I have so many wonderful childhood memories of Ken! Growing up across the street lead to an interesting neighborhood. Ken (and Vivian) helped shaped our love of reading by allowing us to borrow a book from their own library. We also shared some great times around the piano for singalongs too. Neighbour versus neighbour tomato growing contests, complete with official judging, was an event I enjoyed watching. I think though that i will miss Ken's smile the most...he was always wearing one whenever I saw him. Hugs and prayers to all who are missing Ken now.

Vivian and Family,
So sorry to hear of Ken's passing. During my time in the Sault, you and Ken were both such kind neighbours and always so generous with sharing your fruitful garden growing! Thinking of you and your family at this time. Sheila Mannella & Family

Dear Aunt Vivian,

We were so sad to hear of Uncle Kenny's passing. We sure had a lot of great times, going for ice cream, eating at the Organ Grinder, and touring around SSM. The kids (and the rest of us, in days gone by!) always enjoyed receiving cards from him. We will all cherish his beautiful woodworking projects that he passed along to us, and we are so happy we had a chance to see him last summer. Uncle Kenny will be dearly missed!

Juanita, Pearce, Tehya and Daxen

I always enjoyed a visit with Ken and remember his wit and laughter. I treasure the box I have that he made. My deepest sympathies to all of you. In Ken's memory, I have made a donation to the Aspen Valley Wildlife Sanctuary. Love to you all

To Vivian and Family,
Ken was a treasured neighbour to my parents, Sid and Dora. Mum and Dad always admired Ken's woodworking skills and the clock Ken made for them always had a special spot right until Mum's passing. It has been handed down as a family heirloom and hangs proudly on my wall as a reminder of a great guy.
