Ken was an avid moose hunter and loved picking and eating bakeapples. Ken was known for his love of cooking and baking and he could make anything taste delicious. He loved watching movies and reading. There was nothing he loved more than listening to John Prine, except keeping “tabs” on his family. He was an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend.
Special thanks to Dr. Wendy Howse, Dr. Jody Woolfrey and the staff at the Dr. Hugh Twomey Health Center for their exceptional care of Ken in his last few days.
A private family viewing and funeral will be held. If people wish to make a donation in Ken’s memory, they can make it to the Palliative Unit at the Dr. Hugh Twomey Health Center, Canadian Cancer Society and the Canadian Diabetes Association.
