  • I am very shocked to see the passing of Ken. He was a very intelligent, artistic, and talented man, he had many fine qualities. We shared some time together visiting, going dancing, and doing crafts at his hanger.He was very kind bringing me up in his plane to enjoy the views of the area. I send my deepest condolences to the family and may your fond memories bring you comfort. God Bless and Rest In Peace Ken.🌹 - Posted by: Leslie Auty (Friend) on: Jan 16, 2020

  • I am very to hear about the passing of Dr. Schwaluk. I only knew him for a very short time as a Doctor at a walk in clinic last summer. I was going through a very bad experience at the time and I was amazed by his care, knowledge, and compassion. He took time to speak frankly with me and he explained everything in detail, as he knew that I understood my own situation. I have not had the opportunity to have another Doctor like this. I would like to express my sincere condolences to his family. The world has lost an amazing individual and my prayers go out to his family and friends. - Posted by: Kathleen MacIntyre (Dr. Schwaluk was my Doctor at a walk in clinic in Calgary last summer) on: May 13, 2019

  • Ken was my aviation medical examiner with whom I felt entirely comfortable. We also associated at the High River airport where our planes were based and that was where we shared the lessons that aviation taught us. Ms. Weisshaar has said it best about Ken's exceptional gifts and that we are all poorer for the loss. However none of us feel it as deeply as his family and for that I am truly sorry. - Posted by: John Melnick (Friend ) on: Apr 17, 2019

  • I would like to offer my condolences on your family's loss. I met Ken soon after his graduation from Dental School in Dauphin where we worked together for Dr. Watson. Over the years we worked together at several different offices and were even neighbours for many years. I hadn't seen Ken in many years, but I will miss knowing he is no longer in our world I truly admired his intelligence, ingenuity, artistic ability and skill, he was truly gifted. - Posted by: Wendy Weisshaar (friend) on: Apr 04, 2019
