Ken was born in Toronto in 1939, but moved to Hullett Township when he was 10, and enjoyed country life on the home farm throughout his years.
In his teen years he farmed with his mom and dad, but made his life-long career in education. He started teaching in the area in 1963, and served as principal of Brussels Public School from 1967-86, and East Wawanosh 1986-96.
He met his wife Laura at an Educator’s workshop where he was teaching folk dancing. They shared a love of music and dancing and enjoyed 49 happy years together. He loved being a father and grandfather, and inspired in them, his love of animals, nature and music.
He was known in the community for his country band, which was started by his brother Jim; and for his involvement in sports playing broomball, hockey and base-ball right into his 80th year.
Ken loved travel and adventure and enjoyed scuba diving in Thailand, paragliding in Peru, and even last year at age 82, tried and succeeded at stand-up paddle boarding on Monck Lake.
Ken is admired by his family and friends for his constant positive outlook and determination during all the cancer treatments. He always kept his playful, fun loving zest for life. He will be dearly missed.
In lieu of flowers and as expressions of sympathy donation to the Londesborough United Church or the Canadian Cancer Society would be appreciated.
Cremation has taken place.
Family and Friends are invited to a Celebration of Ken’s life on Sunday September 25th, from 2-6pm, with a special tribute at 3:30pm. The event will be at his home outside of Blyth (40865 Hullett-McKillop Rd).
