March 20, 1935 – January 13, 2018. Sadly, our cherished father passed away in hospital as the result of a stroke. Ken was predeceased by his beloved wife Frances in 2013. Left to mourn are his children, Peter (Lucie), Laura, and Liza (Brian), his adored grandchildren, Jackie (Gregory), Kenny, and Leah, his darling great-granddaughter Lily, sisters Sheila and Gene, brother Terrence, brother-in-law Jerry, many nieces and nephews, and the extended family at the cottage.
Golden Gloves champ, respected union representative and later, restaurateur, Dad was well-loved for his fairness, generosity, and gentle ways. Dad was a life-long Habs and Alouettes fan, an avid composter, rock collector, fire-maker, and a great story-teller. Dinners at the cottage were always an event, and everyone was welcome to enjoy perfectly barbequed meat, hard potatoes and donuts cut into quarters.
Sadly, these last few years Dad suffered some memory loss and the desire to cook, but he never lost his open, friendly ways with loved ones and strangers alike.
A Celebration of Life to honour Ken will be held at the cottage at a later date still to be determined.
