Ken is survived by his four children: Gerald (Kay), Alan (Sue), Lois (Ron) and Don; seven grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren and one great great grandchild.

Ken worked for the CNR for 43 years, his first job at 18 until his retirement at 61, and was an active and loyal union member. He also enjoyed his part-time job at the Northlands racetrack where he worked for 20 years from 1966 to 1986.

Ken maintained an immaculate yard, loved gardening and had an amazing apple tree. Every fall he had bags of produce to give away to neighbours, friends and family.

Ken sold his Northgate house and moved to the Waterford at Summerlea in 2015, where he made many good friends among staff and residents.

Ken will be remembered and missed by all who knew him.
