March 24, 1953 - March 18, 2021

With deep sorrow, after a long battle with cancer, Ken passed away on March 18, 2021, with his wife Gloria by his side.
He is survived by his mother Audrey, his brother Bill (Jan), sisters, Janet, Dorothy (Ken), Allison and Collette (Paul), stepchildren, Carolyn and Allen, step-grandchildren, Zack and Cayden; his longtime friends and golfing buddies, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ken worked at CN for 35 years before he enjoyed a much deserved retirement in Sandy Hook, MB. He enjoyed golfing and travelling as much as he could. He loved spending time with family and friends.
He was well loved by everybody and his sense of humour and booming laugh will be sorely missed.
Flowers are gratefully declined.

Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • Couldn’t ask for a better neighbour. I’m going to miss his annual tutorial on how water flows downhill (sometimes). - Posted by: Vernon (Neighbour) on: Mar 28, 2021

  • I first met Ken in Texas in the eighties when the boys stayed at the Warren Inn. My first game golf game I teamed up with Ken his buddy Don Lanthier and Rolly the saint. It was one of the most fun times I had golfing. We played many times since and it was always tons of fun. Another memory of Texas was when Liv asked me to get milk or something. Ken said I’ll take you so you don’t get lost. Well four hours later and seven stops along Fredericksburg road we meet a lot of nice people in different establishments. No milk and Liv was not upset because she knew I was safe with Ken. Liv greatly enjoyed their nightly crib matches, which Ken usually won, great memories. Ken will be missed. Our condolences to Gloria and family. Don and Liv Doran - Posted by: Don and Liv Doran (Friend) on: Mar 28, 2021
