I extend condolences to Kenny's family. I remember many years ago when Kenny was a young boy visiting his grandparents, Sandy and Elezena, they would bring him to my parent's home or have my late nephew Brett (about same age) visit there so that he would have a playmate. The MacArthurs including Bobbie and Joanne were all beloved friends and neighbours. While I have not had contact with Kenneth since his youth, his obituary leads me to believe he continued growing as the thoughtful and delightful boy I remember. I am so saddened by your enormous loss. I hope memories of him will give you much comfort.

Ken grew up across the street from me and after he moved to Halifax he would visit the old neighborhood occasionally.
He had a great sense of humor and he would often get a devilish glint in his eyes when telling me or someone else an outrageous story of some kind.
I'll miss his visits. Condolences to his mom, Bobbie, and his wife Zenny.

It's been many many years since I saw Ken. When I heard he had passed, I felt first melancholy because 60 is too young, but then I felt warmth as many great memories of our escapades in the days of our youth in Fredericton flowed in. When I read that he was a collector and history buff, I knew there was something we had in common, even if I didn't know then what it was. He survived many follies. His beloved Harley, barely a week old, stolen on it's maiden voyage to Newfoundland. The runnaway deisel Rabbit. A couple of work related mishaps. How could something as despicable as an illness take such an intrepid soul. Rest my friend. My condolences to his family.

I was saddened to hear of Kens passing and would like to express my condolences to Bobbie and Zenny and family. When I think of Ken I am reminded of the many trips we made to his grandparents property on Eel Lake? (near Cantebury N.B.) I think it was his favourite place in the world and we created some lifelong memories there. We were young and the world was our oyster. We ended up living on opposite sides of the country but I still remember our youthful adventures with pleasure. Rest in peace Ken.

I was friends with Ken back on Elmwood Court in Fredericton. So in the 0-20 age range, although we drifted apart over the past 40 years and I think it's been about 30 years since we last saw each other.

Reading about his recent interest in stamp collecting made me think of the stamp collection I had when I was in grade 2. So Ken would have been in grade 1. I remember showing Ken a particular Canadian stamp that I thought was interesting and I remember him saying "According to my calculations, that stamp is about 20 years old". Whether or not he actually knew anything about the stamp wasn't as impressive as the fact that he used a word like "calculations" when he was 5 or 6 years old, and used it in the right context.

Lots of good memories from our formative years. My condolences to Zen, Bobbie and family.
