    So sorry to hear that Uncle Ken has left us. I will always have such fond memories of him, especially of his beloved car and how Gladys and I were warned within an inch of our lives never to touch it. Of course, being us, we couldn’t resist putting a finger or two on it. Brats. What a lovely man he was and I know you will always miss him.

    Love Linda and Don

    We were very sad to hear of Ken’s passing. He was such a lovely gentleman who had a great sense of humour! We will always remember his vintage baby-blue GMC van that he stored with us for many years (literally decades). We know how much the van meant to Ken and his wife! Though we only connected briefly a couple of times each year, he felt like family and he will be missed!
    Sincerely,
