November 19 1934-November 28 2019
Ken passed into the arms of Our Lord after an 11 year struggle with Lewy Body Dementia and complications.
Our beloved Ken will be greatly missed by his wife Mary (OConnor), his children, Ken Jr (Elena), Cathy (Robert), Mark, Kevin (Nadia), Philip (Tanya) and his granddaughter Katarina.
He will also be missed by his stepson, William and step granddaughters, Sarah and Rachel.
Ken was predeceased by his much loved first wife, Rose (Coules) and siblings Gilbert, Leonard, and Florence.
He is survived by his brother Tony. Ken was a beloved uncle to many nieces and nephews.
As a young man, Ken embarked on a career in logging. Years later his expertise in forestry took his career in the direction of mapping and aerial photography. He was an avid fisherman and talented artist.
A gifted handy man, Ken’s final working days were spent taking care of the maintenance of his church.
Ken was faithful to the Lord. He completely surrendered and trusted himself to His Divine Mercy
His gentle and peaceful demeanour will be missed. His smile will be especially missed.
Heartfelt thanks to his past home support workers, Villa Marconi for their care over the past years and Elizabeth Bruyere for their support.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Lewy Body Dementia/Alzheimer’s Society of Canada www.alzheimer.ca and Companions of the Cross Ottawa www.companionscross.org
