    Although I only knew Ken for the past 18 months we became good friends. Sharing many a story of ‘back home’ in particular the football. He was a true English gent whom I will miss dearly.

    Ken was our custodian at Springvalley Sec. school many years ago. What a lovely, genuine man. I would see him all the time out and about shopping, and he would always stop and have a chat with such kind words. We will sure miss him…. John and Gayle Kelly


    We have known Ken for many years and knew him more affectionally as Mr. B. We shared many stories about his engineering experiences and especially his time with the Highlander regiment. We will miss his friendship. Love to his family.

  • C. White says:

    My most heart felt condolences for your loss. I remember Mr.B when he was working at Springvalley secondary school. He was always smiling and joking around with us. He will be greatly missed.
