August 2, 1934 – January 19, 2019
Passed away peacefully at The Westmount LTC in his 84th year with his son by his side. Beloved father of David of Kitchener and Michelle of Vancouver. Proud grandfather of Morgan of Kitchener and Molly of Vaughan. Pre-deceased by his parents James and Adelia Sangster, his brothers Morris, William, Gordon and James, and sisters Ruth, Joyce, Grace and Evelyn. Born in Stratford Ontario, Ken relocated to Kitchener where he was a proud employee working at J.M. Schneider’s for 35 years. He made several close bonds with his colleagues and made lasting friendships. He was known as a soft spoken, kind and gentle soul. Ken always saw the best in people and engaged fully in life. His jovial nature, generosity, patience and sense of humour were just a few of the wonderful qualities for which he will be remembered. Always willing to give of his time freely, Ken was active in the Kitchener Minor Hockey Association in the mid 1970’s as a volunteer coach and team manager. He was affectionately given the nick-name “Punk Rock” by the players, due to his affinity for high top running shoes. Ken was an avid camper and always enjoyed an opportunity to spend time with his son fishing, and sharing life stories. When he moved from his home to The Westmount LTC he was quickly embraced by the residents and staff. He was an active member of the Resident Council as he advocated for others. He engaged in many activities, outings and functions, and was proud to be a first and second year graduate of “The Westmount Academy”. The family would like to express gratitude to The Westmount staff for the amazing care they provided. Ken felt as though he was a part of their family, and was always shown exceptional kindness and compassion. A memorial will take place in the spring to honour Ken’s life. Donations to The Westmount LTC – Academy Program, or a charity of your choice, would be appreciated as an expression of sympathy.
