Well the one thing that always pops in my head when thinking about my dad, is we were working on a car for hours ended up taking the whole front end apart, pulling the motor, ect. Then we started putting everything back together and had everything just about done and I looked over on the parts table and there was a 4 and a half inch long bolt pretty thick... I picked it up said do you know what this goes to. He said nope... So we looked and looked and looked... Never ended up finding what that bolt went to... It looked pretty important.

Easy going is how Ken is described. Hard worker. Fun. Caring. Ken was loved and he will be missed. His presence was a welcoming one & his spirit gentle. He leaves his family & friends with warm memories and sadness for all he went through. My husband, my kids, & my parents all loved him. We all send our very best to Karen & the rest of the family too. God bless Ken's soul and for that matter Brad's, Frank's & Paul's too. Peace be thine.

Ken became my brother when I was just a young teenager. I remember spending a lot of time visiting Ken and Karen. I always felt at home when visiting with them. Ken was a great greeter, and made people feel loved with his lighthearted voice tone . Often he called people a special nickname, I was one such person. I fell in love with Winnie-the-Pooh my first year of college, and my family and friends started calling me, Chrissy Pooh which eventually turned into, Ppoh Bear by Ken and Karen. Even in my middle age he would greet me lovingly with an enthusiastic, "Pooh Bear!" This warmth, this affectionate way will be missed by myself and many others. Ken always had a hug, a smile, and some humor to share. He amazed people with his talents to invent things, make his gorgeous fish tanks, and create home movies. I love him and will cherish the time he was in our family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

One of my favourite memories of Ken is when he and his family came to my house in the middle of the night to rescue me and my family from the "flying" squirrel. The squirrel eventually flew on Ken's shoulder so Ken was calmly trying to walk towards the door with the squirrel still on his shoulder, I ended up screaming and so the squirrel ended up hiding behind my dining room cabinet until morning. My boys then opened the door in the morning and then took a broom and gently swept it out the door. I am sure the squirrel was happy to see trees again. ❤️ I am thankful for the many kind things Ken did for me. He is missed.
