Ken was an avid outdoorsman at heart who enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping and wildlife in general. In his free time, Ken could be found watching one of his favorite old western films or television shows, like Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune. Most of all, Ken loved to spend time with his family. He had fond memories of family road trips up north, and treasured the memories made at family gatherings over the years; never missing an opportunity to be close to the ones he loved. Ken was loved by many, friends and family alike, a list too long to include everyone. Ken was a wonderful man who will be greatly missed. Ken was preceded in death by his parents, Chalmer and Lucy; his grandson, Christian Alexander Nash; and his five siblings: Shirley, Mary, Les, Tony, and Lynn In accordance with Ken’s wishes, cremation will take place.
