Condolences & Memories (13 entries)

  • I'll miss this man. He would come to the shop every couple months to get his Tahoe or Caravan worked on. I always enjoyed his style! - Posted by: Ryan Smith (Friend ) on: Mar 08, 2021

  • I worked with KEN many many years ago at Riverview Ambulance. Ken and I we’re great friends and continued to communicate after I left Winnipeg in 1979. Rest in peace my old friend! - Posted by: Martin Kramer (Former Ambulance Driver) on: Feb 20, 2021

  • I will miss you Ken. You were a great friend of 30 years and always very dependable. Sleep well my friend. - Posted by: Janie (Friend) on: Feb 11, 2021

  • Hi. First of all my condolences to his family. I was Kenny's first cousin on his Dad's side. I did not know him well as he was older, the family was not that large, and to my knowledge he left Winnipeg at some point. I also left Manitoba fairly young so did not have contact with the family. What I do remember of him was that he seemed to be a happy guy, and friendly, at least the couple of times I saw him. I think he was in touch with my mom a few times after my Dad died. Out of the blue he also showed up at my Mom's funeral which I thought was very kind of him. My brother lives in the states and would love to hear from, or get in touch with his sister Donna, his sister Mary or his daughter Shannon in Vegas. (If any of you see this, my brother's name is Jim Burdyny in Omaha Nebraska, and is on facebook and listed in the phone directory. I will make a donation to the Winnipeg Humane Society. Again my thoughts are with the family. - Posted by: Judy Hollingsworth (Burdyny) (Cousin) on: Jan 18, 2021

  • Ken always loved German Sheppard dogs. He was involved with training police dogs in the early years of the program and knew the names of all the early WPS service dogs and their handlers. His dog was always his faith companion in the suburban. - Posted by: Glen (friend from teenager years) on: Jan 12, 2021

  • I Had many good memories of Ken and his Dad when I worked for Riverview Ambulance. Rest in Peace my friend. - Posted by: Marty Matthews (Friend and Coworker ) on: Jan 09, 2021

  • I worked in the same industry as Ken. He was always available to give advice and share a story along with a coffee. So sorry to hear of his passing. My sympathies to his family and friends. - Posted by: Pamela Smith (Friend ) on: Jan 05, 2021

  • I worked for Ken years ago. We would go on trips up north doing what he did best. Was always a great guy to spend time with and whenever seen me in my yard he would always stop by. He was always welcome in our home. My condolences to the family for their loss. - Posted by: Rob Dykstra (Friend ) on: Dec 29, 2020

  • As a youngster, some 8 years younger than Ken, I remember he always had a moment to say hi and ask how you were doing. Never treated me like "a kid" but rather simply a neighbor. Condolences to his family, and especially to Donna and Mary who I also remember fondly. - Posted by: Brett Younger (Neighbor) on: Dec 26, 2020

  • Ken was our neighbour for many years. He always looked out for the area and was a good friend. Those of us who new Ken would call him our “Neighbourhood Watch” which we were thankful to have. Ken would always make a point to come by for a visit and his morning cup of “mud” (coffee) When there was a big dump of snow Ken would get out his John Deere and clear our driveway for us! Keep watching out for us up in heaven and you will always have a special place in our hearts. Our deepest condolences to the family. Rest In Peace Ken Carey & Sheri - Posted by: Carey & Sheri (Neighbour) on: Dec 26, 2020
