I want to express my condolences to you on the loss of your father. I visited with your dad as he rejoiced at your birth and had the opportunity and pleasure to work with him for many years thereafter. Recently he shared his joy of attending your wedding with our coffee group.
Your dad was a good friend and a proud father.
Kendra, we were very sorry to hear of the sudden passing of your Father. We enjoyed catching up with Ken around Rocky.

To Ken's family, I send you my sincere condolences and sympathy on hearing of his sudden passing. Ken was in my opinion one of the best neighbors and a person I was glad to call friend. He would do anything for anyone when called upon. He would cut grass, shovel and plow snow, and most handyman projects in the neighborhood when somebody asked for help and never asked for anything in return. He was quite a knowledgeable person as well as a jack of all trades. He also had a funny side to himself and loved the outdoors with biking, kayaking, walking, etc. I will miss are talks and bantering most of all that I had with Ken. For this he will be missed by all who knew him. R.I.P. old friend and God Bless.
You were an awesome neighbour and always willing to lend me some help. We had some great laughs throughout our time. You will be definitely missed as a friend and a neighbour.
Always an adventure with Ken. Positive and fun to catch up with in our retirements. As a colleague he was always supportive and genuinely loved his vocation. His fitness and activity levels were an example to us all as he loved his outdoors. My sincerest condolences to family and friends; RIP ole friend.
Ahh, this is such sad news! My condolences to the family. I worked with Ken and enjoyed everyday because everyday was an adventure in the classroom. RIP
