Ken was a wonderfully kind, thoughtful and compassionate man who lived well and left this life on his own terms. Ken had a 37 year career with BC Tel and retired to build cars, boats and houses. He and Myrna travelled by hot rods, cruise ships, boats, planes and trains meeting and enjoying old and new friends on their travels.

Ken leaves his loving wife Myrna, sister Norma, brother-in-law Bob and their children with their respective families. Ken would like to thank some special friends that made the intolerable tolerable, Darleen, Dave & Jeannie, Bob P. And Ed & Sonia.

A special thanks to Dr. Ian MacKenzie for his care and caring. No flowers please, instead donations to the Mount Newton Society at 2158 Mount Newton X Road https://mountnewtoncentre.org/donate/, would be appreciated.

    I was so sorry to hear of Ken’s passing Myrna. I remember when you met and the huge smile he brought to your beautiful face my dear friend. It has been far too long since we shared a glass of wine together, what wonderful memories I have of you both. My heart goes out to you at this very difficult time and I hope when this covid thing settles down we can get together for that long overdue glass of wine. Sending you much love Myrna!

  • Phil Borleske

    My deepest sympathy, Myrna, on your loss of Ken.
    One of my special memories of Ken was a family breakfast together 5 years ago at an Everett, Washington, restaurant: Ken, Norma, my sister Judy and brother Mark, and me.
    Many years ago, about 1954, my family (dad: Ted, one of Ray’s brothers) did a 4,000 auto + camping trip from Wisconsin to Vancouver and back, staying with Ray and Jane, Ken and Norma for a few days. I bunked with Ken in his room during that time.
    Blessings to you! Phil Borleske, Vinton, Iowa
