a great deal of pride in being the General Manager of Kenn Borek Air Ltd., and dedicated much of his life to realizing the company's motto "Anytime....Anywhere". Steve was a fixture in northern aviation and served for many years as a NATA board member.
