Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I only knew about Mr. Tremblay through his son Keith. But what I did come to learn, and what I see in Keith that he has both of his parents to thank for is something pretty spectacular. I’m grateful for Keith telling me stories about his dad because many times, as I believe Keith knows, those stories helped me gain some strength, some hope, and the will to put in the hard work to help be present for myself and my own family. If Keith is any representation of what type of father Mr. Tremblay was, it tells me that Mr. Tremblay was about as good a person as one could every possible hope for to be able to call dad, husband, grandpa, uncle, son, or friend. *big hugs to everyone* - Posted by: Brock Gunter-Smith (Friend of his son Keith) on: Nov 13, 2021
Hi Kathy & Family: We are so very sorry to hear about Ken passing. We always thought both of you were such great people. It was so much fun during the Call of the Wild days and we have missed you both over time. Please accept our deepest condolences.

Kathy and the ‘K’ family. So sorry to hear of your loss. Ken was a good man and a good baseball player. I have many great memories with Ken on and off the field over the last 40+ years. We played together in league, tournaments, provincials (won twice), four nationals, and a few tournaments to the States. Ken was instrumental in naming ‘Da Bears” and the ‘Call of the Wild” (howl!) teams. He also came up with nick names for a lot of the players. It was a lot of fun. In recent years, I enjoyed meeting up with Ken and Bob in the mall. Rest in peace Yogi. Wayne - Posted by: Wayne & Edith Smith (Friend) on: Nov 13, 2021
