My condolences to the family . I didn’t know Ken very well but I do know Shirley and her husband Dave. I remember Ken having a career with the railroad after finishing high school . I spent some time playing baseball in Mactier and met lots of people from the community back in the day. Ken was always a very nice guy and he will be missed by many. Such a young age these days to say goodbye.

-Gary Kennedy

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family with the passing of Ken. We have many fond and great memories of Industrial League hockey (opposing teams and all) but a lot of fun. Many great times while Scott (aka Murph) and our son, Bryan, played hockey together. A tough time for all. Cherish the memories.


Sorry to hear of Ken’s death. Brings back many memories from childhood playing hockey and softball together….
