Ken was always a true professional and a great man.

I knew Ken because he was the contractor for MEMEX who led the development of the first version MERLIN - MEMEX's shop floor monitoring software, where I was the CTO responsible for software and hardware development. Without Ken, there would not have been a version of MERLIN. I heard countless stories of Ken putting in many long, long hours to get MEMEX software products out the door. When I started working with Ken in 2014, I was blessed to have such a dedicated and talented software developer.

We had daily update calls and Ken would usually be the one to make all of us laugh. Ken was up for any challenge, but was always able to do it with a sense of humor.

My fondest memories of Ken are when I would drive out to his house in Woodstock, Ontario where we would go to one of his favorite restaurants and just sit and talk. Yes, we would discuss work, but we would usually discuss life. What truly amazed me about Ken was his ability to keep working under the most trying of conditions, and Ken never complained.

When I saw the post by Wally Cassell of MEMEX on the guest book for Ken, that Wally and Jeremy Roy of MEMEX visited Ken in the past few weeks and shared some stories, as well as some laughs that warmed my heart because I am sure Ken greatly appreciated their visit.

My thoughts and prayers are with Ken's wife Maureen and his entire family, relatives and friends.

God bless you Ken - you were the ultimate class act and you will be terribly missed by of all of those who you touched.

Dear Maureen and Ken's Family, I am sadden hear about your loss.

I thank Ken for the many years of laughter and memories during our time working together. From his constant reminders to keep it simple and to always take the time for your family and friends, he was always there when you needed some encouragement or when you just wanted someone to talk to. I'm glad I was able to spend some time with Ken and Maureen earlier this month to share in a few more laughs and stories togetherhe will be greatly missed.

Please accept my condolences with warm thoughts & prayers.

Maureen and Family- together you've made awesome memories that will become more joyous and vivid as time goes on. Ken always reminded us that... "life is too short so take time to laugh, be sincere in what you do and let others know you care". Ken believed this, and he lived it. Our family was better when he became part of it. He was a special friend and brother-in-law. We will really miss him.

My dearest brother...you showed the true meaning of strength and courage.You fought as hard as you could, until you couldn't fight any longer.
You made people laugh, when they were down, or just because. And the love you had with Maureen, and family...was so strong, you could move mountains!
You may be gone, but in my heart, you'll always be.
Life is too short...never take it for granted! Rest now, my brother! You are at peace!I love you!
