  • Mike Burke says:

    Truly a sad day when a good person like Ken is taken from us. My condolences go out to Gina, Nicole, and the rest of the family. I worked with Ken for a few years and enjoyed working with him, playing golf, having lunches and travelling together (which would include a beer or two). His friendship was one that I enjoyed and I’m sorry I won’t be able to see it again. We will always remember the good times, including a pseudo birthday surprise that he gave me that showed his sense of humour and friendship.

  • Keith Packard says:

    I worked with Ken for many years and I can’t say how much of a great man he was. He always thought of others before himself and always took the time to see how you were doing. I won’t forget how he could put so much energy in a room and when he laughed with his eyes shut. Simple things to remember I gues. My heart and prayers go out to Ken’s family and friends. I’m gonna miss you buddy.

  • Joe Calla says:

    Ken was a colleague of mine in our welding supply industry. We enjoyed some good times over the 20 plus years, my condolences to Michael and the entire Gould family.

    When we were kids I envied Kenny’s eyelashes – what girl wouldn’t – thick and dark. I remember one day at the Gould tree fort on 7th line the yellow jacket wasp nest – ooch. The Johnston girls are thinking of you – one and all. Keep your memories of Kenny close to your hearts. Luv … Jennifer on behalf of Lorna, Leanna and Jeanette.

  • Michael MacGillivray says:

    Dear Gina, Nicole and Family,

    Words can not express the loss of such a great man. He touched the hearts of many, mine included, through his kind and caring ways. Always the one to reach out to “see what’s new”, his caring was genuine and heartfelt. His values, he would not compromise, and he let everyone know this. His dedication to his family, his friends and his work were an inspiration to us all. I will miss the fun times we had, but will cherish the memories till we meet again.

    I am sorry that I can not be there to give my condolences in person and say farewell to my dear friend.

    My thoughts and prayers have and will continue to be with you in the days to come. Please do not linger too long in sadness, as the one thing Ken wanted was for everyone to be happy and have fun.

  • Francois Chartrand says:

    Ken was a jovial person , loving and sincere and we will miss you . Gina Nicole and all close family please accept my most sincere condolences . RIP my friend
