  • My deepest condolences to the Laxdal family, friends, and to all the people who knew Ken. I worked with Ken until his passing for 6 years. He was an outstanding person. As a car person myself we had many conversations about his 29 Ford that he was building. His eyes would light up everytime he talked about his car. I was aware he was ill but, didn't expect that he would leave us so fast. Once again I'm sorry about your loss. - Posted by: Will Tataryn (fellow collogue at Piston Ring) on: Aug 16, 2021
