Dear Marla and Valerie:
It was a privilege and honour to get to know your father. He was a most gracious and kind man. His smile radiated “warm fuzzies” when we would meet. His musical talents were appreciated by not only myself but all the residents at Nithview. I will hold very fond choir memories in my heart not only of your Dad but of your support of the programs he was involved in.
I was out of town on the weekend so missed seeing you but I’m sure our paths will cross again.

Blessings to you!

Condolence from Derek and Sharon Ingalls sent on January 6, 2018

It is with true sadness that we send this note of condolence. Of course it is with great joy also as dear Ken has entered into the divine presence of his dear Lord and Saviour. The Saviour that he fervently loved, served, and spoke of every time we talked with him.
It is such an honour to have known Ken and I (Sharon) cherish the time we were able to worship the Lord together sharing the talents God gave us playing our violin and trumpet. Oh how I wish I could salute Ken one last time with my violin. One day again…in heaven.
Our prayers are with all the family as we say a very heartfelt goodbye to a dear true friend.
Until we meet again Ken…
Derek and Sharon

Marla Ron & Family:
Our sincere sympathy on the passing of your father Ken. I only got to know him in the later years as we played together as a trumpet /piano duo on a few occasions. It was always so enjoyable to team up with him and produce wonderful music. It didn’t take long to realize what a gentleman Ken was and how adaptable and talented he was also. It was a pleasure and privilege to have known him and accompanied him in our music venues. He will be truly missed.

Condolence from Al & Audrey Saunders sent on January 5, 2018

Dear Marla & Val & families:
We were saddened to hear of the passing of our long-time friend and your Dad, Ken. As you probably know, he was best man in our wedding almost 56 years ago (July 28, 1962). Your Dad and Mom were very dear friends of ours and we had many enjoyable times double-dating with them. As saddened as we all are, it is heart-warming to know they are now both together in the presence of their Lord. Unfortunately we will be unable to make the trip from LaSalle to New Hamburg to be with you for the service, but our thoughts and prayers will be with you.
Many Blessings,

Al & Audrey Saunders

Condolence from Lloyd Oakey sent on January 5, 2018

I am so sorry I am not able to attend this wonderful man’s life celebration. Ken served as an elder, and we shared many discussions and insights. I looked to him as a spiritual father. He was always kind, understanding, and wise. He exemplified living a Christ-like life in every way. We have lost a man of God and a stalwart of the faith. And a great trumpet player. He impacted my life in so many ways! I console myself with the knowlege that my friend is in a place far better. I will be praying for Marla, Valerie, Ron & Rob, and their families as they grieve the loss. May God comfort us all.

Condolence from Elayne and Guy Heroux sent on January 4, 2018

Dear family:
We are very sorry for the loss of Ken. He is out of his pain now and has gone to join Audrey. I can imagine him playing his trumpet with the Angels. He was a wonderful husband, father, father-in-law and grandfather. We know that you will miss him, but hope that you are comforted by all the happy memories you have of him.
Please accept our sincere condolences. Keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Condolence from Ken & Andrea Jacob sent on January 4, 2018

An inspirational example of faith and faithfulness, a fine gentleman and a great friend to so many. We will dearly miss him but also rejoice with him as he has entered the hope of heaven with the commendation of “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
Love and prayers to the family.
